acq_ex03 : Measurement Setup Using Variables
Requires: Utmost IV, SmartSpice, SmartView
Minimum Versions: Utmost IV 1.10.6.R, SmartSpice 4.10.6.R, SmartView 2.28.2.R
This example describes how to define a measurement setup which includes a
variable and then how to measure a dataset using this setup. For demo
purposes, the example will measure or more correctly acquire the dataset
using simulation mode, rather than using measurement mode.
The project file
for this example should be loaded into your database. When opened, the
project will look as shown in
The measurement setup from this example is shown in
. Note that the stop value for the gate voltage sweep is not defined
using a numeric value, but is defined as a variable name vd_max. This
variable name corresponds to a variable which is defined in this project
as shown in
When the measurement sequence is run, the value of this variable is used
to specify the stop value for the gate voltage sweep. The measured data
with this stop value as shown in
is then automatically stored in the database.
The use of variables in this way can be used to specify generic measurement
setups which can be used for multiple technologies simply by changing the
value of the project variables.
