Electro-optical terahertz pulse reflectometry (EOTPR) was introduced last year to isolate faults in advanced IC packages. The EOTPR system provides 10μm accuracy that can be used to non-destructively localize a package-level failure. In this paper, an EOTPR system is used for non-destructive fault isolation and identification for both 2D and 2.5D with TSV structure of flip-chip packages. The experimental results demonstrate higher accuracy of the EOTPR system in determining the distance to defect compared to the traditional time-domain reflectometry (TDR) systems.
