Keysight B2900A Series Precision Source / Measure Units are cost-effective source/measurement solutions offering superior performance and a best-in-class graphical user interface.

The Keysight B2900A series of SMUs provide best-in-class performance for a modest price. They have broad voltage (210 V) and current (3 A DC and 10.5 A pulsed) sourcing capability, excellent precision (minimum 10 fA/100 nV sourcing and measuring resolution) and possess a superior color LCD graphical user interface. In addition, several task-based viewing modes dramatically improve productivity for test, debug and characterization.

The Keysight B2900A series offers unmatched measurement throughput and supports the conventional SMU SCPI command set for easy test code migration. These features improve test productivity and lower the cost of ownership when integrating the SMUs into systems for production test.

The Keysight B2900A series consists of four models, the B2901A, B2902A, B2911A and B2912A, differentiated through their measurement specifications and by the number of SMU channels (one or two) they support. This makes it easy to select the exact price/performance point to meet your testing needs.

In addition, multiple instrument remote control options are available at little or no cost: BenchVue, B2900A Graphical Web Interface, B2900A Quick IV Measurement Software, and EasyEXPERT group+. These multiple software control options allow you to choose the solution that best fits your particular application.

If you need lower noise for sourcing or/and more sensitive current measurement, please also refer to B2900 precision instrument family products.

The N1294A and N1295A are accessories for the B2900A series. The N1294A consists of optional products such as Banana-Triaxial adaptors, interlock cables and a GPIO-BNC trigger adaptor, Digital I/O Trigger Cable for Multiple Unit Control. You can select any accessory as necessary. The N1295A is a test fixture for B2900A.

The B2900A Series received awards from electronics industry media.
