Shaw Terwilliger writes " IBM's found a way to actually photograph the electron flow through CMOS circuits for testing and analysis. PICA works by detecting the very faint light emissions from the individual gates in an integrated circuit. You can download MPEGs of the electricity in motion. They claim this will lead to better chips by shortening the testing process and making it more accurate. Neat stuff, those electrons. "
