We certainly don't require ppm accuracy - we couldn't exploit it
unless we set up much better temperature control. The range on the
parameter isn't its deviation, but the range within which we might
want it set.

The electronics we use with our transducer is fast, but low-powered
and simple. What I'm looking for is an off-the-shelf quality control
tool for transducer development and production. As I've mentioned, I'd
love to develop one for myself, but it would be an extravagant waste
of time and money. Even buying an Agilent 4284 would be cheaper, and
