MOSFET Device Characterization

Thumbnail

With its integrated source and measure, voltage or current, precision and accuracy on an intuitive, graphical touchscreen display, a Series 2400 Graphical SMU instrument is ideal for capturing drain family of curves, threshold voltage, gate leakage and transconductance.

Highlights

  • I-V curve display on a touchscreen interface
  • Source and sink voltage and current
  • Best accuracy 0.012% with 6½-digit resolution

High Speed Testing of High Brightness LEDs

Thumbnail

Use a SMU instrument's unique pulsing, voltage, or current capabilities to minimize self-heating on HBLEDs and reduce the negative impact on measurement accuracy, as well as to eliminate the worries about damaging the device under test.

Highlights

  • Minimum programmage voltage and current pulse: 150 µs
  • Maximum pulse current 10 A
  • Maximum pulse power 1000 W

VCSEL Testing

Thumbnail

The industry's best DC test system for laser diode (LD) production test, SMU instruments offer high speed and high accuracy for both current sourcing and voltage-current monitoring of laser diode modules, photodiode current. SMUs are the most cost-effective LIV instrumentation with high system synchronization and throughput.

Highlights

  • Programmable current source up to 10 A and 150 µs
  • Voltage and current measure resolution at 10 nV and 10 fA
  • TSP-Link® Technology for up to 32 instruments at <1 µs synchronization

Characterizing and Validating Sensor Performance

Thumbnail

SMU instruments are the most accurate, reliable, and convenient way to characterize and validate sensors and transducers that can generate and measure ultra-low and low voltage or current signal during sleep and active states of operation. SMUs offer the widest operating range, sensivity, speed and accuracy to minimize false readings and test with confidence.

Highlights

  • Voltage and current measure resolution at 10 nV and 10 fA
  • Best voltage and current measure accuracy at 0.012% and 0.02%
  • Maximum sample rate at 1 MSamples/s
