WHAT IS A DIGITAL MICROSCOPE?

A digital microscope is a relatively new type of inspection and measurement technology that is equipped with an imaging device, usually a CCD or CMOS sensor, which takes the place of your eyes. The image collected by the camera is displayed in real-time on a built-in LCD monitor.
This equipment is able to cover a magnification range from 0.1× - 5000×, making it incredibly useful for R&D, quality, failure analysis, and manufacturing-based applications.
