E5270B Precision IV Analyzer/8 Slot Precision Measurement Mainframe

Data Sheets


Keysight Technologies, Inc. E5270B Precision IV Analyzer is the complete solution for current-voltage characterization of a wide range of materials and devices. The E5270B supports multiple SMUs (Source/Monitor Units) for voltage/current sourcing and voltage/current measurement with the best in the class current measurement performance as low as 0.1 fA. Its modular architecture allows you to configure or upgrade SMU modules for available eight slots. The EasyEXPERT group+ GUI based characterization software is furnished and available on your PC to support all the tasks required in the characterization from the measurement setup to the data analysis. Powerful integration of SMU’s versatile measurement capabilities and GUI based characterization software makes the E5270B the best solution for characterization and evaluation of devices, materials, semiconductors, active/passive components, or virtually any other type of electronic device with uncompromised measurement reli­ability and efficiency.

Keysight EasyEXPERT group+ supports efficient and repeatable device characterization in the entire characterization process from measurement setup and execution to analysis and data management either by interactive manual operation or automation across a wafer in conjunction with a semiauto­matic wafer prober. EasyEXPERT group+ makes it easy to perform current-voltage characterization immediately with the ready-to-use measurements (application tests) furnished and allows you the option of storing test condition and measurement data automatically after each measurement in a unique built-in database (workspace), ensuring that valuable information is not lost and that measurements can be repeated at a later date. Keysight E5270B provides the complete solution for current-voltage characterization with these versatile capabilities.

In addition to using as an analyzer, the E5270B is available as a system component SMU for a rack and stuck test system. It provides the scalability and the highest measurement accuracy in the class for current-voltage measurement. It can be controlled remotely by the FLEX command set supporting the powerful measurement capabilities.

Basic features
