In foregoing chapters the fundamentals of heat propagation laws and analysis tools, in addition to the nature of the heat sources in IC’s and their relation to the presence of failures have been introduced. Use of temperature as a test observable, its advantages and disadvantages as a complementary test procedure and the various methods of temperature measurement have also been presented.
