Failure Analysis

In the event a failure analysis is needed on a Linear Technology device, please contact your local LTC Sales Representative to initiate the failure analysis process or contact Linear directly at ltcqa@linear.com. All sales support for failure analysis and any associated application assistance will be provided to the customer on a complimentary basis providing the LTC device in question was procured through an LTC authorized sales channel. Recently Linear Technology has received an increasing number of failure analysis requests on products that were not purchased through an authorized LTC distributor, which turned out to be counterfeit parts. Due to this unnecessary failure analysis workload, any failure analysis performed on units purchased through an unauthorized source (e.g.; broker) will incur a per incident fee of $2000 minimum.
