Offering a wide measurement range and excellent sensitivity, the Agilent 4142B modular DC source/monitor is a system-use DC measurement instrument especially designed for high-throughput DC semiconductor testers. A completely user-definable system component, the Agilent 4142B features modular architecture that allows you to build a custom configuration to suit your measurement needs. Eight plug-in module slots can accommodate any combination of modules. Choose from two types of source/monitor units (SMUs) to force or measure up to ±200 V and ±1 A: a high-current source/monitor unit (HCU) up to ±10 A, a high voltage source/monitor unit (HVU) up to ±1000 V, a voltage source/voltage monitor unit (VS/VMU), and an analog feedback unit (AFU). The instruments command and measurement datastorage capabilities, coupled with the high-speed HP-IB interface, minimize computer loading, enhance throughput, and simplify systemization.
