Model 4225-PMU Ultra-Fast I-V Module

Part Number : 4225-PMU

Model 4225-PMU Ultra-Fast I-V Module

The Model 4225-PMU Ultra Fast I-V Module is the latest addition to the growing range of instrumentation options for the Model 4200-SCS Semiconductor Characterization System. It integrates ultra-fast voltage waveform generation and signal observation capabilities into the Model 4200-SCS's already powerful test environment to deliver unprecedented I-V testing performance, expanding the system's materials, device, and process characterization potential dramatically. Just as important, it makes ultra-fast I-V sourcing and measurement as easy as making DC measurements with a traditional high resolution Source-Measure Unit (SMU).

Each plug-in Model 4225-PMU module provides two channels of integrated sourcing and measurement but occupies only a single slot in the Model 4200-SCS's nine-slot chassis. Unlike competitive solutions, each channel of the Model 4225-PMU combines high speed voltage outputs (with pulse widths ranging from 60 nanoseconds to DC) with simultaneous current and voltage measurements. With this combination of ultra high-speed voltage source and voltage and current measurement capabilities, existing Model 4200-SCS systems can be easily upgraded into a flexible measurement tool for a wide range of ultra-fast I-V test applications. Each chassis can accommodate up to four Model 4225-PMU modules, for a maximum of eight ultra-fast source and measure channels, leaving five other chassis slots free for installing other types of instrumentation. These hardware and software capabilities are also available for new Model 4200-SCS systems as factory-installed options.

  • Provides voltage outputs with programmable timing from 60ns to DC in 10ns steps
  • Measure I and V simultaneously, at acquisition rates of up to 200 megasamples/second (MS/s)
  • Choose from two voltage source ranges (±10V or ± 40V) and four current measurement ranges (800mA, 200mA, 10mA, 100µA)
  • Each module provides two channels of integrated simultaneous I-V sourcing and measurement; plug in up to four modules in a single chassis for eight synchronized channels
  • Model 4220-PGU Pulse Generator Unit offers a voltage-sourcing-only alternative to the Model 4225-PMU
  • Optional Model 4225-RPM Remote Amplifier/Switch expands current ranges (10mA, 1mA, 100µA, 10µA, 1µA, 100nA), switches sourcing/measurement between the Model 4225-PMU, Model 4210-CVU, Model 4200-SMU, and 4210-SMU
