Abstract and Keywords

This article describes a new circuit device, developed in collaboration with scientists at Sandia National Laboratories, based on treed Gaussian processes (TGP). The circuit devices under study are bipolar junction transistors, which are used to amplify electrical current. To aid with the design of the device, a computer model predicts its peak output as a function of the input dosage and a number of design parameters. The methodology also involves a novel sequential design procedure to generate data to fit the emulator. Both physical and computer simulation experiments are performed, and the results show that the TGP model can be useful for spatial data and semiparametric regression in the context of a computer experiment for designing a circuit device, for sequential design of (computer) experiments, sequential robust local optimization, validation, calibration, and sensitivity analysis.

Keywords: circuit devices, treed Gaussian processes (TGP), bipolar junction transistors, sequential design, computer simulation experiments, computer model, spatial data regression, semiparametric regression, sensitivity analysis, calibration
