Electrotek Forensic Analysis

Electrotek Forensic Analysis

The effects of poor PQ on end-use equipment often results in damaged printed circuit boards (PCBs) and electronic components. Many failed products exhibit no visual damage. Regardless of effects, much can be learned about the causes of failure from conducting a forensic analysis. Electrotek PQ engineers apply a process that reveals which components failed whether the electronics are potted in a protective material or exposed. Our forensic analysis determines which area of a circuit failed as well as the failure mechanism(s) and failure modes including identification of cascading failures. Results from our analysis can be used to help equipment owners determine the appropriate course of action to ensure failed product is replaced as economically as possible.
