Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR)

Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) analysis is a technique to approximately isolate a continuity failure with the device package by sending a pulsed signal to the failing pins and then examining the reflection of that pulse. The TDR technique gives analysts a clue where the continuity failure may occur.
