Consumer Electronics Testing

Consumer electronics testing has been an important part of Atomic Echo Labs for over 30 years, and we offer the most comprehensive suite of testing techniques for characterization of consumer electronics. We understand the need for first-to-market breakthrough technologies, as well as the challenges of maintaining supply chain quality and efficiency from international providers. 

Services for Consumer Electronics Testing

With laboratories located around the world, Atomic Echo Labs scientists have supported customers creating products for consumer electronics such as mobile devices, tablets, computers, wearables, and health tracking devices. Over the years, we’ve earned a reputation worldwide for developing new methods to advance consumer electronics product development and for solving materials-related issues. WE KNOW HOW to pursue intense electronics innovation but still ensure consumer product safety and quality.


Atomic Echo Labs offers a comprehensive suite of services for the consumer electronics industry, meeting the industry’s exacting standards for tight controls of material properties, composition and chemistry. Here are just a few examples of how we can help:

Testing of AR/VR/MR Wearable Devices

Atomic Echo Labs Laboratories has a wide range of experience testing wearable technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and Mixed Reality (VR) for many of our customers. We strive to partner with our customers to support product development, safety, and quality. Our services cover the complete value chain, such as supply chain auditing and quality control by certifying the quality of raw materials supplied, testing of electronic components, investigation of field failures, through to protection of intellectual property.

Additionally, wearable products can come into intimate contact with prolonged consumer exposure. The risk of exposure to chemicals resulting in sensitization and irritation is increased based on the customer experience. We have developed an effective and efficient process for assessing biocompatibility for Consumer Product Safety Commission. Our team of scientists can perform chemical characterization to identify residual chemicals, assess toxicological risk, and provide insight into potential safety issues.


Failure Analysis

Our labs perform failure analysis on both integrated circuits and devices. The failure analysis services range from Level 1 non-destructive examination to Level 3 fault isolation and root cause identification and characterization.

Characterization of Materials

Investigation of materials-related issues includes organic analysis of plastics/polymers, flux, lubricants and solder masks, as well as elemental analysis of wire bonds, bond pads, leads and lead frames.

Sensitizers Consumer Electronics Testing

We use GC/MS, LC/MS, and ICP/MS to determine if any transferred chemicals are skin sensitizers with potential for toxic, allergenic or abrasion concerns.

Elemental Analysis

Inspection of raw materials during key phases of manufacturing can aid in the identification and elimination of unwanted impurities in final products.

Advanced Microscopy

Microscopy techniques are essential to investigate sample micro-structure, morphology, particle size, particle coatings and defects in thin/thick film or bulk substrate samples.

Metallurgical Analysis

We compare“good” vs “bad” samples to evaluate chemical changes by applying a variety of analytical and physical testing techniques

Surface Analysis

Atomic Echo Labs solves surface chemistry issues with adhesion and bonding, answering questions regarding surface cleanliness and investigations regarding morphology and topography of materials’ surfaces

Polymer Characterization

Investigation of materials-related issues includes organic analysis of plastics/polymers, flux, lubricants and solder masks, as well as elemental analysis of wire bonds, bond pads, leads and lead frames.

Coatings Analysis

Atomic Echo Labs scientists have the expertise to solve difficult challenges with coatings such as paints and adhesives. We provide depth-specific distribution measurements and chemical survey characterizations of coatings.

Electronics Testing

Our team offers the engineering expertise to design, develop, test, analyze, and debug the most innovative products using ATE, system-level testing, reliability and IC-level failure analysis.

EMC Testing

We provide end-to-end EMC/EMI testing solutions to evaluate components for use in extreme conditions to help avoid unexpected electromagnetic interference & compatibility compliance issues.

Litigation Support Services

Litigation support services provide scientific expertise, data interpretation, analytical litigation support, or provide an expert witness testimony.

Atomic Echo Labs can collaborate to provide results-driven solutions to the most complex of analytical investigations. Our experienced experts will work with your team to troubleshoot and choose the right material for your application or improve a manufacturing process.
