Increase the Reliability of Products in the Field with DPA

Long-Term Reliability for Electronic Components

High reliability electronic components like integrated circuits are often required to operate for long periods of time, having little or no opportunity for replacement.

The long-term reliability of these components is especially important to the defense, aerospace, and automotive industries.

Destructive Physical Analysis (DPA)

Destructive Physical Analysis (DPA) is a systematic detailed examination of components during various stages of physical disassembly. Parts are examined for a wide variety of design, workmanship, and processing problems that may not show up during normal screening tests.
DPA test is routinely used by the aerospace industry to qualify electronic components. More and more commercial applications are using DPA screening to dramatically increase the reliability of their products in the field.

More Than 50 Years of DPA experience

Eurofins EAG Laboratories (formerly SEAL Laboratories) has been performing Destructive Physical Analysis (DPA) since 1972 on materials used in aerospace, commercial, military, and government applications.

Surface Analysis on 3D Printed Titanium

For 3D printed products, XPS can provide composition and bonding information for the top 5-10nm sample surfaces. Oftentimes, surface contamination/oxide thickness would affect the appearance (as well as performance when applicable) of the material, and XPS could help identify the source and/or cause.
