Failures Analysis of Microcircuits

Titu-Marius I. BĂJENESCU
For failure analysis of integrated circuits it is necessary to open and delayer a chip layer by layer in order to find a hidden defect or defects. It is necessary to determine the cause of failure to prevent future occurrence, and/or to improve the performance of the device. Increased circuit densities, smaller feature sizes and ever increasing multilayer technologies have created many challenges for failure analysis engineers.
