扩展EasyEXPERT软件测试和表征性能,加强软件测试外壳特性 安捷伦科技今天宣布加强B1500A半导体器件分析仪和EasyEXPERT参数分析软件测试外壳用新型硬件和软件性能,这降低了测试,先进的不易丢失存储器(NVM)单元的表征以及开发下一代半导体设备的时间。 带EasyEXPERT参数分析软件的B1500A将支持两个完全集成的新型高压半导体脉冲发生器组件(HV-SPGU)模块,满足先进的NVM单元评估要求,B1500A成为首个用于实验室和研究的基于仪器的单纯硬件NVM单元测试解决方案。
安捷伦目前为NVM单元评估提供一个完整的脉冲解决方案,从实验室应用(运用B1500A)到生产使用(运用安捷伦4080,4月2日宣布)。用于两个平台的共享技术脉冲模块确保了数据再现性和从产品研发到生产的快速转换。研发先进的NVM仪器的客户一起提供了这些解决方案。 此外,安捷伦科技的B1500A的EasyEXPERT软件性能大大提高,目前支持低漏电绝缘材料表征的准静态电容-电压(QSCV)测量。Desktop EasyEXPERT参数分析软件还支持安捷伦4155B/C 和4156B/C半导体参数分析仪,为用户提供一个统一的参数测试仪器环境。 需要NVM单元写/擦性能的参数表征以确保在产品寿命中的可靠使用,例如,最新的闪存处理具有先进的技术特征,如电荷撷取闪存(CTF)和多层单元闪存(MLC)设计,以及更小的特征尺寸。这些技术进步对于NVM单元特征来说具有更高的精确度。 安捷伦B1500A满足了基于仪器的解决方案的行业需求,这个方案支持现代NVM技术要求,包括MRAM, PRAM, RRAM, NAND 以及NOR Flash,如支持高于20v的电压和脉冲电流精确控制,以及前缘和后缘。带EasyEXPERT 参数分析软件和高压半导体脉冲发生器组件的B1500A设计使用户完成NVM单元耐久性测试的速度比之前的方案快十倍。 “安捷伦的实验和测量方案使我们的客户不断的应对其下一代评估挑战,”安捷伦科技Hachioji半导体测试部门执行副主席兼总经理 Minoru Ebihara说道,“安捷伦B1500A 和EasyEXPERT新扩展的功能提供了评估多种最新机器的功能和性能。现在我们的客户可以通过熟悉的EasyEXPERT参数分析软件环境控制其他安捷伦半导体参数分析仪。” 用于测试不易丢失存储器和MOSFETs的新型硬件模块 增强的安捷伦B1500A支持一个高压半导体脉冲发生器组件HV-SPGU模块和一个先进的HV-SPGU以满足先进的NVM单元评估要求。每个HV-SPGU的每个模块有两个通道,B1500A中最多可安装五个模块。每个模块支持+/- 40 V输出(80 V 峰-峰)脉冲性能,升降时间为20毫微秒,2 mV的脉冲电压精度。此外,先进的HV-SPGU支持简单编程的综合波形发生特性,以及每个通道上的奇次脉冲和开放状态脉冲性能。HV-SPGU的行业领先脉冲电流精确度保证了可靠的MLC存储器评估。 完整的单纯硬件参数测试解决方案 获奖的EasyEXPERT参数分析软件最新版本EasyEXPERT 3.0包括很多新的特性,提高B1500A参数测量性能,执行多种测量更简单:从DC IV曲线测量 到QSCV测量到5 MHz CV测量都在一个单一的设备中完成。EasyEXPERT 3.0运用B1500A 的SMU资源支持QSCV测量。当与B1500A多频电容测量组件结合使用时,B1500A 成为唯一提供电容-电压测量(从QSCV 到 5 MHz)的设备,B1500A多频电容测量组件支持1 kHz 到 5 MHz的电容-电压(CV)测量。 EasyEXPERT 3.0软件包括一个直接控制型模式,允许用户生成能直接将EasyEXPERT分析软件用户界面的安捷伦FLEX命令发送到B1500A的应用测试,这使用户可以使用B1500A的所有测量性能,甚至可以使用那些不能直接通过EasyEXPERT Classic Test方法的测量性能。 EasyEXPERT 3.0还支持快速平行动态负偏置温度不稳定性(NBTI)测试。NBTI测试是现代半导体工艺的一个关键的可靠性测试。安捷伦是首个在单纯硬件解决方案中提供该性能的公司。 2007年6月,安捷伦将推出一款功能强大的Desktop EasyEXPERT参数仪器测试软件新版本,提供免费下载新版本使用户能够在外部PC上控制B1500A。Desktop EasyEXPERT 3.0还将提供安捷伦4155B, 4156B, 4155C,以及4156C半导体参数分析仪基本控制。这将使目前使用这些仪器的用户提高生产力,而生产力的提高得益于EasyEXPERT测试外壳软件,使用B1500A,客户还将创造一个统一的基于仪器的参数测试环境。 美国价格和购买 EasyEXPERT 3.0软件和B1500A将在下月开始出货,现有的B1500A用户可以下载,Desktop EasyEXPERT软件新版本可以免费下载,安捷伦将于4月1日起开始接收B1500的新型HV-SPGU模块的订单,12月开始首次出货。HV-SPGU模块价格在$10,000到 $20,000之间。 original text [COLOR=#708090]Agilent Technologies Reduces Endurance Test Time for Non-Volatile Memory Cells from Days to Hours Enhanced Software Test Shell with EasyEXPERT Expands Testing, Characterization Capabilities SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 17, 2007 Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced new hardware and software capabilities for its B1500A Semiconductor Device Analyzer and EasyEXPERT software test shell, which reduce the time required for the testing and characterization of advanced non-volatile memory (NVM) cells and other next-generation semiconductor devices. The B1500A with EasyEXPERT will support two new, fully integrated high-voltage semiconductor pulse generator unit (HV-SPGU) modules to meet the requirements of advanced NVM cell evaluation, making it the first instrument-based single-box NVM cell testing solution specifically for laboratory and research use. Agilent now offers a complete range of pulse solutions for NVM cell evaluation, from laboratory use (using the B1500A) to production use (using the Agilent 4080, announced on April 2). Pulse modules with shared technology for both platforms ensure data reproducibility and a quick transition from development to production. These solutions have been created in collaboration with customers who are developing advanced NVM devices. In addition, the Agilent B1500A‘s EasyEXPERT software has been enhanced significantly and now supports quasi-static capacitance versus voltage (QSCV) measurement for characterization of low-leakage dielectric materials. The desktop version of EasyEXPERT also has been expanded to support the Agilent 4155B/C and 4156B/C Semiconductor Parameter Analyzers, providing users a unified instrument environment for parametric test. Parametric characterization of NVM cell write/erase performance is necessary to ensure reliable operation over product lifetimes. For example, the latest flash-memory processes feature advanced technologies, such as charge trap flash (CTF) and