Keywords: Failure Analysis, Environmental Testing, Chemical Analysis

Failure analysis is a common term that is used in the electronics industry for the process of investigating variables that may have resulted in a defect or interruption in function. We can perform the investigation and supply a resolution to prevent future failures or defects. Failure can be observed at any step in the process, from manufacturing to a field return. If you have encountered a problem in your process, members of our team will meet with you prior to the analysis to investigate the best route of identifying the root cause.
