This paper discusses a failure analysis case study in a highly integrated mixed signal device caused by inductive coupling of on-chip signals. The techniques utilized and the approach to root cause analysis are discussed in depth. The interactions between the device design and failure mechanism are identified in detail. Focus is placed on drawing conclusions from the sum of individual data points, and the discussion provides an analytical path by which similar failures can be isolated and specific device sensitivities can be identified.
