I particular I want   to program the AFU (Analog feedback Unit) to set a desired collector current   in a HBT. I have written a program that more or less does this but if I   increase the desired current required, an error is intoduced (e.g. up to 20 or   30mA is ok, but if I try to set 40mA, it only sets up approx 32mA, and the   error gets larger as the current is increased). The commands that I am using   are shown in the attached image (the entire program is too big to attach). I   basically want the AFU to find the required base voltage to set up a required   collector current and then input this base voltage to set a constant collector   current.</SPAN></FONT><FONT color=black><SPAN   style="COLOR: black; mso-color-alt: windowtext"><o:p></o:p></SPAN></FONT></P>  <P class=MsoNormal   style="BORDER-RIGHT: medium none; PADDING-RIGHT: 0in; BORDER-TOP: medium none; PADDING-LEFT: 0in; PADDING-BOTTOM: 0in; MARGIN-LEFT: 75.75pt; BORDER-LEFT: medium none; PADDING-TOP: 0in; BORDER-BOTTOM: medium none; mso-border-left-alt: solid black 1.5pt; mso-padding-alt: 0in 0in 0in 4.0pt"><FONT   face="Times New Roman" color=black size=3><SPAN   style="FONT-SIZE: 12pt; COLOR: black"> </SPAN></FONT><FONT   color=black><SPAN   style="COLOR: black; mso-color-alt: windowtext"><o:p></o:p></SPAN></FONT></P>  <P class=MsoNormal   style="BORDER-RIGHT: medium none; PADDING-RIGHT: 0in; BORDER-TOP: medium none; PADDING-LEFT: 0in; PADDING-BOTTOM: 0in; MARGIN-LEFT: 75.75pt; BORDER-LEFT: medium none; PADDING-TOP: 0in; BORDER-BOTTOM: medium none; mso-border-left-alt: solid black 1.5pt; mso-padding-alt: 0in 0in 0in 4.0pt"><FONT   face=Arial color=black size=2><SPAN   style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: black; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">Any help would be   greatly appreciated,</SPAN></FONT><FONT color=black><SPAN   style="COLOR: black; mso-color-alt: windowtext"><o:p></o:p></SPAN></FONT></P>  <P class=MsoNormal   style="BORDER-RIGHT: medium none; PADDING-RIGHT: 0in; BORDER-TOP: medium none; PADDING-LEFT: 0in; PADDING-BOTTOM: 0in; MARGIN-LEFT: 75.75pt; BORDER-LEFT: medium none; PADDING-TOP: 0in; BORDER-BOTTOM: medium none; mso-border-left-alt: solid black 1.5pt; mso-padding-alt: 0in 0in 0in 4.0pt"><FONT   face=Arial color=black size=2><SPAN   style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: black; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">Thanks,</SPAN></FONT><FONT   color=black><SPAN   style="COLOR: black; mso-color-alt: windowtext"><o:p></o:p></SPAN></FONT></P>  <P class=MsoNormal   style="BORDER-RIGHT: medium none; PADDING-RIGHT: 0in; BORDER-TOP: medium none; PADDING-LEFT: 0in; PADDING-BOTTOM: 0in; MARGIN-LEFT: 75.75pt; BORDER-LEFT: medium none; PADDING-TOP: 0in; BORDER-BOTTOM: medium none; mso-border-left-alt: solid black 1.5pt; mso-padding-alt: 0in 0in 0in 4.0pt"><FONT   face=Arial color=black size=2><SPAN   style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: black; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">Ciaran.</SPAN></FONT><FONT   color=black><SPAN   style="COLOR: black; mso-color-alt: windowtext"><o:p></o:p></SPAN></FONT></P></DIV>  <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN-LEFT: 0.5in"><FONT face="Times New Roman"   color=black size=3><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 12pt; COLOR: black">---<BR>You are   currently subscribed to vrf as: jayj@ventureconsult.com<BR>To subscribe send a   blank email to "join-vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".<BR>To unsubscribe send a   blank email to "leave-vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".<BR>To send messages to   this mailing list, email "vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com". <BR>If you need help   with the mailing list send a message to "owner-vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".   </SPAN></FONT><FONT color=black><SPAN   style="COLOR: black; mso-color-alt: windowtext"><o:p></o:p></SPAN></FONT></P></DIV></BLOCKQUOTE>---<BR>You are currently subscribed to vrf as: rsb@soco.agilent.com<BR>To subscribe send a blank email to "join-vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".<BR>To unsubscribe send a blank email to "leave-vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".<BR>To send messages to this mailing list,  email "vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".  <BR>If you need help with the mailing list send a message to "owner-vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".</BODY></HTML>
