Keysight B1500A Semiconductor Device Parameter Analyzer is complete device characterization solution supporting versatile measurement capabilities for IV, CV and leading-edge fast pulsed IV measurement with uncompromised measurement reliability.


Multiple Measurement Instruments in One Semiconductor Parameter Analyzer

The Keysight B1500A semiconductor parameter analyzer is an all-in-one device characterization analyzer supporting IV, CV, pulse / dynamic I-V, and more. The mainframe and plug-in modules enable the characterization of most electronic devices, as well as materials, semiconductors, and active/passive components. The B1500A semiconductor parameter analyzer modular architecture gives you the flexibility to upgrade when needed.

  • Switch between CV and IV measurements without re-cabling.
  • Capture ultra-fast transient phenomena not possible with other conventional test instruments.
  • Detect multi-frequency AC capacitance measurements from a range of 1 kHz to 5 MHz.
