±60 V, 3 A System PXI Source Measure Unit—The PXIe‑4138 system source measure unit (SMU) delivers high power, precision, and speed. It is ideal for a broad range of applications including manufacturing test; board-level test; lab characterization with devices such as integrated circuits (ICs), power management integrated circuits (PMICs), and radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs); and discrete devices including LEDs and optical transceivers. The PXIe‑4138 features 4-quadrant operation. The PXIe‑4138 is a hardware-timed instrument with a high-speed sequencing engine for synchronizing acquisitions between multiple SMUs. The module supports direct DMA streaming between the host PC and SMU, so you can stream large waveforms and measurement data at the full update rate and sample rate of the instrument.
