This paper describes the application of lock-in thermography (LIT) for flip-chip package-level failure analysis. LIT successfully detected and localized short failures related to both die/C4 bumps and package defects inside the organic substrate. The detail sample preparation to create short defects at different layers, LIT fault isolation methodology, and case studies performed with LIT are also presented in this paper.
