Areas of Expertise - Semiconductors and Integrated Circuits - RGA

One of Atlantic Analytical’s specialty programs is in Residual Gas Analysis (RGA) including hermetically sealed device content identification and impurities determination, leak rate and outgassing kinetics, for electronic parts and components originating from various industries. Our test methods meet or exceed the critical MIL-STD-883 and MIL-STD-750 Suitability requirements, as they apply to METHOD 1018, PROCEDURE 1, with package volumes from 0.01 – 2.0 cm³. All analyses are performed on our mass spectrometer systems, which were designed and developed by Atlantic Analytical or by major instrument manufacturers.

Other chemical components used to fabricate these parts may also be involved when these parts fail, and if they do, RGA can be combined with Head Space GC-MS to identify and quantitate volatile components from these parts.
