Jason Jones has tipped us with his latest project. He is working on a semiconductor curve tracer and details his progress on his website.
I have thought about this a lot recently and – in order to get the cost down – the unit must have a cheap or available power supply and must coopt the screen for another device. The first and easiest thing that comes to mind is to simply use USB for the power supply and use your PC screen as the screen. This is the direction that we will go for the moment in order to keep things simple. Up to this point, we have a screen and power supply without even starting the design.
