Power of Five Instruments in One (IV Source, IVR Measure)
Keithley's SourceMeter family is designed specifically for test applications that demand tightly coupled sourcing and measurement. All SourceMeter models provide precision voltage and current sourcing as well as measurement capabilities. Each SourceMeter instrument is both a highly stable DC power source and a true instrument-grade multimeter. The power source characteristics include low noise, precision, and readback.
The multimeter capabilities include high repeatability and low noise. The result is a compact, single-channel, DC parametric tester. In operation, these instruments can act as a voltage source, a current source, a voltage meter, a current meter, and an ohmmeter. Manufacturers of components and modules for the communications, semiconductor, computer, automotive, and medical industries will find the SourceMeter instruments invaluable for a wide range of characterization and production test applications.
A unique family of instruments to solve a wide range of challenging applications
There's a SourceMeter solution for just about any DC measurement challenge you can imagine. You can link any of them to a variety of component handlers for fast binning and sorting. Plus, SourceMeter instruments are fully compatible with Keithley's popular switching mainframes and cards for automating high speed, multipoint test applications.
Coupled Source and Measure Capabilities
The tightly coupled nature of a SourceMeter instrument provides many advantages over separate instruments. The ability to fit a source and a meter in a single half-rack enclosure saves valuable rack space and simplifies the remote programming interface. Also, the tight control and single GPIB address inherent in a single instrument results in faster test times for ATE applications due to reduced GPIB traffic.
Electrochemical Test Suite
A Keithley Model 2450 or Model 2460 SourceMeter Source Measure Unit (SMU) Instrument can be used to perform cyclic voltammetry and other electrochemistry tests using Keithley's new 2450- ECHEM Electrochemical Test Suite. The 2450-ECHEM, a no-charge option, includes an open source test script to perform CV right on the instrument without the need for a PC. For PC users, the option also includes a LabVIEW CV Executable along with the source code to run the test on the Model 2450 or 2460. Download the 2450-ECHEM Data Sheet for more information.
