Simple Curve Tracer Circuit: Tracing the Curve for Resistor, Diode and Transistor

Most of electronics deals with Tracing Curves, be it the characteristic transfer curve for a feedback loop, a resistor’s straight VI line or a transistor’s collector voltage versus current curve.

These curves give us an intuitive understanding of how a device behaves in a circuit. An analytical approach might involve plugging in discrete voltage and current values into a mathematical formula and graphing the results, commonly with the x axis representing voltage and the y axis representing current.
