Description

Utilizing Lap and Polish Techniques for the Safe Removal of Chips from Printed Circuit Boards

As technology advances, new challenges are presented for digital forensics teams. Devices unsupported by industry tools, password-protected or even damaged devices may not present readily available options to retrieve data. In some situations, the only possible option for the retrieval of data from an electronic device may be removal and direct read from the chips attached to printed circuit boards.

Electronic device manufacturers evolve electronics designs to address ever more powerful devices and smaller circuit board components. Changes to the manufacturer assembly processes including epoxy underfills and conformal coatings matched with thinner chips and more fragile dies force the evolution of techniques by anyone addressing and handling modern electronic devices.

VTO’s Lap and Polish Chip Removal class is distinguished by a strong emphasis on the science behind chip removal. Many in industry would be surprised to learn there is already peer-reviewed science related to these new techniques. Class participants walk away grounded in the industry standards and peer-reviewed literature that guides the daily practices of the digital forensics labs of VTO Inc.

The second strong emphasis of the Chip Removal Practices class is daily hands-on with a variety of tools and machines required to safely remove and read chips to printed circuit boards. Class participants will gain experience on entry level through advanced equipment to understand the theory behind each technique and identify the right equipment within the budget constraints of their agencies.

Labs that have adopted the lap and polish techniques with proper trained personnel and calibrated equipment have seen their chip failures drop substantially. Class participants will be learning from the same instructors and class outline used to train government agencies.

VTO’s strong emphasis on science and practice grounds class participants with a proper, defensible understanding of accepted removal practices. This emphasis linked with daily hands-on practice utilizing industry leading equipment and techniques.
