Default Atlas DCA75 Curve Tracing Semiconductor Analyser

Heya fellows,

Has anyone used this Semiconductor Analyser with Curve Tracing function? I'm particularlly interested in its curve tracing function. It looks like a wonderful tool to make short work of rudimentary device matching, any comments?

I saw that also and am curious. But I have several transistor tester/checker/curve-tracers already. However, convenience is king and if it is fast at matching, for example, I might get it anyway and get rid of a couple others.

It looks like a great gadget. If someone can figure out how to create a spice model from the traces I would be on board instantly. It won't plot high power or high voltage devices.

Mine just arrived --- demian -- you can download the curve trace data and use Microsoft Solver to determine the DC transfer parameters.

Here's a graph of the 2N5551 -- makes life easier than my TEK576. The DCA Pro gives VBE to 3 significant digits.
