IC Inside Lab

DEPACKAGING – DELAYERING – IMAGERY

IC Inside Lab is a subsidiary of Texplained, based in the same offices.

IC Inside Lab is an independent service laboratory specialising in the physical preparation, analysis and imaging of semiconductor devices and other electronic components.

Services range in complexity from a simple mechanical cross-section of a Printed Circuit Board (PCB) to a full layer-by-layer deprocessing and imaging of an Integrated Circuit (IC).

We use almost three decades of hands-on silicon experience to offer our clients a focused, efficient and comprehensive range of cost-effective solutions that meet, and regularly exceed their expectations.

IC Inside Lab couples unique semiconductor hardware experience with a truly unique tool-set in our Sophia-Antipolis facility:

  • Semiconductor Delayering and Imaging
  • Semiconductor Cross Sectioning
  • Semiconductor Package Cross Sectioning
  • Chemical Processes

ROM Extraction

ROM is the only memory on a chip which is hard-wired at production and can never be altered. For that reason ROM is the most relied upon data in any piece of hardware. When extraction of the ROM code needs to be evaluated, whether it be a few kilobytes or several gigabytes, we can physically read that data out from the chip and back into a binary file that can subsequently be decoded and understood.
