A source measurement unit (SMU) instrument can boost productivity, deliver more complete characterization, and increase overall test system performance. However, to truly optimize your testing, it's imperative to look beyond the "banner specs" when selecting the right SMU for your application.
This web seminar will explain the basics of how SMU instruments work, describe key features and capabilities to consider for selecting an SMU instrument, and compare the actual performance of different SMU instruments in "real-world" applications.
The material presented in this web seminar will be of value to engineers, researchers, educators, and students characterizing and testing semiconductor-based devices, components, materials, and technologies with current vs. voltage (I /V) characteristics that need to be verified and/or better understood. Typical devices and technologies include traditional silicon, compound semiconductor (for example, SiC, GaN) for power/energy applications like HBLEDs and solar cells, electronic components, nanotechnology, and emerging technologies such as graphene.
