A characterization system is presented for evaluating critical functions of a microhotplate-based embedded gas-sensor for system-on-a-chip applications. The system uses a virtual instrument interface to control parts-per-billion (ppb) gas concentration levels and microhotplate temperature control registers and acquires temperature and gas sensor data. The system is easily reconfigurable to measure chips with various combinations of analog and digital inputs and outputs.
