A computer aided design system for integrated circuits is not complete without accurate circuit simulation capabilities. Accurate simulation is not possible without accurate models and model parameters. TECAP2 (Transistor Electrical Characterization and Analysis Program) is a program that greatly simplifies the development of models, the extraction of model parameters from measured data, and the comparison of the effectiveness of various models.
