Click to view content    IC-CAP comes with a powerful API for accessing internal variables and data structures. In what follows, we will illustrate an example of accessing a Setup's Inputs and Outputs to obtain parameter values for the bias conditions for our custom Python measurement routines using the TableVar object.   What might be a typical approach? When… (Show more)

Click to view contentHave you ever found yourself in a situation where the characterization software did not support the hardware you were trying to use?  Your tests may be complex, where the measurement conditions of your next data point depend on previous measurement results.  I have found that using Python integrated with the IC-CAP software leads to a powerful and… (Show more)

I'm sure most of you have heard about WBG semiconductors recently; specifically Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Gallium Nitride (GaN).  The primary, but not exclusive, context was probably related to Power Electronics.  So let's explore at a high level why this technology is increasingly getting more and more attention in the Industry.  It basically… (Show more)

Click to view contentWelcome to Tim’s Blackboard! This is the place to find discussions on interesting topics related to signal integrity and power integrity.   This week on Tim’s Blackboard, I will resolve the arrival time inconsistency shown in the previous post.     IntroductionLast week, we sent an impulse through a section of 50-Ohm, 6-inch microstrip… (Show more)

Click to view contentPython is a programming language that lets you work quickly and integrate systems more effectively. It’s been used in many areas such as Statistical Analysis, or Artificial Intelligence; and it is also very useful in Device Modeling. Today we are going to introduce the Python integration with Keysight IC-CAP device modeling platform (version 2013… (Show more)

Click to view contentWhile IC-CAP is equipped with a powerful library of transforms and examples for performing model parameter extraction, we may extend this power using the built-in Python support in IC-CAP to access external Python libraries, especially when developing new behavioral models or implementing custom analysis routines.   In my previous article, I… (Show more)

Click to view contentNegative Bias Temperature Instability (NBTI) refers to a positive shift in threshold voltage in CMOS devices, hastened by negative gate voltages and high temperatures.  Resulting in lower device currents and lower transconductances, NBTI presents a device reliability concern, especially as gate-oxides become thinner and as device geometries… (Show more)
