Agilent Technologies - Modular Source Monitor Unit Series
E5263A - 2 Channel (High/Medium Power) High Speed Source Monitoring System

General Features

Measurement Capabilities

The Agilent E5263A lowers your cost-of-test by providing a high-speed parametric test solution for semiconductor, RFIC, and optical component testing needs. Key features include a high-speed DC measurement of current and voltage, enhanced measurement speed for fast throughput, expanded program memory, 16 digital I/O lines for sophisticated triggering requirements, and parallel test capability, all priced to affordably provide the ideal balance of functionality.

Fast measurement that lowers cost-of-test

The fast measurement speed of the E5263A makes it an ideal choice for high-speed production test in situations requiring only one or two SMUs. Based on Agilent 4070 Series system technology, the Agilent E5263A lowers your cost-of-test with a high-speed parametric test solution for semiconductor, RFIC, and optical component testing. HPSMU and MPSMU modules and a ground unit are included in the E5263A, providing just enough test capability for many component-testing needs. The E5263A provides superior measurement throughput, several times faster than earlier products such as the Agilent 4142B. A number of innovative design elements help to improve the efficiency of complex testing, such as expanded program memory to accelerate the measurement process, and 16 digital I/O lines for sophisticated triggering requirements. The E5263A price is approximately US $16,000, depending on options.

Features and Benefits

Feature Benefit
One HPSMU and one MPSMU configuration. Cost effective solution provides just enough test capability
SMUs that measure several times faster than 4142B SMUs Faster test times and improved throughput, resulting in a lower cost-of-test
Code compatible with the 4142B Replace current 4142Bs with the E5263A and enjoy a large throughput improvement with only minimal test code modification
16 digital I/O lines for instrument triggering in addition to BNC trigger-in & trigger-out connectors Sophisticated triggering schemes involving multiple instruments can easily be created
All trigger signals are processed via hardware rather than firmware Fastest possible trigger response from the instrument
Front panel control Can conveniently perform and report spot measurements via a simple front-panel interface, without programming.  View other items of interest, such as error messages, valuable when debugging the instrument performance under automated control.
