IC Failure Analysis Services

Testing as a Service (TaaS)

 

Circuit 101: Identify root causes of failures and prevent failure recurrence in the future.

Failure Analysis (FA) is a critical aspect of product development, which helps us learn from the past and prevent future failures. Our Failure Analysis is an outsourcing model in which the analysis is performed by Talent 101 staff rather than our customer’s employees. Our Testing as a Service (TaaS) solution maximizes the productivity of our customer’s FA testing process, production, and work in progress (WIP). Building vs. buying a Failure Analysis Technician team is a question growing organizations face. Testing as a Service (TaaS) outsourcing initiatives are providing new alternatives. Our customers define all Failure Analysis test parameters. Talent 101 leads the adaptable staffing and resource alignment strategy.

Our customers drive the strategy with input from Talent 101 and have the oversight responsibility to validate Talent 101’s performance for our failure analysis services. Talent 101 manages and deploys its FA Technician resources on a day-to-day basis to meet the service level agreements (SLA) established in the contract. Our resource plans align with our customers FA test processes, production, work in progress (WIP), and availability of standard bench/Lab equipment. Talent 101’s FA Technicians are under the direction of the Talent 101 leadership team.

How will the U.S. overcome the semiconductor skilled labor shortage?

Job postings for electrical engineers in the U.S. semiconductor industry grew 78% from 2020 to 2021 — more than three times faster than growth for electrical engineers overall. What’s more, the U.S. semiconductor industry will need between 70,000 and 90,000 new workers by 2025 to meet the most critical workforce needs, reported Eightfold.ai

There are many strategies being aimed at helping the industry overcome today’s unrelenting labor crisis. But will any of them work?

Why the U.S. needs to focus on growing domestic semiconductor production

By now, the world is fully aware of the impact of the semiconductor chip shortage — the industry, businesses, and the economy have taken enormous hits. But there is another looming concern that industry leaders say threatens the U.S. semiconductor industry — national security. 

The problem, as many see it, is that the U.S. has become too dependent on chip manufacturing in Asia. Both the recent war in Ukraine and long-brewing tensions between countries in close proximity to China are making national security an increasingly urgent issue.
