The PS-1000 is a video microscope designed to give users a side view of solder bumps beneath BGAs, CSPs or QFPs. A special prism directs the illumination ray to the object through a mirror at the edge and reflects the image. The scope is hand-held, and said to be compact and lightweight. Solder joints of QFPs or J-leads are also able to be monitored at approximately 100X if the prism is removed. With a CCD camera, images can be seen on a monitor, and reports can be made or printed out using a personal computer (PC).
