Electronic Products Testing & Failure Analysis
The extensive testing and fabrication capabilities of the laboratory can be made available for a wide range of technical investigations. The capabilities and skills are in place to do virtually any kind of material, mechanical, and electronic device fabrication including work that requires precise machining, vacuum processing, and depositions. Prototype devices can be tested under virtually any electrical stimulus and measured for electrical performance. A wide range of optical performance tests and evaluations can also be performed.
Circuit Analysis and Fabrication
Circuit analysis and circuit design capability can be made available as needed. The Laboratory engineers have expertise in circuit analysis and circuit design for a wide range of product applications.
Product Failure Analysis and Reverse Engineering
The Laboratory has the equipment and expertise to perform both non-destructive as well as tear down analyses of nearly every type of electronics based product. The Laboratory can provide any type of electrical testing, optical examination under specially configured microscopes, additional optical testing such as light and color measurements, SEM analysis, and any mechanical or structural testing that may be required.
Patent Portfolio Analysis
Dr. Silzars, the principal investigator of the Laboratory, has over 30 years of experience in electronics technology, including microwave devices, and has been both a technologist and also a technology business manager. He has many years of experience as an inventor and as a litigation-experienced evaluator of patents, patent portfolios, and patent claims. With this extensive experience base, a thorough and careful analysis can be performed efficiently and with a high level of assurance that the recommendations will hold up under further scrutiny.
Patent Infringement Evaluation
The Laboratory is set up to provide a cost-effective methodology for assessing products for possible infringement of patent claims. With extensive experience and understanding electronics and optical devices, and with many years of litigation experience, the process of identifying possible patent infringement issues is made highly efficient by performing only those tests that are likely to lead to a productive outcome.
Expert Witness Reports and Testimony
Dr. Silzars has over 15 years of recognized experience in writing expert witness reports as well as in giving depositions and courtroom testimony. Therefore, the results obtained from testing products can be efficiently reflected in reports that may be needed as part of a litigation process.
