Failure Analysis 4.0

The goal of Failure Analysis 4.0 was to develop smart AI based tools for a mostly automated process chain for failure diagnostics integrating self-learning data analysis and defect detection and localization, standardized material analysis and centralized data acquisition and correlation to electrical performance data

The Failure Analysis (FA) 4.0 project has addressed a fundamental challenge for the digital world: how to ensure that increasingly complex electronic systems operate with complete reliability and safety in daily use. This is essential in safety-critical applications such as autonomous vehicles and in digitalized industrial production (Industry 4.0). FA 4.0 has provided innovative AI-based tools and methods to analyse and avoid defects and failures during the development and manufacture of electronic components and systems. With its holistic approach spanning chip production, assembly & packaging, to board and system level, the project’s outcomes have proved to be crucial for the competitiveness of European electronic devices, especially in the demanding automotive and industrial sectors.
