Keithley Instruments, Inc. Adds Two GPIB-Programmable Power Supplies to Series 2200 Line
Feb 18 14
Keithley Instruments, Inc. announced the addition of two multi-channel power supplies with GPIB interfaces to its line of programmable DC power supplies. The new models address the need for greater control and communication flexibility in both R&D and production test applications, which GPIB interfaces can provide. Both the Model 2220G-30-1 dual-channel and 2230G-30-1 triple-channel power supplies combine the advantage of greater output accuracy than offerings from the market leader at prices that are substantially lower. These new GPIB-equipped models expand Keithley's Series 2200 line of one-, two-, and three-channel power supplies, which complement the broad offering of instrumentation from Keithley and Tektronix. The new power supplies enhance ease of use in circuit design, university student labs, materials research, and device testing that requires the use of more than one power source. Their output levels address a wide range of sourcing requirements for characterizing components, circuits, modules, and complete devices. The Model 2230G-30-1 power supply provides two output channels, typically used for powering analog circuits, with each channel capable of outputting up to 30V/1.5A/45W, plus a 6V/5A/30W output channel, typically used for powering digital circuits. (In contrast, the market-leading three-channel supply's analog outputs are limited to just 25V@1A.) The Model 2220G-30-1 power supply provides two output channels, each capable of outputting up to 30V/1.5A/45W. These maximum output levels, combined with voltage setting and reading resolution of 1mV and current setting and reading resolution of 1mA, allow generating.
Keithley Enhances S530 Parametric Test System Capabilities with Software Upgrade
Jan 20 14
Keithley Instruments, Inc. introduced the latest upgrades to its popular S530 Parametric Test Systems, the semiconductor industry’s most cost-effective solution for high-speed production parametric test. These enhancements demonstrate Keithley’s ongoing commitment to S530 user needs for system serviceability, measurement confidence, and a low overall cost of ownership, as well as Keithley’s commitment to parametric test in general. S530 Diagnostics and System Verification Tool: This new GUI-driven tool expands diagnostic coverage for all system instrumentation and matrix pathways, providing greater confidence in the health of the system. Additionally, users can run the system verification tool to ensure the S530 is within its published system specifications. The diagnostic and system verification tool generates comprehensive results files, making it easier to share information with Keithley field service personnel or monitor trends in system health. Overall, the new tool improves the user’s experience with the S530, while driving down total cost of ownership. S530 systems are optimized for use in production parametric test environments that must accommodate a broad mix of products or wherever wide application flexibility and fast test plan development are critical. In addition to the 200V system configuration that is typically used for standard CMOS, bipolar, MEMS, and other relatively low voltage semiconductor processes, Keithley developed a 1kV version optimized for the difficult breakdown and leakage tests that GaN, SiC, and Si LDMOS power devices demand.
Newark element14 Launches First Source Measure Unit Instrument of Keithley Instruments, Inc
Aug 20 13
Newark element14 has launched the first Source Measure Unit (SMU) instrument with a capacitive touchscreen graphical user interface. Made by Keithley Instruments, Inc., the Model 2450 SourceMeter® SMU Instrument is ideal for characterizing modern scaled semiconductors, non-scale devices, organic semiconductors, printed electronics and other small-geometry and low-power devices. The Model 2450 combines the capabilities of I-V systems, curve tracers and semiconductor analyzers in one unit costing far less than those products together. The U.S. list price is $5,400, and a version without a front panel for automated systems integration is available for $5,100. As the next iteration of the Model 2400 SourceMeter SMU instrument, the product is available for orders now at element14. Benchtop application advantages include: Full-color, 5-inch touchscreen graphical user interface (GUI) with built-in help; Extended measurement ranges with superior low current performance; Error and event logging and KickStart start-up software providing a more intuitive operation and requiring 50% fewer configuration steps. Test system integration advantages include: Embedded Test Script Processor -- provides higher test throughput by eliminating common GPIB traffic problems. TSP-Link® inter-unit communication bus -- multiple TSP instruments can be linked for multi-point or multi-channel parallel test; Model 2400 legacy mode -- backward compatibility with existing 2400 SCPI programs and PC connectivity and automation -- simplifies configuring multi-instrument test setups.
