I-V Curve Tracer Configurations

Developing and using MOSFETS, IGBTs, diodes and other high-power devices requires comprehensive device-level characterization such as breakdown voltage, on-state current and capacitance measurements. While I-V curve tracer software supports testing two-terminal devices on graphical SMUs, Keithley also offers high-power Parametric Curve Tracer configurations to support the full spectrum of device types and test parameters. These configurations more closely mimic the old Tektronix I-V curve tracers.



Keithley’s Parametric Curve Tracer configurations include everything necessary for the characterization engineer to develop a complete test system quickly. These configurations are also modular, so they can be upgraded in the future and the individual instruments like source measure units can be used for other applications.
