COMPONENTS TO BE TESTED:
Transistors (including Darlingtons and "digital" transistors), Silicon and Germanium types. Measures gain, VBE and leakage.
MOSFETs, enhancement mode and depletion mode types. Measure on-threshold (at 5mA) and approx transconductance (for span of 3mA-5mA).
IGBTs (insulated gate bipolar transistors). Measures on-threshold (at 5mA).
Diodes and Diode networks.
LEDs and bicolour LEDs (2 lead and 3 lead types).
Triacs and Thyristors that require less than 10mA of gate current and holding current.
Voltage regulators (measures regulation voltage <8V, drop-out voltage, quiescent current). Note that some regulators are not stable without their decoupling caps and/or minimum load and cannot be tested by the DCA75.
