Keysight B1500A Semiconductor Device Parameter Analyzer is a complete solution for characterization of various devices. It supports various measurement capabilities for IV, CV, pulsed IV and fast IV measurement and enables a wide range of electrical characterizations and evaluations for device, material, semiconductor, active/passive component, and any electric devices. Its modular architecture allows you to configure and upgrade the measurement modules up to ten slots according to your test needs at any time. Embedded Windows7 and powerful EasyEXPERT software support efficient and restorable device characterization on the GUI basis operation. Keysight B1500A is the only true parameter analyzer that provides the versatility for a wide range of measurement, uncompromised measurement reliability and test environment for efficient and restorable device characterization.

The Keysight EasyEXPERT is GUI based essential software working on the B1500A embedded Windows7. It supports all aspects of parametric test, from basic IV and CV sweeps to advanced ultra-fast IV and pulsed IV measurements. The ready-to-use hundreds libraries (application tests) make it easy to begin making complicated measurements immediately. The operation is available through the 15-inch wide touch screen in addition to keyboard and mouse operation for ease of use. The EasyEXPERT software also provides efficient test environment for intuitive operation, analysis and exploration in device characterization. The test condition and measurement data re automatically recorded in your workspace, so you can explore to characterize your device without stress.

EasyEXPERT key features:

  • Supports all aspects of parametric test, from basic IV and CV sweeps to advanced ultra-fast IV and pulsed IV measurement
  • Hundreds ready to use measurement libraries (application tests)
  • Personalized workspace and automated test data recording for device exploration without concerning data file management
  • Graph plot display/analysis/printing capabilities for analysis and reporting
  • Interactive real-time characterization by knob based curve tracing with the auto-record feature
