Click to view contentIC-CAP comes with a powerful library of transforms and examples to help with model parameter extraction but when implementing custom analysis routines, it is sometimes necessary to use Python with external Python libraries like Numpy or SciPy for manipulating your measured data. Numpy, in particular, has a rich set of numerical processing… (Show more)

Click to view contentIn my previous post, I showed you the "all-in-one" method for adding your Verilog-A models to ADS. In this post, I'll show you another method called "shared library." It's a bit more work to set up, but it saves time in the long run because it avoids duplication of effort in each new project. If you give a project workspace to a colleague you have… (Show more)

Click to view contentIn my previous post, I showed you how to create the Verilog-A code for a component model. In this post I'll show you how to import that code into ADS. If you don't have access to ADS or you're not familiar with it, I suggest you read our Quick Start Guide first.   There are two strategies for adding component models to an ADS workspace, let's… (Show more)

Click to view contentVerilog-AMS and VHDL-AMS are hardware description languages, capable of describing mixed-signal (i.e. analog and digital) hardware. In this series of postings, we’ll be talking about Verilog-A (i.e. the officially defined subset of Verilog-AMS that supports analog) and “VHDL-A” (not officially defined, but defined here as "the parts of VHDL-AMS… (Show more)

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)
