In this paper, a parameter extraction procedure for high-voltage diodes with local lifetime control is proposed. It is designed for use with the physics-based diode model described in Part I, which is capable of simulating diodes with local lifetime control. The parameter extraction procedure described requires a forward characteristic and a reverse recovery measurement. The parameter extraction procedure is illustrated using finite-element simulations. The physics-based model using the parameters extracted is then compared with experimental results.
