Extended E-J characteristics in a YBCO coated ion beam assisted deposition tape have been studied over a wide range of perpendicular magnetic field, B, and temperature, T. The statistical distribution of the critical current density, Jc, and the magnetic transition field have been analyzed within the frame work of the percolation model. It has been shown that the distribution of pinning strength in the coated tape is much sharper than that in an epitaxial thin film deposited on a SrTiO3 single crystalline substrate. This result suggests that effective pinning sites are introduced in the coated tape. Scaling behavior of the pinning force density will also be shown. The present analysis allows us to estimate the Jc value quantitatively at an arbitrary B, T and electric field criterion.
