Electronics spans a number of devices, their configurations, and properties. A challenge is to identify those electronic subjects essential for failure analysis. This article reviews the normal operation and terminal characteristics of MOSFET. It describes the electronic behavior of bridges, opens, and parametric delay defects, which is essential for understanding the symptoms of a failing IC. These electronic principles are then applied to a CMOS failure analysis technique using a power supply signature analysis.
