    As microelectronic technology continues to progress, there is an ever-increasing demand for higher levels of system integration and circuit miniaturization. This trend leads to highly repetitive computational tasks during simulation, optimization and statistical analyses, requiring fast and accurate modeling tools. This paper presents a robust technique for extracting the most suitable small-signal equivalent model of a given transistor. The proposed approach is demonstrated through examples of field effect and heterojunction bipolar transistor characterization
