Retronix Certified | Industry leaders in IC Tests
IC test by Retronix include:
Visual inspection is an effective component testing method. By utilising optical inspection and visual inspection techniques, Retronix can confirm that your recovered components are in good condition. We will inspect for damage which may have occurred while they were on the PCBs and in some cases fix these defects. More info
XRF testing/XRF Analysis (RoHS Compliant):
Our XRF analysis facility provides a non-destructive method to determine what alloy a termination consists of. Once recovered, Retronix can determine what alloy is on the device terminations. Once reported to you, we can then convert to a different alloy if desired. More info
Our solderability test verifies whether a component is re-solderable or not and if it is ready to be placed onto your PCBs for reflow. If not, Retronix can strip the terminations and re-tin to the specified alloy if required. More info
Electrical component Testing (Curve Trace):
The BEST (BGA & Electrical Silicon Test) is an electrical component test used to check the electrical parameters of every pin to pin e.g. current, voltage, diode resistivity, and silicon connectivity.
This is a very strong tool which allows Retronix to confirm that the recovered devices are in good working condition. A Retronix Certificate will be published for your recovered components to show the results of our tests.More info
Key Function Test:
Some devices may need to be tested by creating a circuit to ensure that they are operating as expected. With the aid of the component datasheet, Retronix can create a circuit and an IC Test for your device to check the key aspects of the device. For example, recovered MOSFETs can be tested to confirm that they still meet the manufacturer’s specifications. More info
Flash Memory Test/ Memory Programming:
With recent investment into more programming equipment, Retronix can not only program your components, we can also use our programmers to check for counterfeit programmable components. Using this tool, we can easily check device ID codes and confirm if your devices are BLANK or already programmed.
Already programmed FLASH parts can be erased back to factory default settings. Enquire for more information. More info
De-Cap and Device Non Functionality Analysis:
Retronix can de-cap your IC and check for a range of visual indicators to help authenticate the originality of the device. We can also check for IC damage at high optical magnifications as the potential cause for test failures. More info
Ionic contamination testing is required as ionic residues remaining from both the PCB manufacturing and the soldering process may affect the reliability of the finished assembly.
Extreme Temperature Test:
Temperature extremes can significantly alter the mechanical and electrical properties of a component, such as brittleness of ICs, electrical conductivity and frequencies.
