Strong stuff!

Me, just use Arduino Zero and opto-isolators.

Thanks!
EPIC 20.000 (imminent release) has semi-automatic and automatic (as well as manual) signature comparisons, board picture and test-tree functions. So more like Huntron Workstation than FADOS.

Because of the pulsed mode nature of testing power semiconductors we sample all ADCs (4x 24bit) simultaneously. I donít know if the Zero can do simultaneous sampling, probably not important if youíre interfacing to a non-pulsed CT.

IMO This is the most important reason to test semiconductors.... for making models used in CAD. The other, IMO, is for matching/sorting. Especially FETs.

I have a Chinese made curve tracer (CRT wow) which allows me to see two device characteristics displayed at the same time on the screen. Great for matching.
