In this eight-day class, students learn the skills required to successfully perform memory acquisitions using the JTAG and using Advanced BGA Chip-off Techniques. The comprehensive course enables examiners to gain the essential knowledge of the practice and plenty of hands-on time working with devices.
The comprehensive course enables examiners to gain the essential knowledge of the practice and plenty of hands-on time working with devices. Students are taught the skills to confidently access the inner-workings and device memory in a non-destructive way. In the course, examiners engage in how to utilize JTAG tools to access the memory of devices and acquire the data. Providing the necessary education into memory and JTAG configurations and access techniques, the JTAG component enables examiners to learn and practice on today’s devices using the latest tools.
JTAG Course Components
The class provides proper training in disassembly and reassembly of a working device, so that the JTAG connectors can be accessed, and soldered to, if necessary.
Students gain an understanding of device structure, and best practices for chip removal and cleaning. With a focus on proper procedures, the class provides the fundamental and necessary skills and understanding to remove chips from the boards with the least opportunity for damage. Students learn how to use the tools and techniques at their disposal to remove chips in the safest fashion using Infrared rework tools and Infrared reflow wave ovens. Students get a complete hands-on experience beginning with intact, password-protected, and in some cases encrypted BlackBerry devices loaded with data, and end with the raw data acquired from the removed chip. Once the data is acquired, an education on how to best apply todays tools and other techniques to decode the data follows. Additionally, chip-off on smartphones and features phones is covered, and chip-off exercises are performed.
Students completing the course are provided with updates to materials and access to the TeelTech database of supported phones/chips for future reference.
We prefer students bring their own laptops whenever possible. If this is not possible, Teel Tech Canada will provide one for you. If you are unable to bring your own laptop, please indicate so on the registration page.
For students bringing a laptop to class, please ensure they meet the following minimum requirements:
