Device Preparation for Single Event Effects Testing

Device Preparation

Preparation for Single Event Effects (SEE) Testing can be quite demanding. Cobham RAD can significantly lessen these demands by using Cobham RAD proprietary processes and techniques that simplify this task.

Backside thinning to 35um allows for SEE testing at TAMU or Berkeley without repackaging of ICs.

Cobham RAD offers Quick-Turn Prototype IC Assembly, Chip Removal and Re-assembly for Radiation Testing, Backside Chip Thinning for Heavy Ion Radiation testing, PC Board Design, and Laser Marking.
