Abstract

In any system, in particular, a test system, the ever-increasing need for accuracy creates a need for tighter tolerances on system devices such as programmable current or voltage sources. In order to resolve these needs, when conditions restrict a hardware solution, a software solution, based on the incorporation of an algorithm which solves for the root of a polynomial equation into a system Op Code or routine, can be used to increase the performance of the system device requiring improvement.
