... between system level, board level, and individual component level failure analysis is slowly disappearing. In order to localize the initial defect area, prepare the sample for root cause analysis, and image the exact root cause, the overall functionality has to be maintained during the process. This leads...

Just as the customer of an analysis can’t resolve a problem until the root cause is established, the operational efficiency of the FA organization can’t improve until we know where the root cause defects are. We must, in effect, failure analyze the FA process. External to the FA...
