Possible reliability failure mechanisms on mixed-signal IC are reviewed and categorized. Based on the nature of reliability and low DPPM failures on mixed signal IC, an analysis flow is proposed including identification of individual failure mechanisms, extraction of the systematic problems, and implementation of corrective actions. Finally, a case of successful isolation of a specific defect without common electrical signature on mixed-signal devices is presented.
