Consumer Electronics Testing

Consumer Electronics Testing has been an important part of EAG for over 30 years, and we offer the most comprehensive suite of testing techniques for characterization of consumer electronics. We understand the need for first-to-market breakthrough technologies, and the challenges of maintaining supply chain quality and efficiency from international providers. 

EAG Laboratories provides expert materials and electronics testing for consumer electronics products.

With laboratories located around the world, EAG scientists have supported customers creating products for consumer electronics such as mobile devices, tablets, computers, wearables, and health tracking devices. Over the years, we’ve earned a reputation worldwide for developing new methods to advance consumer electronics product development and for solving materials-related issues. WE KNOW HOW to pursue intense electronics innovation but still ensure consumer product safety and quality.


EAG offers a comprehensive suite of services for the consumer electronics industry, meeting the industry’s exacting standards for tight controls of material properties, composition and chemistry. Here are just a few ways we can help:

  • Failure analysis: Our labs possess a comprehensive array of advanced tools and techniques available for performing failure analysis on integrated circuits and other electronic devices. The failure analysis services range from Level 1 non-destructive examination to Level 3 fault isolation and root cause identification and characterization.
  • Characterization of materials: Investigation of materials-related issues is extremely important in modern consumer electronics processing and packaging. This includes organic analysis of plastics/polymers, flux, lubricants and solder masks, as well as elemental analysis of wire bonds, bond pads, leads and lead frames.
  • Sensitizers testing: We use GC/MS, LC/MS, and ICP/MS  to determine if the presence of any transferred chemicals are skin sensitizers with potential for toxic, allergenic or abrasion concerns.
  • Purity Certification: Inspection of raw materials during key phases of manufacturing can aid in the identification and elimination of unwanted impurities in final products.
  • Advanced Microscopy: Microscopy techniques are essential to investigate sample micro-structure, morphology, particle size, particle coatings and defects in thin/thick film or bulk substrate samples.
  • Metallurgical Analysis: Metallurgical investigations including fractures, fatigue, corrosion, contamination, wear, heat, and stress related failures.
  • Surface Analysis: Solving surface chemistry issues with adhesion and bonding, questions regarding surface cleanliness and investigations regarding morphology and topography of materials’ surfaces
  • Coatings Analysis: Depth-specific distribution measurements and chemical survey characterizations of coatings.
  • Polymer Characterization: Providing expertise and experience in polymer-related challenges and offer a complete range of analyses for polymers and composites.
  • Electronic System Testing: Our team offers the engineering expertise to design, develop, test, analyze, and debug the most innovative products using ATE, System level testing, reliability and IC-level Failure Analysis.
  • EMC & Environmental: Evaluate components for use in extreme electromagnetic & environmental conditions.
  • Litigation Support Services: Providing scientific expertise, data interpretation, analytical litigation support, or provide an expert witness testimony.
  • Consultation and Project Management: We understand the need for first-to-market breakthrough technologies and EAG can collaborate to provide results-driven solutions to the most complex of analytical investigations. Our experienced experts will work with your team to troubleshoot, and choose the right material for your application, or improve a manufacturing process.
