- Maximum current is 1 A (0 V to 200 V)
- Voltage programming accuracy of 0.0000002%
- Overvoltage protection, and overcurrent protection
The Agilent 41420A Source/Monitor Unit (High Power SMU: HPSMU) is a plug-in unit for the 4142B Modular DC Source/Monitor. The 41420A can force and measure up to +/-200 V or +/-1 A (maximum power: 14 W). The Agilent 41420A pA Meter / DC Voltage Source consists of an extremely stable picoampere meter and two programmable DC voltage sources, one of which operates as a ramp and staircase generator as well as a DC source. These features make the unit ideal for making DC characteristic measurements such as leakage current, current-voltage characteristics and quasi-static C-V measurements required by the semiconductor industry for new product development and for improving production yields. It is equally useful in measurements of electronic components and materials to determine leakage currents or insulation resistances.
