The paper discusses a precise method for evaluation of Diode Parameters N, IS and RS by solving the Schottky Diode equation. The Exponential model of diode has been considered for evaluating the DC characteristics. The procedure involves three stages; solving an approximated closed form equation, taking a feedback from the SPICE simulator and then optimizing the parameter values by solving the model’s Current Equation by Numerical Methods.
