Detailed View of a Memory Chip

Advanced Forensic Chip-Off Examinations – BlackBerry 9900, 9320, Samsung Galaxy, Moto G, BlackBerry Models & Android and many more – Examined on a daily basis to extract hidden and protected evidential case data

Data from some phones cannot be extracted by ‘regular’ means such as PIN/Password protected BlackBerry’s, Pattern protected Android devices, broken & damaged or smashed mobile phones.

Chip-off is a process we have perfected over the years which uses a number of tools and techniques to access and decode the data that is essential to a lot of criminal cases.

This is particularly useful when it comes to recovering case evidence from pin-locked or password protected BlackBerry devices (including the 9320 and 9900 models to recover deleted data) and damaged SSD (Solid State Hard-Drives) & USB Flash drives.
