You might find these papers useful, since they describe the IC,
the tools, and the remote testing infrastructure.

Plot showing remote and in-class measurement results; data must be compared on the same graph.
- Regressing MOSFET transistor measurements
Regressing the MOSFET I-V curves uses the following data:
chips (3.0a) assigned to you, you will also be able to get equivalent data
(not this week, but if you need it later).
The data for these I-V curves is read:
