Keithley SourceMeter (SMU) Instrument with GPIB & RS Interfaces, 3A – at the Test Equipment Depot. The High Voltage SourceMeter is a 60W instrument designed to source and measure voltage from ±5µV (source) and ±1µV (measure) to ±60V and current. Keithley’s Model High-Voltage SourceMeter is designed specifically for test applications that demand tightly coupled sourcing and measurement.

By linking source and measurement circuitry in a single unit, the C offers a variety of advantages over systems configured with separate source and measurement instruments.
Other keihley of the interface include:. It is designed for reliable operation in non-stop production environments. Data Sheet KB. Three basic sweep waveforms are provided that can be programmed for single event or continuous operation. SourceMeter SMU instruments can make standard 4-wire, split Kelvin, and 6-wire, guarded ohms measurements and can be configured for either the constant current or constant voltage method.
Other capabilities of the interface include: All SourceMeter SMU instruments include Keithley’s unique Trigger Link interface which provides high-speed, seamless communications with many of Keithley’s other instruments. For example, it provides faster test times by reducing 24200 traffic and simplifies the remote programming interface.
It simplifies the test process itself by eliminating many of the complex synchronization and connection issues associated with using multiple instruments. It also protects the device under test from damage due to accidental overloads, thermal runaway, etc. Moves from the start level to the stop level in equal linear steps – Logarithmic Staircase Sweep: Done on a log scale with a specified number of steps per decade.
Providing the finest test equipment solutions since 1992
Both the current and voltage source are programmable with readback to help maximize device measurement integrity. Sweep solutions greatly accelerate testing keighley automation hooks. To provide the throughput demanded by production applications, the SourceMeter SMU instrument offers many built-in features that allow it to run complex test sequences without computer control or GPIB communications slowing things down.
View Cart My Account The 6-wire ohms technique: Done on a log scale with a specified number of steps per decade – Custom Sweep: And its compact kkeithley size conserves precious “real estate” in the test rack or bench. Manufacturers of components and modules for the communications, semiconductor, computer, automotive, and medical industries will find the C invaluable for a wide range of characterization and production test applications.
The tightly coupled nature of a SourceMeter SMU instrument provides many advantages over solutions configured from separate instruments, such as a precision power supply and a digital multimeter.
For example, it minimizes the time required for test station development, setup, and maintenance, while lowering the overall cost of system ownership. The power source characteristics include low noise, precision, and readback. If the readback reaches a programmed compliance limit, then the source is clamped at the limit, providing fault protection.
The 6-wire keihtley technique:. Moves from the start level to the stop level in equal linear steps.
Keithley SourceMeter – Instrument Driver – National Instruments
Voltage, current, and resistance can be measured during leithley or sync operation. Allows construction of special sweeps by specifying the number of measurement points and the source level ,eithley each point. In the first and third quadrants they operate as a source, delivering power to a load. In the second and fourth quadrants they operate as a sync, dissipating power internally. It sources voltage or current while making measurements without needing to change connections.
Standard and Custom Sweeps Sweep solutions greatly accelerate testing with automation hooks. Advantages of a Tightly Integrated Instrument By linking source and measurement circuitry in a single unit, the C offers a variety of advantages over systems configured with separate source and measurement instruments. The result is a compact, single-channel, DC parametric tester.
In operation, this instrument can act as a voltage source, a current source, a voltage meter, a current meter, and an ohmmeter.
