Abstract : This report details the operation of FETest version 2.0, a software package written at ARL, which allows for automated and manual control of a variety of electrical tests on ferroelectric capacitors used for nonvolatile memory applications. The FETest software, when coupled with the proper electronic test hardware, provides a core set of frequently used tests for evaluating FE thin films for nonvolatile memory applications. These tests include measuring and plotting a hysteresis loop, and performing I-t leakage measurements to analyze the resistivity of FE films. It can also automatically run extended fatigue and retention tests.
