The SMU combines four-quadrant operation with precision and high speed measurement. This makes the SMU an ideal instrument in many parametric test applications ranging from ICs, two-leaded components such as sensors, LEDs, laser diodes, transistors, to solar cells, batteries and many other electronic devices.
The 52400 series features: 16 selectable control bandwidths to ensure high speed output and stable operation; multiple source/measure ranges with an 18-bit DAC/ADC to provide the best resolution and accuracy available with a sampling rate up to 100K s/S; programmable internal series resistance for battery simulation; ±force, ±sense and ±guards lines to avoid leakage current and reduce settling time — especially useful for low current test applications.
The 52400 series has a patented hardware sequence engine that uses deterministic timing to control each SMU. The sequencer’s on-board memory can store up to 65535 sequencer commands and 32k measurement samples per channel, allowing cross module/card synchronizat ion and latency free output control and measurement. No PC communication is required during execution of the hardware sequencer test process.
