Computer Chip Laser Decapsulation Failure Analysis

Laser Technology Refined

This application can fully or partially replace traditional micro-drilling, sawing and chemical etching processes. The FALIT® provides fast and accurate solutions for IC de-capsulation, cross-sectioning and de-lidding, expose the insides from ceramic, KOVAR, gel and mold compound capsulation, expose defective bonding wires, observe solder ball mis-position and lamination cracks, and more evidence of failure.

Versatile Laser Machines

With the FALIT® laser micromachining technology, users can easily resolve the many challenges in IC chip failure analysis of new packaging patterns and material. This system significantly saves setup and processing time, and the cost of building infrastructure for expensive acid protection labs.
