Source Measure Units

Source and measure, all in one unit

Before semiconductor devices and other electronic components can undergo commercial deployment, they must be characterized under a variety of environmental and functional testing to ensure conformity to specifications. Traditional benchtop testing involving a pair of digital multimeters and power supplies is often cost-prohibitive and time-consuming. A standalone, highly accurate, and highly functional device would be best suited to handle these applications. The source measure unit (SMU) provides:

Integration

  • SMU's combine the functionality of several devices including digital multimeters, power supplies, current sources, ohmmeters, and function generators into a compact, standalone device
  • Can be used as a storage device for data recording and transferring or as part of a larger test system

Accuracy

  • Source and measure hundreds of volts to all the way down to the microamp range, without losing resolution or speed

Functionality

  • Seven modes of operation for any situation including VS/IM, VS/VM, IS/VM, IS/IM, VS, IS, and VS/IM or IS/VM*
  • Special software for performing I/V curve tracing
  • A host of specialized functions for semiconductor testing including built-in and custom sweeps, ramps, and pwm. 

*
1. VS = Sourced Voltage
2. IM= Measured Current
3. IS= Sourced Current
4. VM = Measured Voltage

 

 

  • 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.

  • The GS820 is a highly accurate and highly functional 2-channel programmable DC voltage/current source that incorporates voltage/current generation and measurement function.

  • The GS200 is a low voltage/current DC source with high accuracy, high stability, and high resolution.

Overview:

After a disastrous 2009, the large publicly held test companies enjoyed booming business in 2010.

Overview:
No, the GS610 and the GS820 cannot be used solely as a DMM to measure only voltage. This is because the Sense terminal cannot be separated from the Output terminal on the instrument. The GS Series uses the Output ...
Overview:
The AC Power Input in all Yokogawa instruments is designed as a 3-pin connection (one of which is a GND pin). In some parts of the world, PCs are sold with AC power cables that are 2-pin. Often times this means the ...
Overview:
Unfortunately, we cannot upgrade a GS200 to add the /MON option. The GS series instruments, which includes the GS610 and GS820, cannot be retrofitted or upgraded with new options after the initial purchase. All ...
Overview:
The following attached document details the typical output noise of the GS200 from DC to 20 MHz.
Overview:
This is a list of command mnemonics which can be used to describe the GS610 program pattern file.○:Setting has changed successfully△:Setting has been received but failed×:Setting has not been ...
Overview:
The GP-IB command of the GS200 shares the same mode as the 7651. It can be swithced to 488.2 mode.
Overview:
It is possible to connect multiple GS units in series/parallel connections to boost the maximum voltage/current, provded the values are within the range of maximum voltage/current of those limiters. To amplify the ...
Overview:
The GS610/GS820 output is insulated from the cover case. Therefore, if you want to amplify the output voltage more than 1 unit (or 1 ch) you must connect the system in series. If you want to increase the output ...
