Destructive Physical Analysis
(DPA)Is the process of disassembling,
testing, and inspecting a component for the purpose of determining conformance with applicable design and process
requirements. This process of sample testing is used to ensure that a high reliability component or device is fabricated
to the required standards. Destructive Physical Analysis is also used effectively to discover process defects for
troublesome production lot problems.
Failure Analysis Capabilities of Tandex Test Labs are extremely important to support our in-house manufacturing
efforts and are also available to analyze customer component and equipment problems. Techniques and equipment utilized
in providing our Destructive Physical Analysis capability are also used effectively to analyze failures, determine
failure causes, and recommend corrective actions. These failure analysis capabilities are exceptionally important
in finding early solutions to troublesome production problems that show up as device or component failures.
