DC Parametric Measure IP

DC Parametric Measure IP is an algorithm IP to measure voltage and current of I/O, RVS, AWG and DGT pins.

By using this IP, the following electrical characteristics for target devices can be measured and evaluated easily.

  • Input current measurement
  • Output current measurement
  • Output voltage measurement
  • Leak current measurement
  • Resistance value measurement
  • Contact test

In addition, by using Multipoint Measurement Plugin(PXCA01-M1040), It is easy to measure and evaluate characteristics such as measurement value fluctuation of multiple measurements / maximum value / minimum value / average value / variation for the above measurement.

  • The following measurements can be made using the DC parametric measurement unit.

ModeMeasurement contents
VSIMApply constant voltage and measure current.
ISVMApply constant current and measure voltage.
MVMMeasure voltage without connecting a constant current source.
  • Can measure the power supply current for the specific operating state by executing pattern.
  • Can measure by opening the pin out relay of the I/O pin. It is possible to reduce the influence of the leakage current of the measurement system.
  • Can measure by applying VIH/VIL voltage to the device pins. For the details,
  • Can turn off the power state of the pins to be measured on measurement timing.
  • Can open the pin out relay of the pins to be measured on measurement timing.
  • Measurement values and judgement results can be stored to variables by interpose processing.
  • Can judge the pattern execution result.
  • Can execute the finalization pattern.
  • Can measure simultaneously up to 4 channels in CX1000D (up to 8 channels in CX1000D S2-LINK) by Simultaneous Measurement Function Plugin for DC Parametric Measure IP.
  • Can apply the arbitrary waveform synchronized with pattern by Arbitrary Waveform Applying Plugin.
  • Can supply the power from external power supply instruments controlled by GPIB by External Power Supply Control Plugin.
  • Cn measure by multiple pattern execution condition in one test item by Multipoint Measurement Plugin. In addition, Can judge statistical values at each measurement point.
  • Can execute the batch files at each timing of the measurement sequence by Batch File Execution Plugin.
  • By connecting the following IPs, it is able to evaluate and analyze the measurement results while changing the measurement condition.

  • Minimized the measurement time by optimizing the measurement sequence.
  • Added the function to execute the finalization pattern.
  • Supported Batch File Execution Plugin(PCXA01-M5009).
  • Fixed an issue that measurement result is 0 when an overflow occurred with Multipoint Measurement Plugin.
  • Fixed an issue that changing values of [(2)Wait] and [(6)Wait] were not reflected correctly.
  • Fixed an issue that caused an error due to an incorrect clamp values when changing [Measure Range] from [32mA Range] / [6mA Range] to [600uA Range] / [60uA Range] / [6uA Range]. When [Measurement range] is [600uA Range] / [60uA Range] / [6uA Range], the correct clamp value (999uA / -999uA) is automatically set to [Positive Clamp / Negative Clamp].

March 13, 20182.01.00
  • Added the function to output the comments and variable values to header of data log.
  • Fixed an issue that an error occurred at execution when [Acquisition Count] was the initial value without editing by using Multipoint Measurement Plugin.
  • Fixed an issue that an error occurred when executing the measurement after address specification was switched from label to variables in [Measurement Table] by using Multipoint Measurement Plugin.
  • Supported External Power Supply Control Plugin R1.02.01.
