Why would I want a Powered Curve Tracer?

If you have interest measuring the supply current or how the I/O pins behave in the active powered state, then you need a curve tracer with powered curve trace capabilities.

A 4 or 6-bus MultiTrace is useful for measuring supply current under a wide range of static input conditions. In many cases, quasi-functional tests can be created to characterize analog functionality or a parameter over a range of supply voltage. Most DC values can be measured within the +/-15V, 1A range of the system with +/-100V, 100mA range available in some cases.
