Testing Services for the Microelectronic Industry
A comprehensive suite of tests evaluating the quality and integrity of microelectronic
components and manufacturing practices.
Internal Vapor Analysis (IVA™)
Internal Vapor Analysis (IVA™) is a versatile and precise test procedure developed at
ORS for the Residual Gas Analysis (RGA) of hermetic packages. The IVA™ method
utilizes advanced Mass Spectrometry techniques to accurately determine the relative
concentrations of gas or vapor content in hermetic devices, modules, packages, and
Internal Vapor Analysis (IVA™) may now be performed by Gas Chromatography with
Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) to identify unknown volatile and semi-volatile organics in
hermetic devices, modules, and packages. ORS has developed a procedure to determine
relative concentrations of gases in these packages using a modified GC sample inlet
designed at ORS. The GC/MS procedure allows positive identification of unknown
organics not traditionally identified during RGA analysis. This procedure is an excellent
complement to RGA for a “complete picture” of internal vapors.
ORS offers two types of non-destructive hermeticity testing. Test methods are designed
to determine the quality of a hermetic seal. Fine leak rates are quantified using a helium
mass spectrometer or a Kr85 Scintillation Detector. Gross leak rates are characterized by
perflourocarbons, dye pentrants or devices failing the initial Kr85 gross leak
pressurization. Specialized testing capabilities to measure the leak rate of various other
gases or compounds (i.e. Argon, Acetic Acid, etc.) are also available.
Materials Outgassing Studies
The Material Outgassing Characterization test, developed at ORS, is a qualitative and
quantitative analysis of the off-gassed gaseous substances desorbed from bulk materials.
Outgassing studies may be useful in determining hydrogen desorption rates, adhesive
outgassing species (pre and post cure), and to characterize other organic bulk materials
used in high reliability components, including polymers, coatings, and epoxies. This
method can even be modified to identify organic contamination on materials.
Organic Mass Spectrometry
Numerous techniques are available to identify volatile and semi-volatile organic
compounds, and impurities from a variety of sample matrices. Sensitivity in the ppb
range is commonly obtained. A useful technique to identify low level "unknown" organic
compounds in IVA™ data.
Typically performed on microelectronic devices to determine or evaluate the inherent
design and robustness of a component by examining its physical characteristics and
quality of workmanship.
Destructive Physical Analysis
Disassembly, testing and inspection of microelectronic devices to determine
conformance with applicable design, process and procurement requirements.
A comprehensive examination of failed devices or components to verify a reported
failure mode, identify the failure mechanism, and recommend corrective actions.
