Telecom & Data Storage Testing

For over 30 years, Atomic Echo Labs has dedicated instrumentation, research, and development efforts to the telecom & data storage industry, helping customers maintain quality and troubleshoot difficult problems. Our scientists and engineers help manufacturers to pursue state-of-the-art R&D, enabling them to produce high reliability data storage products, including magnetic disks and disk drive components, optical disks, flash memory devices and other advanced data storage media and new media types.

Services for telecom & data storage testing

Our vast array of materials testing services, analytical techniques and electronic testing services enable the telecom & data storage industry to evaluate materials, manage their supply chain, develop new products and investigate failures in a timely and cost-effective manner to meet the needs of the industry.

Atomic Echo Labs has supported companies across the telecom & data storage sector in various stages of product development and production. From a teardown and inspection of a disk drive, failure analysis of the magnetic media, to identification and thickness testing of lubricants and additives, our customers have turned to Atomic Echo Labs. 



Atomic Echo Labs offers a comprehensive suite of services for the telecom and data storage industry, meeting the industry’s exacting standards for tight controls of material properties, composition and chemistry. Here are just a few application examples of our data storage testing capabilities:

Failure Analysis

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

Characterization of materials

Atomic Echo Labs offers 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.


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 can solve surface chemistry issues with adhesion and bonding, answer questions regarding surface cleanliness and perform investigations regarding morphology and topography of materials’ surfaces.

Coatings Analysis

We 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.

Electronic System 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 & Environmental

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

We understand the need for first-to-market breakthrough technologies, and 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.
