Lock-in-thermography; non-destructive localization

This paper handles with the topic of non-destructive localization of electrical defects in fully packaged and complex devices using the application of Lock-in-Thermography (LIT). It will be shown that inner electrical defects like shorts and resistive opens can be found by thermal imaging of the device surface. The paper will explain the operational principle of the LIT and the resulting opportunity of 3-dimensional localization of inner defects by measuring the phase shift between the electrical excitation and the thermal response at the device surface using LIT. Furthermore, the essential influence of the Lock-in-frequency for optimization of spatial resolution and sensitivity will be discussed.
