The Amplicon Measurement & Control division announces the release of the Keysight (formally Agilent) B2900A series of precision bench-top instruments; with wide voltage/current ranges and superior performance at extremely affordable rates.
The Keysight B2900A
series is a compact precision source/measure unit (SMU) featuring up to two-channels with 10 fA/100 nV or 100 fA/100 nV measurement resolution and 210 V, 3 A DC/10.5 A pulse source capabilities. This level of performance is typically found in high end semiconductor device analysers. The B2900 also features intuitive GUI to set-up and view I/V curve on the front panel which makes it ideal for semiconductors, component and materials testing.
The B2900A series consists of four models, the one-channel B2901A and B2911A and the two-channel B2902A and B2912A. These SMUs are further distinguished by capabilities such as the number of displayed digits, measurement resolution, minimum timing interval and supported view modes; making it easy for customers to select a combination of price and performance that fits their testing needs.
In automated testing, the B2900A series delivers excellent accuracy and repeatability with best-in-class measurement speed. These units also have 12,500 readings per second (maximum sweep-operation reading rate, source/measure to GPIB), which is double the rate of competitive SMUs on the market. Under programmatic control, these new SMUs support the SCPI command set, enabling basic compatibility with and easy migration from a conventional SMU.
This series comes with a 4.3-inch colour LCD screen that supports graphical and numerical displays in single, dual, graph and roll views. By making it easy to quickly complete a variety of measurements and view the results on a colour display, the B2900A series performs interactive testing, debugging and characterisation faster than conventional SMUs.
