Abstract : An infrared checkout technique for the diagnosis of faults in electronic circuits is described. A radiometric system for implementation of the technique is illustrated. This report presents a statistical analysis of infrared scan data which was obtained from a total of 170 printed-circuit panels of four different configurations. Conclusions are drawn regarding machine error, registration error, emissivity error, and the infrared diagnostic capability. The infrared technique is shown to be effective. A discussion follows on various beneficial applications and implementation requirements. (Author)
