DataTrace Analysis: Ultimate Curve Trace Software

The newest member of RTI’s software, DataTrace Analysis is the ultimate curve tracing tool. It offers all features users have requested for the StdTrace program in MultiTrace Software Suite. DataTrace Analysis comes in 3 packages each adding useful features to reduce the effort to analyze curves.

Software Packages

Packages are Basic (included in MultiTrace Suite), Analytical, and Full. Below are the features of each package.

Included in the MultiTrace Software Suite, the Basic package of the DataTrace software comes at no extra charge. It is also the foundation of both Analytical and Full DataTrace software. Basic features are: file viewing, array printing, advanced property display, file comparison, and graph annotation. Additionally, users can:

Load many trace files at one time

Open files in overlay or side by side graph modes

Synch pin number across open windows,

Display one pin, all pins or selected pins

Auto Color Selection, expanded color pallet

Expanded Display properties for curves

Zoom, PAN, Trace ID and measurement cursor modes

Color coded Trace ID and legend

Graph Titling and Annotation: add a note directly on the graph

Compare one file to another file

Save Image as displayed or print one image per pin

Save Image to BMP, JPG, PNG, PDF, ZIP

Save Image with Color Coded Legend, Captions, Annotations

Saves image files with incremented file names

Display, Save Image or Print with custom background image

Analytical DataTrace package comes at an additional cost and is not included in the MultiTrace Software Suite. Contact RTI for pricing.

In addition to Basic features, Analytical DataTrace has data extraction features. Users will be able to access all data contained in curve trace files, and extract voltage or current samples to spreadsheet files. Users can display data with or without units, and search for data.

Search Example: where X=100mV, what is the leakage current, etc.

Analytical DataTrace is excellent for compiling data for bar charts, and extracting data from files to construct ATE-like datalogs. This software can improve the look and professionalism of your reports. It may also be required for certain custom tests that don’t display well graphically.

Full DataTrace package comes at an additional cost and is not included in the MultiTrace Software Suite. Contact RTI for pricing.

The Full package of DataTrace has all the features of Basic and Analytical packages plus batch comparison features.

With batch comparison, users can compare large numbers of curve trace files and auto generate a control file by averaging other files. Users can generate bar charts summarizing failures, shorts and opens vs. pin number or serial number. Bar charts can display failed curves by a single click. Full DataTrace’s comparison report grid shows all devices and all pins in a color-coded chart highlighting failed pins and binning them into failure categories. Full DataTrace is excellent for counterfeit IC detection operations, package reliability, OSAT labs, and trimming down time for labs that analyze a high quantity of devices.
