The CD offers a wide variety of application notes and tutorial information on using Source-Measurement Units (SMUs) in applications such as high power, high brightness LED test, solar cell characterization, and high resistance measurements. SMUs combine the capabilities of a number of instruments, including DC voltage and current sources and a digital multimeter (DMM). These instruments are equally suitable for stand-alone benchtop use and as building blocks in highly scalable system solutions, combining wide I-V dynamic range with tightly synchronized operation. A convenient selector guide simplifies identifying the most appropriate SMUs for a particular application. The CD provides background on Keithley's long-standing position in SMU innovation, as well as a detailed overview of the features and advantages of each of Keithley's SMU families, including links to data sheets, application notes, application briefs, and online demos.
Keithley's 20-year leadership in SMU technology is based on its ability to deliver an unmatched combination of measurement precision and speed for leading applications in the electronics industry. No other SMU product line offers the combination of dynamic signal range, speed and precision, making Keithley's SMU solutions idea for a variety of applications including:
- Semiconductor device fabrication, process development, and product research/design
- Production verification of electronic products such as portable wireless devices
- Production and development of new advanced materials for devices such as solar cells and high brightness LEDs (HBLEDs)
