TAMTAMS Guide

Guide for User

This page wants to explain to a new user how a simple analysis can be performed using TAMTAMS Web.

A  Familiarize with the tool

Take a few moments to familiarize yourself with the TAMTAMS workspace (Figure - 1). You'll use the menu and input-output areas identified in the window below throughout the rest of this tutorial.

The "Contact Us" link opens in the input-output area contact information about the service.
In order to start an analysis, you must be logged in, if you don't have an account, just click the "Register" link and fill up the form (Figure - 4 ). If the registration succeeds, you will be redirected to the login page where you can now enter username and password.

To log out, just click the "Log out" link. "Test mode" and "Test files" functionalities are explained in the section A.2 of the complete documentation.

B  First analysis

In order to do an analysis, you have to press the "Start Analysis" link. The first required choice (Figure - 9) is if you want to do a device-to-system analysis or an extra analysis.
figure/basic_analysis/Schermata1_TAMTAMS_Web_start_ananlysis.png
Figure 9: Analysis choice page


You can notify that positioning the mouse pointer over a possible choice, a textual help appears on the right of the link.
Let's now continue with a device-to-system analysis by clicking on it. The next page (Figure - 10) shows two navigation buttons, "Back" and "Next" and a link which allows you to change system parameters.
figure/basic_analysis/Schermata2_TAMTAMS_Web_analysis_option.png
Figure 10: Analysis options page


For the first analysis just press "Next". In this page (Figure - 11) you are able to choice one or more technologies on which performs the analysis.
To select a technology just choose from the drop-down menu; to add more then one technology press the button "Add Technology".
It is also possible to use rapid buttons in order to immediately performs an analysis on all the technology family (HP, LOP or LSTP) of the specific technology type (BULK or SOI so far).
figure/basic_analysis/Schermata3_TAMTAMS_Web_technology.png
Figure 11: Technology choice page


Here, you can also get more information about a selected technology by clicking on the "?" button, or edit parameters of the selected technology clicking on the "Edit" button on the right of the drop-down menu.

Select the HP65 from the drop-down menu and click on the next button.
The module selection page (Figure - 12) shows a grouped list of possible types of parameters to analyse.
figure/basic_analysis/Schermata4_TAMTAMS_Web_module_selction.png
Figure 12: Module selection page


For this analysis, select the "Ion" under the "Device Level" group and press "Next".
The next page (Figure - 13) shows a drop-down menu with the available models to use.
In order to compare different models it is possible to add one or more models clicking "Add Ion Model".
As in the Technology section, the "?" button opens a little help on the selected model.
figure/basic_analysis/Schermata5_TAMTAMS_Web_model_selection.png
Figure 13: Module selection page


Now, select the "Ion_mas.m" and press "Next".
The dependencies page (Figure - 14) shows zero or more drop-down menus for each previous model selected.
The dependencies models generate outputs used by the hierarchically higher models of the current analysis.
In this case two drop-down menus appear, which means that the Ion analysis requires the computation of two different models before the execution of the chosen ion model.
figure/basic_analysis/Schermata6_TAMTAMS_Web_dependencies.png
Figure 14: Dependencies selection page


Select the "vth_gamba_puglia.m", "mobility_mas.m" and press "Next".
In the output selection page (Figure - 15) you can choose the expected output.
There are two main options: print text results and show graphical results.
In the first case, the textual output will be printed on the input-output section, in the second case the output is represented with one or more picture. If the show graphical results is selected, it is also possible to check the Overlap plots option which, if more than one model are selected, draw in an unique graph all results.
figure/basic_analysis/Schermata7_TAMTAMS_Web_output.png
Figure 15: Output selection page


Choose Print text results and press "Next".
In the output page (Figure - 16) you can find two different sections: the analysis tree and the effective model output.
The analysis tree is a navigable tree which recall the current analysis history with all the done selections. Clicking on the different elements of the tree, the documentation of the selected element is shown in a new browser page (or tab).
The effective model output, which is different depending on the chosen analysis type, is shown just below the analysis tree.

Figure 16: Output page


In this exaple you can see the resulting Ion_n and Ion_p currents.
The below picture (Figure - 17) is an example of graphical output on the analysis of the model Ion_mas.m (using the dependencies of this tutorial) on all the BULK HP technologies.

It is possible to scroll different images using the "Up" and "Down" buttons.

C  Parametric Analysis

TAMTAMS WEB workspace give you also the possibility to perform parametric analysis. This kind of analysis can be divided in two different types: Technology Parametric Analysis and System Parametric Analysis, depending on the nature of the selected parameter that you want to vary.

C.1  Technology Parametric Analysis

A parametric analysis1 on technology values can be set on the first technology2 of the technology selection page: select a technology and click the edit button on the right of the drop-down menu (Figure - 18).
figure/parametric_analysis_technology/Schermata3_TAMTAMS_Web_tech_sel.png
Figure 18: Technology selection page
Now you should visualize the following popup windows:

Figure 19: Edit parameters page
figure/parametric_analysis_technology/Schermata4_TAMTAM_Web_param2.png
Figure 20: Edit parameters save custom values

In this page you can modify any of displayed parameters and perform a parametric analysis on a specific variable3.

It is possible to save a set of custom parameters by checking the "Save Technology" box and specifying a technology name (Figure - B.20).
In order to perform a parametric analysis just click the Param. analysis button of the chosen parameter: the pop-up form below should appear (Figure - 21).
figure/parametric_analysis_technology/Schermata5_TAMTAM_Web_set_param.png
Figure 21: Parametric analysis input form

Now enter the minimum value of the chosen parameter, the maximum value of the chosen parameter and the number of steps you need and click "OK". Press "Cancel" if you have selected the wrong parameter.
At this point press "OK", the current pop-up windows will be closed in 3 seconds.

From now on you are able to continue a standard device-to-system analysis following the steps shown in the B section.

C.2  System Parametric Analysis

A parametric analysis4 on system values can be set on the analysis option page (Figure - 22) by clicking the "Edit system parameters" link.
figure/parametric_analysis_technology/Schermata2_TAMTAMS_Web_analysis_option.png
Figure 22: Analysis options page
Now you should visualize the following popup windows:

Figure 23: Edit system parameters page
figure/parametric_analysis_system/Schermata3_TAMTAMS_Web_param2.png
Figure 24: Edit parameters save custom values

In this page you can modify any of displayed parameters and perform a parametric analysis on a specific variable5.

It is possible to save a set of custom system parameters by checking the "Save setup" box and specifying a setup name (Figure - 24).
In order to perform a parametric analysis just click the Param. analysis button of the chosen parameter: the pop-up form below should appear (Figure - 25).
figure/parametric_analysis_system/Schermata4_TAMTAMS_Web_set_param.png
Figure 25: Parametric analysis input form

Now enter the minimum value of the chosen parameter, the maximum value of the chosen parameter and the number of steps you need and click "OK". Press "Cancel" if you have selected the wrong parameter.
At this point press "OK", the current pop-up windows will be closed in 3 seconds.

From now on you are able to continue a standard device-to-system analysis following the steps shown in the B.2 section.

Footnotes:

1Only one parametric analysis at time can be performed.
2Only the "Technology 1" can be used for a technology parametric analysis.
3The parametric analysis can be done only on one parameter at time.
4Only one parametric analysis at time can be performed.
5The parametric analysis can be done only on one parameter at time.
