lam·i·nag·ra·phy

, laminography (lam'i-nog'ră-fē, lam'i-nog'ră-fē),
Radiographic technique in which the images of tissues above and below the plane of interest are blurred out by reciprocal movement of the x-ray tube and film holder, to show a specific area more clearly.

A laminography system comprises the hardware that positions the sample, source and detector to acquire 2D projection data, as well as an algorithm to reconstruct a 3D volume image from data generated by a custom Nikon Metrology 225/450kV X-ray scanner.
The voiding percentage on the ground pad of QFN/BTC component at U314 was measured using the laminography x-ray system, and the results shown as box plots in FIGURE 8.
Both CT and tomosynthesis are distinct from laminography: They acquire all the information to develop any view from the same set of images.
Various testing technologies exist to ensure a sound electrical connection is created, but automated x-ray laminography is the only available technology that can ensure the through-hole solder joint meets the IPC-A-610 specifications of barrel fill.
The traditional approach to 3-D AXI is based on laminography, a method widely used to inspect double-sided boards that requires motion of the X-ray source, detector, and board.
3-D x-ray laminography or planar computed tomography (PCT) combines the capabilities of 2-D x-ray and endoscopic technology with added features.
