Enables Characteristic Curve Tracing for Diodes and Transistors
The curve tracer instrument in WaveForms allows several devices of the Discovery family to draw characteristic curves of common devices like diodes, NPN and PNP transistors, and both P- and N-type FETs. The Transistor Tester can be plugged into the Analog Discovery (P/N: 2283975) and enable the use of this instrument without any need for reference circuit set ups, similar to a traditional curve tracer instrument. However, unlike traditional curve tracer instruments, WaveForms runs on a computer, readily providing measurements, cursors and screenshots that can be taken with the click of a button. This is extremely convenient for lab reports, and much more accurate than a photo of a display.
When using the Analog Discovery and Transistor Tester and adapter is selected, the curve tracer instrument provides the appropriate reference resistors and can easily be used to plot the characteristic curves and add cursors to take the necessary measurements. The Adapter is loaded with a 2x15 female connector which can be plugged directly into the Analog Discovery. Components or leads can be attached via the terminal block on the Transistor Tester.
