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.
