Our Completed Projects

We address a variety of issues in the areas of design development and test/homologation services.

Example of element removal service

What led to the introduction of the service?

One of our customers had the following problem:
They were seeking a way to quickly remove elements on the printed circuit boards they manufactured to analyze defects. It was also necessary to make the backsides of elements and board surface observable in order to enable observation of migration.

Issues before introduction

The phenomenon of migration where metal ions diffuse out is a primary cause of electric board failure. The customer needed a mechanism that could quickly remove the elements and accurately evaluate the quality of the mounting board. However, the "element removal" process required for this took a lot of time and effort, and they wanted to speed up the process.

Examples of use after introduction

The customer decided to use our element removal service for investigating the causes of PCB failures and for observing migration after conducting reproduction and reliability tests.

Element removal:
What is element removal?
It is the process of removing the elements on a board so that the back of the element and the surface of the board can be observed.

Result:
Element removal for observation of migration

Examples of use after introduction

Consequently, they are now able to accurately observe the backsides of elements and the surface of the board, resulting in more accurate quality evaluations of printed circuit boards. Observation of migration can also now be performed quickly to find potential degradation factors of PCBs, enabling early detection of problems. The service also helped speeding up the time-consuming element removal process, shortening the inspection and evaluation processes. All of these aspects have made it easier for them to investigate countermeasures and reduced the discrepancies in product quality.
