How to Simplify Transistor Testing

May 5, 2020
Read this brief application note to pick up tips on how to make better current-voltage measurements of Field Effect Transistors (FETs).

Learn how to speed up current-voltage testing on FETs and other semiconductor devices.  The test set-up described here saves money because it requires fewer test instruments and enables you to avoid tedious and time consuming test set-up.  And it can be applied across a range of FET tests, including I-V tests such as gate leakage, breakdown voltage, threshold voltage, transfer characteristics, drain current, on-resistance, and more.
