Abstract
IBM Research has developed a time resolved imaging technique, Picosecond Imaging Circuit Analysis (PICA), which uses single photon events to analyze signals in modern microprocessors on a picosecond time scale. This paper will describe the experimental setup as well as the data management software. A case study of a particularly hard debug problem on a state of the art microprocessor will demonstrate the application of the PICA method.
