DataTrace Software: The Ultimate Curve Tracer Software
The newest member of RTI’s software, DataTrace is the ultimate curve tracer software. It offers 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 analyzing curves.
The Basic Package of the DataTrace software is included in the MultiTrace Software Suite. The Basic Package 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 a custom background image
In addition to the features of the Basic Package, 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 data-logs. 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.
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 downtime for labs that analyze a high quantity of devices.
