low-power devices. All this combined with Keithley SMU precision and accuracy allows users to Touch, Test, Invent® with the new favorite go-to instrument in the lab for years to come.
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
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.
Make measurements at a whole new level
SMU instruments capture more-detailed device behavior and can characterize the device in extended ranges, so you can understand your device better, enhance its quality and improve its performance.
Intuitive UI. Smart and fast.
Measure, see and discover more on the intuitive, multi-touch user interface – from raw readings to histograms to time-based and voltage/current-based waveforms—and get to your answers more quickly.
Unmatched versatility and return on investment.
SMU instruments bring versatility to a new level for today’s applications and tomorrow’s innovation. Configure yours as a precision power supply, 6½-digit DMM, current source, voltage source, picoammeter, electronic load and more.
