RAPIDETCH

IC Decapsulation with Single & Dual Acid Systems

The RAPIDETCH Chemical IC Decapsulator series has been designed form the ground-up to meet the Industry's past, current and future product needs for ic decapsulation, counterfeit protection and packages containing - copper decapsulation, aluminum decapsulation, gold decapsulation, and polyamide decapsulation.

EASY ACCESS CONTROLS

All system controls - program timers, temperature, acid mix, pressure -- are mounted on the front-panel of  RAPIDETCH for easy access. This provides the user friendliness required by multi-tasking users in busy labs.

SAFER BY DESIGN

RAPIDETCH's use of vacuum pressure pumping technology provides an inherently operator-safe interface. Acid flow is regulated by the drawn vacuum.

No seal = no vacuum = no acid flow!

EASY MAINTENANCE

The system's design allows for easy and inexpensive extended maintenance -- all system components can be replaced by the user on-site. This optimizes up-time and puts the lab staff fully in control -- wherever the system is located throughout the world.


DUAL, SINGLE & PRE-MIXED ACID CAPABILITIES

The use of nitric and sulfuric acid mixes has become commonplace for modern package decapsulation. RAPIDETCH provides a new benchmark for the mixing of precise acid ratios and the control of acid temperature at the the etch head.

For users with a smaller variety of package types, or for those operating within tight budgets, a single acid system using single strength or pre-mixed acids, is available. For copper, aluminum, gold bond wires and polyamide coatings - recipes exist to optimize etch results.
