MEMS samples, with their relatively large size and weight, present a unique challenge to the failure analyst as they also included thin films and microstructures used in conventional integrated circuits. This paper describes how to accommodate the large MEMS structures without skimping on the microanalyses needed to get to the root cause. Investigations of tuning folk gyroscopes were used to demonstrate these new techniques.
