Electronic assemblies are often used under critical conditions, which increases the risk of malfunction and failure. Due to these increased requirements, existing quality tests for coated assemblies have been continuously improved. New tests were developed especially for the control of coatings. In addition to quality control in the production and supply chain, the quality tests offer the possibility of safely preparing assemblies for the reliability tests, so that passing these tests is ensured in the best possible way.
