-In the current mirror configuration,​ the op amp serves as a virtual ground at the mirror input (base) node to convert the voltage steps from AWG 2 ( W2 output ) into current steps through the 1KΩ resistor. The collector voltage is swept using a ramp from AWG 1(output W1) set to 3V peak to peak with the offset to 1.5V. V<​sub>​CE</​sub>​ of output device Q<​sub>​2</​sub>​ is measured differentially by scope inputs 1+, 1-.

 If you don't want to use the op-amp configuration the following simplified configuration can be used as well. If you don't want to use the op-amp configuration the following simplified configuration can be used as well.
