Hello Huy,

I suspect the KUSB-3116 will not perform what you have asked.

It sounds like you would like to generate an I-V curve for your device. To generate an I-V curve, you need to be able to apply a stimulus and measure the response. If applying voltage stimulus, measure current response; if applying current stimulus, measure voltage response. Keithley SourceMeter products are very well suited for this.

The KUSB-3116 can measure voltage. It cannot measure current directly.
