Teel Technologies Canada has recently partnered with  ACELab in order to offer this 4 day PC-3000 FLASH and MONOLITH Data Recovery Expert training course. Students attending this training will receive in-depth education involving  both Flash and MONOLITH Data recovery techniques, which include topics such as; the organization of information storage in NAND memory based drives, the PC-3000 Flash system, the stages of working on data recovery tasks, and much more.

Below we’ve listed the full course outline. Should you have any questions about this class, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

This is a great class to take if you are trying to be a pro at flash data recovery. loved it!!!!

PRACTICE: At this training seminar you will be taught to solve wide variety of tasks: from
the easiest to very complex and even unusual ones. Each attendee can choose difficulty
level and try to solve this type of task. The technique of drive dismantling, memory chip
unsoldering and their preparation for reading process will be demonstrated at training
The training will take place on the last version of PC-3000 Flash. 1 month of free
Technical Support is provided for PC-3000 Flash for all students who completed
the “Data recovery technologies for NAND based drives” training seminar.

An overview of the different types of monolith drives based on NAND Flash memory

Features & Challenges

  • Evaluation pins, transition holes, traces, including implementation details and sizes.
  • An overview of the tools and methods required for stripping the ceramic layer of the monolith drive.
  • Monolith database, conditions of access,  and searching for pinout.
  • PC-3000 Flash Circuit Board – the universal adapter for working with monolith chips.

Functions & Possibilities

  • An overview of tools, methods and the specific materials needed for monolith chip soldering.
  • Installation of soldered monolith chip onto a Circuit Board adapter.
