April 4, 2022 - Vista, California - Axiom Test Equipment, an electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new blog post entitled "Semiconductor Measurements Characterize Devices and Materials" that informs people on how semiconductor testing can be conducted. Semiconductors are essential to modern electronics and can be found in almost all electrical products throughout many industries. They come in many forms, with diodes, optocouplers, rectifiers, and transistors among discrete devices. Because semiconductor testing covers such a variety of devices under test (DUTs), it involves many different measurements and, depending on the DUT, often many different test units to perform the measurements.

Gaining a better understanding of a semiconductor or the material it is fabricated on requires evaluating it under different operating conditions, such as different voltage (V), current (I), and power levels. In some cases, testing is performed to find a semiconductor's safe operating levels as well as its stress levels, where it begins to suffer degraded performance.

Semiconductor testing can involve many different types of measurements to characterize a complex IC or the wafer upon which it is fabricated, but for characterizing a simpler device such as a diode, testing starts with a basic semiconductor parameter analyzer capable of tracking I and V responses, such as the Keysight 4155C Semiconductor Parameter Analyzer.

Semiconductor Measurements Characterize Devices and Materials

Semiconductor testing usually means active devices and it often refers to integrated circuits (ICs). But it can also apply to discrete devices, such as high-power transistors, and characterizing semiconductor materials such as substrates and wafers. Because semiconductor testing covers such a variety of devices under test (DUTs), it involves many different measurements and, depending on the DUT, often many different test units to perform the measurements.

What kind of measurements are part of semiconductor testing? Gaining a better understanding of a semiconductor or the material it is fabricated on requires evaluating it under different operating conditions, such as different voltage (V), current (I), and power levels. In some cases, testing is performed to find a semiconductor's safe operating levels as well as its stress levels, where it begins to suffer degraded performance. Essential semiconductor testing involves monitoring of a DUT's I and V responses and requires test equipment with tight control over wide ranges of I and V and often other electrical parameters, such as capacitance (C) and impedance.

Semiconductors are essential to modern electronics and can be found in almost all electrical products throughout many industries, including aerospace, commercial, industrial, medical, and military markets. They come in many forms, with diodes, optocouplers, rectifiers, and transistors among discrete devices. Semiconductors are based on many different substrate materials, including the silicon, silicon carbide (SiC), gallium arsenide (GaAs), and gallium nitride (GaN) substrates that form many types of ICs such as amplifiers and digital logic devices. Semiconductor testing can involve many different types of measurements to characterize a complex IC or the wafer upon which it is fabricated, but for characterizing a simpler device such as a diode, testing starts with a basic semiconductor parameter analyzer capable of tracking I and V responses, such as the Keysight 4155C Semiconductor Parameter Analyzer.
