ZEISS/MCS Webinar – From Virtual to Reality – How to Target and Investigate Condition within Advanced Electronic Packages – Tuesday 26th September 2023

ZEISS Microscopy in partnership with MCS Group are organising a webinar on “How to Target and Investigate Condition within Advanced Electronic Packages” by Stewart McCracken of MCS Group on Tuesday 26th September 2023 at 12:00 – 13:00 (UK (BST) time)

The complexity of current electronics-based systems, make identifying the source of a system malfunction a real challenge. A correlative workflow for physical analysis is particularly effective, find out why in our upcoming webinar. Our speakers will share their experience and tips for troubleshooting electronics packages.

Mr. Stewart McCraken (MCS Group) will discuss what it takes to identify and target specific features of components within its packaging. He will also share the details of a forensic analysis case study, highlighting how information contained in the material microstructure can be used for failure diagnosis.

Join us on 26th September 2023 for an informative session and Q&A. Register today to attend or to receive the webinar recording by email.

ZEISS Webinar – Quick Methods for Examination of P/N Junctions in Power Devices- 21st March 2023 – 13:00 UK Time

ZEISS Microscopy are organising a webinar on “Quick Methods for Examination of P/N Junctions in Power Devices” by Greg Johnson of ZEISS Microscopy on Tuesday 21st March 2023 at 13:00 – 14:00 (UK (GMT) time)

Power semiconductors are key components for transportation, electrical grids, and industrial drives. As the reliability of such devices can be affected by such phenomena as overcurrent, desaturation, and avalanche breakdown, it is critical to be able to evaluate junction health and uniformity with simple methods. This webinar will demonstrate the value of analysing power semiconductors in FA with Passive Voltage Contrast (PVC) in the SEM as well as nanoprobing concepts such as Electron Beam Induced Current (EBIC).

These techniques in combination examine not only the metallurgical p/n junction but also the corresponding depletion zones of the junction. An experimental method for examining the depletion zones in-situ as the gate bias will also be presented.
