The HCU2000 instrument can provide up to DC 2000A pulse current per channel. The SOA Manager is a tool integrated within a number of HCU2000 APIs that helps minimize test time or time between pulses when using the HCU2000. The SOA Manager assists in setting rail voltages to the optimal point for a given set of pulses to minimize test time, checks time between pulses, and checks for instantaneous violations of SOA and Droop. However, there are some conditions which will cause a test time impact even with the SOA Manager. Since vrail/current setting, positive/negative current direction and the test order of those item combinations will impact test, we will discuss the parameters to consider to minimize the impact on the test time, and how those parameters affect the voltage/current output with waveform data.
