Recommended Modeling Configurations for Device Modeling

Device Modeling using IC-CAP

The tables below contain recommended instrument configurations for device modeling using Keysight EEsof EDA's IC-CAP parameter extraction and device modeling software.

Each configuration includes a performance network analyzer (PNA) for the chosen frequency range and bias networks for combining the DC and RF signals and making standard Kelvin measurements. The DC-subsystem includes the Keysight 4156C or E5270B DC source/monitor for highly precision DC measurements.

Instrument and Hardware Details

 

In addition to the hardware listed above, refer to the information below on Keysight 11612T/V-Kxx High-Frequency Bias Networks.

Note: All of the Block Diagram and Setup files in the tables below consist of more than one Microsoft® PowerPoint slide. To advance or go back within the slide set, click with the left-hand mouse button on the arrows in the bottom left-hand corner of each slide. Material Lists are provided in Microsoft Excel or Word format.

Pulsed Characterization

Keysight Technologies recommends Auriga Measurement Systems for integrated pulsed-characterization systems. Keysight IC-CAP Parameter Extraction and Device Modeling Software can be integrated with Auriga test systems. For more information, refer to Auriga Measurement Systems, LLC. 

The Auriga pulsed-bias/pulsed-RF solution replaces the discontinued Keysight 85124A Pulsed Modeling System.
