This Curve Tracer is an add-on board.
No SMD soldering is required.
The board is only intended to be used with a genuine Analog Discovery 2™ hardware, WaveForms software and accompanying WaveForms workspace.
Just follow the "Option B: KS Curve Tracer app" section down below.
According to Wikipedia,
A semiconductor curve tracer is a specialized piece of electronic test equipment used to analyze the characteristics of discrete semiconductor devices such as diodes, transistors, and thyristors.
This one is implemented as an add-on module for Digilent's awesome Analog Discovery 2™.
Plug in the add-on into Analog Discovery 2™ as shown in the product photos.
Download the ".dwf3work" workspace file from WaveForms workspace.
Open it with WaveForms software.
I'm assuming here that you're using Tabbed Interface in WaveForms:
Settings -> Options -> General -> Instrument windows: Tabbed.
Insert the device under test, according to pinout given below.
Click "Play" button on the "Script" tab in WaveForms.
Switch to the "Scope" tab.
Download the latest release.
Follow the KS Curve Tracer installation instructions
Select the device type. Use
PN for diodes,
PNP for BJTs,
PFET for MOSFETs and JFETs.
Insert the device under test, according to pinout shown on the right pane.
The IC socket has 2 rows: one for diodes and one for transistors.
Use the row closest to the board-to-board connection header. The pin closer to the centre of the board is anode, the rest are cathode.
Use the row furthest from the board-to-board connection header and closest to the edge of the board.
From the middle of the board to the edge:
Collector / Drain and Emitter / Source are specified for NPN BJTs and N-channel FETs. Swap Collector and Emitter For PNPs, Drain and Source P-channel FETs.
Analog Discovery 2™ is not included!
