Chip-Off Forensics 2.0

The Teel Tech Advanced Chip-Off 2.0 Forensics training with certification provides students with a comprehensive education in performing forensics on the BGA memory chips used in today’s mobile devices.


This five-day class provides students with the skills required to properly remove a BGA memory chip from a mobile device, prepare the memory for a read, and use chip-reading equipment to acquire the data.

Students will spend 2.5 days understanding the structure of devices and best practices to prevent damage to a chip during removal and preparation. Understanding the difference between memory structures -from a mobile device, to tablet, to SSD hard drive – and how chip-off can be utilized to acquire data from a growing number of devices – the class enables examiners to get a handle on the growing trend of BGA memory use.

In the chip-reading portion of the class, students will learn the fundamentals of memory structure and how to utilize the tools available to read the memory off the chip. Students will get a complete hands-on experience beginning with a cell phone or an IOT device loaded with data, and ending with the raw data acquired from the removed and read the chip. The processes taught in this class can be applied to many types of devices like Cell Phones, Infotainment systems and IOT devices. Students will get a complete hands-on experience beginning with an intact BlackBerry device loaded with data, and ending with the raw data acquired from the removed and read the chip. Once the data is acquired, an education on how to best apply today’s tools and other techniques to decode the data follows. Students taking the Chip-off technique should possess advanced skills in data analysis and be comfortable working with raw data at the post-acquisition phase of the course.


Students taking the Chip-off technique should possess advanced skills in data analysis and be comfortable working with raw data at the post-acquisition phase of the course.
