Semiconductor devices are present in our day to day life such as in cars, telephones, computer and other electronic devices. Corrosion Failure analysis for semiconductor devices involves investigations of various aspects of an electronic device and measures the changes in the structures of such devices and its components due to misapplication, corrosion, environmental degradation abuse, and electric failure. Few industrial issues which resists engineers, can be economically more vital as compared to the metal and semiconductor equipment corrosion. The failure of metallic corrosion or the semiconductor devices gives rise to billion dollars globally every year.
One of driver which increase market of corrosion failure in semiconductor and electronic devices is for higher preventive methods of corrosion failure. There has been higher investments in R&D to explore the preventive methods to perform corrosion analysis of the semiconductor devices and electronic systems. Advantages of Power electronics & semiconductor devices which help them to operate at higher power density such as simplified circuits, less driving power, reverse blocking capabilities and optimum forward. Vendors are investing more in Research & Development processes to manufacture devices which operates at higher levels of preventive methods of corrosion failure. Thus, in many high-power applications demanded to drives the market. Few established vendors are still engaged in the large-scale manufacturing methods for prevention of corrosion failure. This will likely lead to an increase in sales and volume.
Corrosion failure can be bifurcated as localized and uniform. Uniform corrosion is the most common type of corrosion failure. Electrochemical is mechanism of uniform corrosion is identified as a consistent loss of material over the entire exposed surface of the material. This type of corrosion affects the greatest number of structures such as building, electronic equipment during fabrication, packing and shipment. Uniform corrosion is also the easiest to predict corrosion rates, analyze corrosion type, to establish preventive measures and maintenance. Preventive techniques include inhibition, painting (coatings), cathodic or anodic protection. The service life of the affected component can normally be estimated with a reasonable catastrophic failures and degree of accuracy failure can be avoided. Uniform corrosion can be divided into the electrochemical attack or environmental conditional such as atmospheric corrosion, high-temperature (gaseous) corrosion, aqueous corrosion, galvanic corrosion, stray-current corrosion, molten salt corrosion, biological corrosion, and liquid-metal corrosion. Localized corrosion, such as erosion corrosion, pitting corrosion, crevice corrosion, selective leaching, stress-corrosion cracking (SCC) and intergranular corrosion, and act on a small portion of a component. The rate of localized corrosion in terms magnitude larger than that of even corrosion. Evidence of localized corrosion, by its virtue of its physical size and location, it is often difficult to detect. These factors combine to create localized corrosion mechanisms insidious. If undetected, they can lead to catastrophic system failures. Furthermore, Corrosion failure in semiconductor devices and electronic system market can also be studied according to regional bifurcations such as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa and South America. Additionally, the Corrosion failure in semiconductor devices and electronic system material and devices are growing in Asia Pacific region due to the development in industrial sector and power electronic project. Moreover, with the feeling of enchanting experience, increase in demand and growth of technological advancement are witnessing to match the requirements of the corrosion failure in electronic and semiconductor, which is expected to positively support the growth of market during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025.
Many players are involved in manufacturing Corrosion failure in semiconductor devices and electronic system device some of the key players in the market are Fairchild Semiconductor, Cree Incorporated, Infineon Technologies Ag, Norstel AB, Renesas Electronics Corporation, Microsemi Corporation, ROHM Co Ltd, STMicroelectronics, Toshiba Corporation and United Microelectronics Corporation.
