    Thermal phenomena occurring along test execution at the final stages of the manufacturing flow are considered as a significant issue for several reasons, including dramatic effects like circuit damage that is leading to yield loss. This paper tries to redeem those bad guys in order to exploit them to improve the test quality, reducing the overall test cost without affecting the yield.
