and analyzing data to determine why a microelectronic part or device failed is
done by all industries we serve at
AcousTech. With careful Failure Analysis, manufacturers gain knowledge that’s essential
to the development of new electronic products and the improvement of those
already on the market.
takes failed components collected by our clients and examines them primarily using
X-Ray, or some combination thereof to
determine the cause or causes of failure.
process – C-SAM® or X-Ray – may be used as the first step in
nondestructively identifying a host of potential problems. Both, for instance,
are useful in examining the condition of a microelectronic device before it’s
desoldered from a board, which can alter its condition. Beyond that, C-SAM®
excels in exposing die surface delamination, leadframe delamination,
delamination at a wirebond, and cracks. X-Ray inspection is especially good at
finding lifted or shorted wire bonds, excessive die-attach voiding, extraneous
material, excessive die-attach material, and chipped die edges.
