     Device Characterization Lab
    This lab, equipped with high performance LCR meters and Semiconductor Parameter Analyzers, is mainly devoted to the characterization of passive and semiconductor devices. It also has a Climatic Chamber for testing systems and devices at temperatures ranging from -70ºC to 180ºC, and a Probe Station for acquiring internal signals both from already packaged circuits and directly form on-wafer circuits at frequencies of up to 1 GHz.

  Radiofrequency Lab
  Apart from the general radiofrequency and microwave instrumentation for measuring frequencies of up to 26 GHz, this lab is also equipped with an Anechoic Chamber. The facility, capable of measuring directivity, sensitivity and radiation patterns, etc. for low gain antennas at frequencies ranging between 700 MHz and 18 GHz, provides a powerful tool for designing devices over a wide range of RFs. An RF Cascade Microtech Probe Station with on-wafer and on-PCB test capability is also available in the lab.

   Pulsed Laser Lab
    This laboratory is devoted to the study of the single-event effects (SEEs) produced by high energy particles in semiconductor devices and circuits. To study these effects, single-photon techniques and 1064-nm wavelengths are used, both of which are very suitable analyzing SEEs in medical, nuclear and space-related applications.

  ATE Agilent 93000
    The principal piece of equipment in this lab is the Agilent 93000 C200e SOC Test System. It is mainly used here as a prototype test unit, although it is very capable of testing a huge number of samples simultaneously. Using the system in this way, the IMSE technical staff has acquired sufficient expertise to be able to offer external consultation services (technical support and training) on how this equipment can be used to design test boards for the implementation and debugging of test procedures in both analog and digital domains.

    Packaging Workshop
    This room is devoted to bonding chip and package. It has all the required resources necessary to meet the challenges posed by deep-submicron technologies, allowing connections with pitch sizes as low as 50 µm. This workshop also features two semi-automatic ultrasound micro-soldering machines, with thread diameters of up to 17 µm, for ball-bonding and wedge-bonding. To verify the quality of connections, there is also a micro-soldering test system for evaluating thread-resistance and solder ball shear. The lab also has two semiconductor storage units for keeping ICs at optimal temperatures and levels of humidity.

  Complex Systems Workshop
    This lab was designed to accommodate those systems which, due to either their size or their special characteristics, require greater space or an isolated environment. This workshop also has a hazardous chemicals cabinet and a security cabinet in which to store these products.
