   The Tekronix 371 Programmable Curve Tracer, the industry leader in high power curve tracers, is used for testing a wide variety of power semiconductors. It performs DC parametric characterization of thyristors, SCRs, IGBTs and power MOSFETs. The high voltage collector mode permits testing the Off-Characteristics of a device up to 3,000 volts. The pulsed high current collector mode provides output current pulses greater than 400 amps peak for testing On-Characteristics. It also permits high power testing up to 3,000 watts.

Interactive Programmable Control

   Interactive control of all measurements can be done from the full featured front panel or over the GPIB. Operating parameters can be adjusted and stored and recalled using several storage methods including the 371 nonvolatile memory or to an external controller.

Automated Cursor Measurements

   The 371 provides three cursor measurement modes. The Dot cursor provides direct screen readout of voltage, current, gm or DC beta at any point. The Window cursor can be positioned between two curves to measure small signal beta or gm, and can also be used for visual go/no-go tests. The Function Line cursor provides screen readout of a slope or intercept value.

Sweep Measurement Mode

   In the sweep measurement mode, the 371 will automatically construct a family of curves while stimulating the device with low duty-cycle pulses. With this capability, power curves can be displayed without excessive heating of the device.

Test Fixtures

   A test fixture is a standard accessory that provides safe device enclosure to ensure operator protection during measurements. The test fixture accommodates standard A1001 through A1005 adapters with Kelvin sensing, 3-Pin adapters without Kelvin sensing and the A1023 and A1024 surface mount adapters.
