The CTR-101 Curve Tracer from Saelig Company, Inc. plots device characteristics for diodes, transistors, MOSFETs, JFETs, and other LF and RF semiconductors, or demonstrate the linearity of resistive substrates. It provides up to 30 V test voltage at up to 1 A test current from true voltage and current source drive amplifiers. The high resolution measurements are displayed on a USB-connected computer using the provided Windows/Mac/Linux-compatible GUI software, which auto-scales in real-time the output plot during the analysis of a device under test. A pulsed test mode is available to minimize device dissipation. Sample-by-sample power and current limiting, as well as thermal and over-current protection, safeguards devices during test.
The curve tracer measures a compact 4.125 x 1.3 x 6 in. and is powered by an external 110 Vac/48 Vdc/1A wall adapter switching supply.
