The electronics industry is characterized by a continuing trend towards miniaturization and increasing functional integration. This also increases the quality assurance requirements. For example, in printed circuit board manufacturing, coatings down to the nanometer range must be analyzed. Lead frames, in particular, have multiple thin layers of gold, palladium, nickel and copper. These layers may be only a few nanometers thick.
