LED Test Circuit Using the Oscilloscope (MSB079E)

LEDs are diodes and can be tested with a simple configuration that allows the display of its characteristic curve in a oscilloscope. The circuit to make this simulation is given by figure 1. The signal source is a transformer powered from the AC power line. Figure 1 shows the circuit.
