Failure analysis

Failure analysis is used to determine why a failure has happened. Consequently, it is a crucial part of reliability testing and analysis.

We specialize in demanding failure analysis and offer several different techniques for it!

Failure analysis is a useful tool if unexpected failures have occurred in your product during use. With carefully selected failure analysis methods we can find out what went wrong and how you can prevent it from happening in the future.

Failure analysis is typically started with electrical measurements and with visual inspection. The analysis can then be continued using other non-destructive methods such as scanning acoustic microscopy (SAM). This technique enables analysis of cracks and delaminations within components and joints using acoustic signals.

Very often we perform failure analysis by preparing cross-sections of the failed structure. By carefully grinding and polishing the surface, we can use various microscopic techniques to study very small details of the failed structures. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) with elemental analysis is a typical and effective analysis method to determine the reasons for the failures.
