XRF is used in many industries for non-destructive elemental analysis. For the electronics industry – where plating thickness measurements on small, densely-packed areas must be accurate and precise – the technology is adapted to handle complex geometries and tiny features. XRF is up to the task but taking measurements on modern electronics isn’t always straightforward.

At Hitachi, we’ve been designing XRF coatings analyzers specifically for the unique challenges of the electronics industry for over 45 years. In that time, we’ve learned a lot about best practices, and we’ve put that knowledge into our most comprehensive user guide yet - ‘Understanding your XRF: A Guide for Electronics Plating’. This easy-to-read guide aims to give you a better understanding of XRF to know what situations may need special attention, how to handle those situations and how to improve your testing program.
