Purpose: Runs the curve.

When Ivt.Run() is executed, the acquired data are displayed in a real-time curve. There are four buttons active during Ivt.Run(): Abort, Pause/Continue, Skip, and Point. The Abort button terminates the entire experiment. The Skip button skips to the next phase of the experiment, either to the end of the curve or to the next region of the signal generator's operation.

The active run can be halted in several ways

1) when the signal generator is finished,

2) if the operator hits a Skip button, or

3) if one of the stopping criteria is met. The stopping criteria can be enabled or disabled using the Ivt.StopAt functions.

If the Pstat.SetIruptMode() switch is TRUE, the system uses a current-interrupt process to measure the uncompensated IR-drop throughout the experiment.

Usage: Result = Ivt.Run()
