Since the board interconnects, board interposer, and bump locations were not geometrically aligned, isolation of opens through physical cross-sectioning became risky, tedious and lengthy. These constraints were overcome through the use...

..., there is still a limitation to this technique while contacts are still connected to substrate in metal-1/contact/active chain structure. Active Voltage Contrast (AVC) [1, 2] is a good method to overcome this problem, but the major concern is how to mark the failure location in SEM based probing system...
