Soft defect localization techniques based on laser stimulation have become key techniques for a wide range of FA/debug issues. In this paper, we demonstrate the ability of these techniques to solve critical design issue in mixed-mode device for automotive application which includes analog, logic, RF and power. Utilizing a wide range of laser stimulation techniques, we have determined the most efficient approach for this device to achieve the shortest cycle time. We have established a clear link between fault isolation by laser stimulation techniques and the abnormal behavior of the device with relevant and complete simulation at transistor level.
