Real Time X-ray (RTX)

RTX is a high-resolution 20-180 kV microfocus X-ray inspection system for real-time inspection of electronic components, solder joints and metallurgical samples.

RTX uses high-energy X-rays to look through samples and shows a density map of the device. Click here to view samples of these images. It is very useful for examining components not visible on the exterior of the sample:, such as bond wires, die size, solder connections and other components.

Ideal Uses of RTX

  • Non-destructive way to detect defects within a sealed device
  • Screening of production electronic components to military standards
  • Outstanding application for failure analysis investigations
  • Client witnessed live radiographic inspection
RTX techniques from EAG Laboratories for Real Time X-ray Defect Detection


  • Non-destructive inspection technique
  • 180 degree table rotation
  • 70 degree Detector tilt capability


  • Large sample size
  • Cannot resolve very thin separations, delaminations or micro cracks
  • Not good for very light materials

RTX Technical Specifications

  • Resolution of 0.2 microns; beam voltage from 10-180 kV
  • Three-inch sample size capability in a single image. Larger samples require multiple images, with maximum sample size ~22 inches square and larger with limited viewing areas