multi-level cell (MLC) designs, as well as ever-smaller feature sizes. These advancements necessitate more precise evaluation of the NVM cell characteristics. The Agilent B1500A meets the industry‘s need for an instrument-based solution that supports modern NVM technology requirements, including MRAM, PRAM, RRAM, NAND and NOR Flash, such as support for voltages greater than 20 V and precise control over the pulse level, and leading and trailing edges. The B1500A with EasyEXPERT and the HV-SPGU is designed to allow users to complete endurance testing of NVM cells up to 10 times faster than with previous solutions. Agilent‘s test and measurement solutions continually evolve to allow our customers to meet their next-generation evaluation challenges," said Minoru Ebihara, vice president and general manager of Agilent‘s Hachioji Semiconductor Test Division. "The newly expanded capabilities of the Agilent B1500A and EasyEXPERT provide the functionality and performance required to evaluate a variety of the latest devices. Now our customers can control other Agilent semiconductor parameter analyzers from the familiar EasyEXPERT environment." New Hardware Modules for Testing Non-Volatile Memory and MOSFETs The enhanced Agilent B1500A supports a HV-SPGU module and an advanced HV-SPGU to meet the requirements of advanced NVM cell evaluation. Each HV-SPGU has two channels per module, and up to five modules can be installed in the B1500A. Each module supports +/- 40 V output (80 V peak-to-peak) pulse capability, with rise and fall times of 20 ns and 2 mV pulse voltage resolution. In addition, the advanced HV-SPGU supports features such as complex waveform generation with easy programming, as well as three-level pulse and open-state pulse capability on each channel. The HV-SPGU‘s industry-leading pulse level accuracy ensures reliable MLC memory evaluation. Complete Single-Box Parametric Test Solution The latest version of the award-winning EasyEXPERT software, EasyEXPERT 3.0 includes several new features to increase the B1500A‘s parametric measurement capabilities, making it easy to conduct a full range of measurement types, from DC IV to QSCV to 5 MHz CV measurement, all with a single instrument. EasyEXPERT 3.0 supports QSCV measurement using the SMU resources on the B1500A. When used in conjunction with the B1500A multi-frequency capacitance measurement unit, which supports capacitance versus voltage (CV) measurement from 1 kHz to 5 MHz, the B1500A becomes the only instrument to offer CV measurement range coverage from QSCV to 5 MHz. EasyEXPERT 3.0 software includes a Direct Control mode, which allows users to create application tests that can send Agilent FLEX commands directly to the B1500A from the EasyEXPERT user interface. This gives users access to all of the measurement capabilities of the B1500A, even those not directly available through the EasyEXPERT Classic Test mode. EasyEXPERT 3.0 has also been enhanced to support fast parallel on-the-fly NBTI (negative bias temperature instability) testing. NBTI testing is a critical reliability test for modern semiconductor processes. Agilent is the first company to offer this capability in a single-box solution. In June 2007, Agilent will offer a new version of its powerful desktop EasyEXPERT parametric instrument test software, which allows users to control the B1500A from an external PC, for free download. The Desktop EasyEXPERT 3.0 will also provide basic control of the Agilent 4155B, 4156B, 4155C, and 4156C Semiconductor Parameter Analyzers. This will allow current users of these instruments to gain the productivity benefits inherent in the EasyEXPERT test shell software and to create a unified instrument-based parametric test environment with the B1500A. U.S. Pricing and Availability EasyEXPERT 3.0 software will start shipping with the B1500A next month, with a downloadable version available for current B1500A users and the new version of Desktop EasyEXPERT available for free download. Agilent will begin accepting orders for the new HV-SPGU modules for the B1500 on July 1, and first shipments will occur in December. The HV-SPGU modules will range in price from $10,000 to $20,000.[/COLOR]
