This paper describes the observation of photoemissions from saturated transistors along a connecting path with open defect in the logic array. By exploiting this characteristic phenomenon to distinguish open related issues, we described with 2 case studies using Photon Emission Microscopy, CAD navigation and layout tracing to identify the ‘open’ failure path. Further layout and EBAC analysis are then employed to effectively localize the failure site.
