... these problems would be direct docking. Unfortunately, it is quite impossible to get a complete set of defect localization tools all compatible with direct docking. In addition, a tester can handle only one IC at a time. The tester cost makes it complicated to immobilize it for days just for one device...

... activation and reproduction of defects is required. In the case of a direct short between pin and Vcc/Vss, the defect can be activated by forcing current or voltage into the pin as shown in case 1 in Fig 1. A more complicated setup is required when the short is between two lines of logic circuitry...
