In this video, Yokogawa Test & Measurement’s Application Engineer Barry Bolling will demonstrate the use of a source measure unit; first he will demonstrate a simple sweep of a silicon diode and then present the current-voltage data in a graph within a spreadsheet; then, he will sweep a light emitting diode and again present the data in a graph using specialized software.
The high-speed, high-accuracy real-time V-I curve tracer consists of the GS Series Source Measure Unit and the 765670 Curve Tracer Software. It is particularly well-suited to DC parametric tests of minute signals.
The GS200 is a low voltage/current DC source with high accuracy, high stability, and high resolution.
The GS610 is made up of a programmable current and voltage source, a voltmeter, and an ammeter. Each function can be combined into numerous operation modes.
Yokogawa's instruments go beyond conventional options. They are highly accurate, highly functional with programmable voltage/current source that incorporates voltage/current generation for a broader application.
For general purpose standalone applications or as core components in a high speed test and measurement system, Yokogawa sources and signal generators are highly accurate and functional.
A Source Measurement Unit (SMU) is a flexible test instrument which is capable of both sourcing and measuring voltage and/or current at the same time.
