Last Modified: May 14, 2018

Use this section of the IV Analyzer to enter basic measurement settings.

The following Analyzer mode settings are available.

Diode

Setting Description
Analyzer mode Device to analyze – select Diode.
Series resistance Appears when Diode is selected in Analyzer mode. This controls an internal variable resistor in the NI ELVIS III that is connected to the DUT+ connector. This resistor limits the current through the diode under test. The steps in this control are logarithmic: 10 Ω, 100 Ω, 1 kΩ, 10 kΩ, 100 kΩ, 1 MΩ.
Connections Connection diagram that shows how to connect the diode being measured to the NI ELVIS III.

Transistor

Setting Description
Analyzer mode Device to analyze – select Transistor.
Transistor type This appears when Transistor is selected in Analyzer mode. Select NPN or PNP.
Collector resistance Appears when Transistor is selected in Analyzer mode. This controls an internal variable resistor in the NI ELVIS III that is connected to the DUT+ connector. This resistor limits the current through the transistor under test. The steps in this control are logarithmic: 10 Ω, 100 Ω, 1 kΩ, 10 kΩ, 100 kΩ, 1 MΩ.
Connections Connection diagram that shows how to connect the transistor being measured to the NI ELVIS III. This changes to reflect the selected Transistor type.
