A different look at your PCB – Infrared
Here are some pictures of the same PCB, but running different software applications:
- Notice the CPU temperature difference when nothing is running (49.9°C) and when a test is running (76.4) – compare the first and third picture.
- Have a look at the picture in the middle. Memories become more visible when running a memory test.
- See the huge difference in Ethernet temperature when Ethernet cable is connected (the middle picture, bottom right corner) and disconnected.
- It’s interesting to see, how the whole PCB will warm up from a few hot components – the module PCB is much warmer than the Baseboard PCB (in background).
