Digital  SourceMeter (Keithley #2400 / #2410 / #2420)

 

2400, 2410 and 2420 Digital SourceMeter® Line

Source Meter #2400 Series


Keithley's new Source Meter® family is the first series of instruments designed specifically for test applications that demand tightly coupled precision voltage and current sourcing and measurement. They build upon many of the technologies originally developed for Keithley's popular line of Source-Measurement Units (SMUs). All three Source Meter models combine a precision, low-noise, highly stable DC power supply with read back and a low-noise, highly repeatable, high impedance, 5 1/2-digit multi-meter. The result is a compact, single-channel, DC parametric tester. In operation, these instruments can act as a V-Source, an I-Source, a V-Meter, an I-Meter and an ohmmeter. Manufacturers of communications, computer, automotive and consumer electronics products will find them invaluable for a wide range of design and production test applications.


Three Source and Measurement Range Choices

The Source Meter family offers a choice of three sets of source and measurement ranges, so test system developers can select the instrument best suited for the types of components to be tested.

? The Model 2400 Source Meter is a 20W instrument that allows sourcing and measuring voltage from ±1µV to ±200V DC and current from ±10pA to ±1A.

? The Model 2410 High Voltage SourceMeter is a 20W instrument that sources and measures voltage from ±1µV to ±1100V and current from ±10pA to ±1A.

? The Model 2420 High Current SourceMeter is a 60W instrument designed to source and measure voltage from ±1µV to ±60V and current from ±100pA to ±3A.

All three SourceMeter instruments are suitable for making a wide range of DC measurements, including resistance at a specified current or voltage, breakdown voltage, leakage current, insulation resistance, and electrical characterization.

This timing diagram shows a typical production system throughput improvement of nearly 50% achieved by a 2400 based test system with a 7001 switching system and a handler with a 100ms handling time.

High throughput for production testing
The 2400 line lets you perform high-speed single or multi-point pass/fail testing on a wide range of components. The line's 1000 rdgs/s at 41/2 digits through a GPIB (IEEE-488) connection ensures higher throughput. The buffer memory can store up to 5000 51/2-digit readings. An on-board comparator simplifies high-speed pass/fail tests without the delay of computer/IEEE-488 interaction.


A digital I/O interface lets you link the 2400 family to many popular component handlers. A Source Memory List allows up to 100 instrument configurations to be stored in memory, each containing source settings, sense (measurement) settings, and pass/fail criteria.
