Abstract—A GNU Octave – based application for device-level compact model evaluation and parameter extraction has been developed. The applications main features are as follows: experimental I-V data importing, generating input data for different circuit simulation programs, running the simulation program to calculate I-V characteristics of the specified models, calculating model misfit and its sensitivity to selected parameter variation, and the comparison of experimental and simulated characteristics. Measured I-V data stored by different measurement systems are accepted. Circuit simulations may be done with Ngspice, Qucs and LTSpiceIV. Selected aspects of the application are presented and discussed.
