Failure Analysis is done using a scientific approach during which the device under investigation is carefully analyzed to establish a link between the electrical or mechanical failure mode reported by the customer to a physical failure mechanism on the device under investigation. The characteristic feature of the passive component failure analysis is consideration of all possible failure multiplicities (i.e double, triple and quadruple failures) and their combinations. Delaminations of embedded passive components are often associated with reliability problems. Understanding the delamination can help us quickly identify the failure caused at an early stage of failure analysis.
Passive fire barrier is heavy-bodied, single-part latex designed for use on construction materials such as oriented strand board, structural insulated panels and framing lumber. It also is used on aluminum and steel sheets, round and box steel columns. When activated by heat or flame, a dense carbon char is formed separating and shielding the substrate from heat while off gassing displaces oxygen from the treated surface; thus eliminating two of the three components needed for combustion.
