Materials and failure analysis of electronics hardware

The extremely fast development within the areas of both materials and technology, means that there is an ever increasing risk of more and more faults and mistakes being made in electronics manufacture. These can be extremely expensive if not picked up in time. It is therefore very important to catch, identify, analyse and rectify any weaknesses in a product or manufacturing as early as possible

Test and quality checks of electronics

We offer tests and quality checks, so that you can test and develop your product and processes during the development phase in order to reduce any development loops and thereby achieve a shorter time to market. Early failure due to design weaknesses and material/process related defects can be analysed using HALT/HASS testing which stimulates defects to failure. Ageing and wear related failures require accelerated tests designed to simulate the failure mechanism in order to enable the expected lifetime to be estimated. We can carry out both types of testing.

Materials- and failure analysis

For this analysis we use non destructive methods such as Optical Microscopy, Micro Focus X-ray, and Scanning Acoustic Microscopy often followed by destructive analysis to verify the results. Applying our knowledge on processes, materials, and electronics packaging we find the failures and help you to recitify them.
