Printed Circuit Boards under the Microscope

Stereo microscopes are often used to view printed circuit boards. A typical setup uses a stereo zoom microscope and either an LED ring light or a 150w halogen dual pipe light. Transmitted light is not needed. A large base stand or a boom stand is used to provide working room under the microscope.
