Keysight B1511A (Agilent) Highlights
Source/Measure Units (SMUs), such as the Keysight B1511A (Agilent), are the key measurement modules of the Agilent / Keysight B1500A Semiconductor Device Parameter Analyzer. The SMUs integrate voltage/current source and measurement capabilities into a module, and it enables accurate DC current-voltage (IV) measurement with down to fA / µV resolution. The low current measurement performance can be expanded down to sub-fA level by the optional ASU (Atto sense switch unit) if you need more measurement performance.
The B1511A can also perform the Quasi-Static Capacitance-Voltage (QS-CV) measurement. It is a measurement method to obtain low frequency CV characteristics, and it is important to characterize the surface state of the gate of transistor as well as high frequency CV. Keysight B1500A enables accurate QS-CV measurement with the leak current compensation.
Along with analysis and data management capability of EasyEXPERT software, it is very powerful and useful to perform characterization for semiconductor, nano devices such as carbon nanotube (CNT) and carbon nanowire (CNW), active/passive component, material and any electric devices that require accurate and precise voltage/current measurement.
