Keithley 590 Features:

  • 0.1fF sensitivity to test small devices.
  • Ranges up to 20nF (at 100kHz, using 5904 adapter) to test large, leaky, or forward biased devices.
  • Test signal voltage of 15mV rms.
  • Choice of 1MHz frequency for compliance with existing test standards or 100kHz for improved resolution, range, and accuracy.
  • Selectable measurement rate (1 to 1000 readings per second) and filter to optimize speed/resolution trade-offs.
  • Sophisticated correction for transmission line errors due to device connections.
  • Built-in test setup and correction value storage, analysis, and plotter control to minimize computer programming

The Keithley 590 C-V Analyzer measures capacitance versus voltage (C-V) and capacitance versus time (C-t) characteristics of semiconductor devices. Unlike other capacitance measurement instruments, the 590 has been tailored to the requirements of semiconductor device testing.

High frequency (100kHz or 1MHz) C-V measurements are commonly applied to test p-n or schottky junction and  tal-Insulator-Semiconductor (MIS) devices for device characterization and process control. C-V results are highly  correlated with performance parameters of functional devices such as FETs, memory cells, CCDs, and isolation structures.
