Introduction

Accelerated Analysis is a specialist supplier of failure analysis tools, textbooks and seminars; a source for hard to find information and tools needed by failure analysts.

PRECISION TOOLS FOR SEM SAMPLE PREPARATION

Anyone can produce perfect polished cross sections to very precise locations on a chip using Accelerated Analysis polishing fixtures and materials. No special skills are required. Samples are not encapsulated and remain on the mount throughout the polishing , visual inspection and SEM inspection.

PRECISION TOOLS FOR FAILURE ANALYSIS BY HOT SPOT DETECTION
Hot Spot Detection using Liquid Crystals identifies failure sites on active devices.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS
Accelerated Analysis innovations has introduced updated and completely new product lines:

  • Liquid crystal for hot spot detection is now available in premixed solutions preferred by many analysts.
  • A new line of parallel polish and cross section fixtures - compatible with all 8 inch polishers. We also supply Struers high quality polishers.
  •  A complete line of diamond, alumina, and SiC abrasives on Mylar film.
  • Our wet nitride etch, GREEN™, has been well received as an etch for thinning or removing plasma nitride for failure analysis and other deprocessing tasks. GREEN™ is selective to both aluminum and oxide. It offers an alternative to dry plasma etching and avoids the possibility of plasma charging damage.

Because we use the materials we offer, we can provide application tips to help solve customers' challenges. Accelerated Analysis has the experience and knowledge necessary to select and use failure tools efficiently and effectively. Short courses on specific topics may be arranged for presentation at your site. Comprehensive training courses are offered for engineers and technicians.
