Wow, neat. I'd still have to do a CL discharge (of course) to get the
data to derive a CC curve, but a CC discharge circuit is simpler.
Gotta give this one some thought. An experiment or two would be worth
Hmm...the CL voltage vs. time plot would be a different shape than the
CC voltage vs. time plot. Need to think a bit as to how the
translation would be done. Not as simple as I thought.
Thanks! Definitely something interesting to think about.
