Keysight Technologies now offers a variety of different software control options for its B2900A Series Precision Source/Measure Units (SMUs). With the low-cost or free software options, you can access a variety of capabilities to support basic voltage and current sourcing up through full characterization of devices and materials using an intuitive GUI.
With a B2900A software control option, useyou don’t need to create a software measurement environment. This reduces development and evaluation times, making the B2900A SMUs well suited university educators, circuit designers, and R&D engineers.
The software control options for the B2900A SMUs include:
- EasyEXPERT group+, which provides powerful IV parametric characterization for a wide range of devices and materials. The software is currently utilized in Keysight’s high-end precision current-voltage analyzer products (e.g., the B1500A, B1505A and E5270B/E526xA).
- BenchVue, which enables benchtop integration of B2900A SMUs (as voltage/current sources) with a wide variety of other Keysight instruments, such as oscilloscopes and meters.
- B2900A Quick I/V Measurement software, which permits easy measurement setup and execution on a Windows-based PC via a user-friendly GUI. This control option supports all B2900 precision instrument family products, including SMUs, low-noise sources and electrometers, and works on multiple interfaces (LAN, USB and GPIB).
- Graphical Web Interface, which allows any Java-enabled web browser (e.g., Internet Explorer) to control B2900A SMUs over the LAN. Because special software is not required, this control option enables quick measurements on the fly.
The new control options for the B2900A SMUs are now available. The basic one-channel precision SMU model for the benchtop (B2901A) starts at $5,000.
