The relationship between the change in transistor operation regions and the fault behavior of a mixed-signal circuit having a bridging fault was investigated. We also discussed determination of transistors to be observed for estimating the fault behavior. These results will be useful for modeling faulty behaviors and analyzing and diagnosing faults in mixed-signal circuits.
