This article provides a high level overview of high speed analog circuits and associated failure analysis techniques. It discusses the failure modes and mechanisms of voltage reference circuits, high speed op amps, and digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital converters, the fundamental building blocks used to create high speed analog devices. It also explains how to deal with difficulties involving circuit node access, circuit loading, and performance.
