Logical-to-physical device navigation for failure analysis is often used to drive physical probers and focused ion beam tools. Traditional methods of creating navigation data rely upon the use of time consuming Layout-versus-Schematic (LVS) based methods. By using existing place-and-route data, full cross-linked navigation between schematic and physical layout may be achieved in a fraction of the time that it takes for the LVS methods to be used. Place-and-route data offers significantly more information to the analyst than LVS based data.
