The Curve Tracer course addresses the critical role of Curve Tracers and Semiconductor Parameter Analyzers in ensuring the reliability of semiconductor devices. As the complexity of electronic components increases and the tolerance for faults decreases, the proficiency in using these diagnostic tools becomes essential. This course focuses on the practical skills needed to evaluate Input/Output (I/O) structures within the fast-evolving semiconductor landscape, where new materials and designs introduce unpredictable challenges. Despite high industry reliability standards, rapid technological advancements necessitate a deep understanding of these instruments to preempt and diagnose potential failures effectively.

This section describes the use of a Curve Tracer/Semiconductor Parameter Analyzer for Failure Analysis. The material covers the examination of I/O structures and how to operate these instruments.
