ICmasters uses a selection of best-in-class tools and workflows, including chemical and mechanical sample preparation techniques, specialized software and hardware, and state-of-the-art electron microscopy to generate the raw data used in our analyses. Our final deliverables are typically either claim charts documenting evidence of use of semiconductor patents in infringing technology, or more general analyses of leading edge technology that are of interest to technical benchmarking and competitive intelligence departments in the semiconductor industry. Have a look below at some examples taken from a selection of recent work.

Circuit Analysis

Process Analysis

Documenting Evidence of Use

ICmasters can help you extract a full-chip circuit schematic, understand which process type and node generation was used in a competing device, or prove your patented technology is being used by other vendors
