Keysight B1500A Semiconductor Device Parameter Analyzer

Keysight B1500A Semiconductor Device Parameter Analyzer

The B1500A is a Semiconductor Parameter Analyzer from Agilent. Semiconductor parameter analyzers are all-in-one tools used for a wide range of measurement capabilities. Semiconductor parameter analyzers can measure and analyze electrical characterizations of many types of electronic devices, materials, active or passive components, semiconductors, or any other kind of electronic equipment. Engineers use this piece of test equipment for the monitoring of current and voltage responses in different types of devices.

The Agilent B1500A Semiconductor Device Analyzer is a modular instrument with a ten-slot configuration that supports both IV and CV measurements and also fast high-voltage pulsing. Its familiar, Microsoft ® Windows ® user interface supports Agilent's EasyEXPERT software, which provides a new, more intuitive task-oriented approach to device characterization. Because of its extremely low-current, low-voltage, and integrated capacitance measurement capabilities, the Agilent B1500A can be used for a wide range of semiconductor device characterization needs (IC-CAP supports the Agilent B1500A). It is also an excellent solution for non-volatile memory cell characterization and high-speed device characterization (including advanced NBTI and RTS noise (RTN) measurement).
