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