Teel Tech offers an adapter subscription service that allows you to purchase a set number of adapters up front, and we will overnight you the specific adapter you need based on the evidence phone in your lab.

What’s the difference between the UP828P and the SIREDAs?:

The UP828P has adapters for chips from older phones. SIREDAs do not support older devices. Depending on the phones you are seeing, the SIREDAs may be all you need.
Teel Tech Z3X Kit

If you have invested in JTAG and/or Chip-off, there is little more that is needed.

Even if budget is small, a higher quality solder iron or at the very least, a precision solder tip, is highly recommended.

Because of the fine precision soldering, magnification is important for ISP.  Magnification varies in price and style, be it a Jewelers Loop, Head Visor, USB Pen Microscope, traditional Lab Microscope to high end Inspection Stations.

We will have various types of magnification available for you to try in class and encourage you to find one that you like that fits your budget.
