E4980AL Agilent LCR Meter

The E4980AL is a 1 MHz LCR Meter from Agilent. An LCR meter is a piece of electronic test equipment that measures inductance (L), capacitance (C), and resistance (R) of electronic components. The LCR meter accurately measures these elements on an electronic device, usually one subjected to an alternating current (AC) voltage source. The LCR meter measures the current through and voltage across the device under test.

The Agilent E4980AL is the low frequency model of the Agilent E4980A precision LCR meter. The Agilent E4980AL provides the best combination of accuracy, speed and versatility for a wide range of impedance measurements. The Agilent E4980AL features exceptionally low noise at both low and high impedance to improve test quality (e.g. 0.05% basic accuracy, O/S/L compensation, test cable extension), Fast speed and measurement versatility to reduce cost of test as well as to accelerate the development cycle (e.g. 12 ms speed, list sweep, DC bias), and a Wide variety of options (including upgrade options) and over 20 accessories (e.g. material meas., SMD/leaded device meas.) to maximize the investments The equivalent series resistance (ESR) of capacitors is becoming smaller and smaller to meet high-speed and low power-consumption circuit needs; and is difficult to measure.

The Agilent E4980AL provides exceptional measurement stability. The capacitance values of chip-capacitors are now down to femto-farad (fF) range. Thus, very stable and accurate high impedance measurements are required for higher yields and design reliability. Surpassing Agilent HP's previous industry-standard LCR meter (Agilent 4284A), the Agilent E4980AL further improves measurement stability for these small capacitance devices.
