HP 4145 Automated Calibration/ Performance Test

       A program is disclosed that interfaces with an IBM/PC,
general purpose interface bus adapter, HP 4145 and a digital
multi-meter to automate and verify calibration/performance of the HP
4145 semi-conductor parameter analyzer.

      Hardware requirements are an IBM/PC with expansion unit and 10
megabyte hard drive, general purpose interface adapter card, HP 3455
digital multi-meter, HP 4145 semi-conductor parameter analyzer and
three HPIB interface cables.

      Software requirements are DOS 3.3, BASIC, General Purpose
Interface Support.

      The program will automate the HP 4145, read data from the HP
4145 and digital multi-meter, input this data to the IBM/PC, perform
necessary calculations, display data with visual and audible alarms
to indicate a pass or fail and provide a hard copy if desired.  See
the figure for a flow diagram.
