Figure 1 shows the hardware components of a complete PD1000A Power Device Measurement System for Advanced Modeling System. Depending on the device characterizations you need to run, you may or may not have all of the test instruments shown. Figure 1 is best printed on an 11x17” paper.Figure 2 on page 10 shows the software components of a complete PD1000A System. The PEMG, ADS, EMPro, and Momentum software are not included and must be purchased separately. Figure 2 is best printed on an 11x17” paper. The PD1000A system consists of two hardware subsystems, all controlled by the PD1000A Control Software:
■ Curve Tracer System (B1506A or B1505A Power Device Analyzer)
-- The curve tracer system provides IV and CV measurements. They “teach” the model how the device reacts under specific current and voltage conditions.
■ S-Parameter Measurement System (E5080A ENA, B2902A SMU, and
Bias-Ts, Test Fixtures, etc.)
-- The S-parameter measurement system measures the frequency response of the device under zero-bias and biased conditions. This “teaches” the model how the device to react in the frequency domain.
The control software automates almost all of the measurement process and creates files that can be loaded into the Keysight Power Electronics Model Generator (PEMG) software. The PEMG software creates the model using the measurement data and the modeling formula chosen. The model can then be used in Keysight’s Advanced Design System, EMPro, or Momentum for precise, real-world simulation.
