... Abstract In most of the non-destructive electrical fault isolation cases, techniques such as DLS, Photon Emission, LIT, OBIRCH indicate a fault location directly. But relying on just one of these techniques for marginal failure mechanism is not enough for better fault localization. When Failure...
