Explanation of Faults


The purpose of this chapter is to give an overview of Carafe's method of fault extraction and to describe in some detail how Carafe extracts each type of fault from circuit layouts. This chapter also describes how Carafe computes the critical area and the weighted probability for each type of fault extracted. In addition, this chapter explains the important limitations of the various fault extractors and how these limitations may affect your results.
