In this paper we report on the application field of Dynamic Laser Stimulation (DLS) techniques to Integrated Circuit (IC) analysis. The effects of thermal and photoelectric laser stimulation on ICs are presented. Implementations, practical considerations and applications are presented for techniques based on functional tests like Soft Defect Localization (SDL) and Laser Assisted Device Alteration (LADA). A new methodology, Delay Variation Mapping (DVM), will also be presented and discussed.
