Keysight Technologies B2911A

Precision Source/Measure Unit 1 Ch.,210V,3A DC/10.5A Pulse

The Keysight B2911A Precision Source / Measure Unit (SMU) is a 1-channel, compact and cost-effective bench-top SMU. The B2911A has the ability to source and measure both voltage and current along with its capability to perform I/V (current vs. voltage) measurement easily with high accuracy. The high quality 4.3’’ color display and numerous view modes improve productivity for test, debugging and characterization.

Resistance measurement

Resistance measurement can be performed under either auto or manual test conditions. Auto resistance measurement is performed in current source and voltage measurement mode.

The total auto resistance measurement error is shown in the table below. The total error of a manual resistance measurement can be calculated using the voltage and current accuracy information as shown below.

Source I mode, manual ohm measurement (4-wire)

Total error = Vmeas/Isrc = R reading x (gain error % of V range + gain error % of

I range + offset error of I range/Isrc value %) + (offset error of V range/Isrc value)

Source V mode, manual ohm measurement (4-wire)

Total error = Vsrc/Imeas = 1/ [1/R reading x (gain error % of I range + gain error % of

V range + offset error of V range/Vsrc value %) + (offset error of I range/Vsrc value)]

Measurement speed

1 PLC

Applicable for temperature

23 °C ± 5 °C

Example of total error calculation

I source value = 1 mA at 1 mA range

V measure range = 2 V range

Total error (% reading + offset) = (0.02 % + 0.02 % + 200 nA/1 mA) + (350 μV/1 mA) = 0.06 % + 0.35 Ω
