A modern curve tracer solution

Install I-V Tracer Software to your 2400 Series Graphical SMU and create a functional replacement to traditional curve tracers like the Tektronix 576 or 370. Quickly trace out two-terminal device characteristics without configuring sweeps or connecting to other software.

Making the big power switch

sourcemeasure unit at a wafer probe station

Demand for more efficient high-voltage semiconductors in 5G, automotive, and alternative energy markets is driving increasingly complex testing and research into new technologies like SiC and GaN. Your testing equipment will need to evolve to keep up.

The new 2470 SMU adds capabilities in measurements like breakdown voltage, leakage current, isolation testing, hi-pot and dielectric withstanding tests to get you to insight faster.

Make measurements at a whole new level.
