I-V Curve Tracer Configurations
Developing and using MOSFETS, IGBTs, diodes and other high-power devices requires comprehensive device-level characterization such as breakdown voltage, on-state current and capacitance measurements. While I-V curve tracer software supports testing two-terminal devices on graphical SMUs, Keithley also offers high-power Parametric Curve Tracer configurations to support the full spectrum of device types and test parameters. These configurations more closely mimic the old Tektronix I-V curve tracers.
Keithley's Parametric Curve Tracer configurations include everything necessary for the characterization engineer to develop a complete test system quickly. These configurations are also modular, so they can be upgraded in the future and the individual instruments like source measure units can be used for other applications.

I-V curve tracer FAQs
What is I-V curve tracing?
I-V curve tracing is the process of analyzing current-voltage (I-V) characteristics of semiconductor devices for failure analysis and parametric characterization.
What does a curve tracer do?
A curve tracer is an electronic test device used to perform I-V curve tracing and analyze the characteristics of semiconductor devices such as diodes, transistors, and thyristors. Though curve tracers aren’t generally sold today, engineers can use I-V curve tracer software and other instruments on their bench to run the same tests as a curve tracer.
How does an I-V curve tracer work?
I-V curve tracers or I-V curve tracer configurations operate by varying a parameter, then measuring a separate parameter to produce data for analysis.
