Automated Parameter Extraction Software for Advanced IGBT Modeling
Allen R. Hefner Jr., Sebastien Bouche
A software package for extracting parameters used in advanced IGBT models is presented. In addition, new model equations and extraction procedures are introduced that more accurately describe a wide range of IGBT types including the recently developed Warp-speed IGBTs. The parameter extraction software package consists of five programs that extract the 20 physical and structural parameters needed in the most recent version of the Hefner IGBT model. Each program has a graphical user interface and uses the IEEE 488 bus to control the measurement instruments. Various algorithms are employed for fitting the IGBT model equations to the data obtained from the measurements. The new software package enables users of the simulation software products to extract model parameters themselves and thus permits the simulation of new IGBT part numbers as soon as they are introduced.
