Failure Analysis with Fred Femto Field (Part 4)
## Failure Analysis: EOFM and EOP  ##
###

Hi my dear photons! Long time no see! It's me, **[Fred Femto Field](https://steemit.com/introduceyourself/@heteronimo/the-first-heteronym)**! 

I was spending my holidays in the Quantic world! Passed the New Year's Eve over there, it was gorgeous!

Anyway, I'm back! And I was in the mood to continue our Failure Analysis Series... Today it's about **EOFM** and **EOP**!

In a **DUT (Device Under Test)** showing timing fails or propagation delay issues, can be quite challenging to do fault localization using traditional techniques like **Emission Microscopy (EMMI)** or **Optical Beam Induced Resistance Change (OBIRCH)**. Therefore, a technique which provides more dynamic information is necessary for rapid block localization to minimize the amount of probing required. By that, **Electro Optical Frequency Mapping (EOFM)** and **Electro Optical Probing (EOP)** could measure the transistors switching and visualize it as an image by operating the transistors at specific frequency which could possibly be observed in the circuit.

**EOP/EOFM** techniques are laser based optical tools that do not contact the device directly but are able to measure the electrical activity through the backside silicon surface. A 1340 nm infrared laser irradiates the active zone of the **DUT** and the main resulting effects are either absorption or refraction. The later varies with the voltage level. With the sensitive detection system, this signal can be extracted, and semi-quantitative voltage information can be caught.

**EOP/EOFM** system can observe the reflected light during a transistor’s switch, and measures the frequency at that moment. The **EOFM** picks up the intensity of the signal under a certain frequency and visualizes it as an image. And **EOP** will show a waveform, which could be used for switching signal investigation.

That's  all for today! We aren't still at the end of this series! New posts coming soon!

Cheers from **10<sup>-15</sup>**!!
