Magnetic current imaging is a proven fault-isolation technique. Its unsurpassed sensitivity and resolution coupled with the fact that magnetic fields are unaffected by packaging and die materials make it a valuable FA tool for a wide variety of ICs and devices. This article reviews the basic measurement physics of magnetic current imaging, describes the general implementation, and presents several practical examples of its use.
