You can change the channel operating mode of an SMU/Power Supply channel to Voltage
Sequence or Current Sequence mode to enable power sequencing. Power sequencing
allows you to output the desired power-up sequence for a DUT with multiple power
sources by configuring the order, timing, and level of each power supply
- Channels within the same panel operating in Voltage Sequence, Current Sequence,
Pulse Voltage, or Pulse Current mode are automatically hardware-synchronized. Refer
to Multi-Device Synchronization for more
information on hardware and software synchronization within panels.
- Sequence channel operating modes are supported only on power supplies that
support advanced sequencing. For more information on advanced sequencing and
supported devices, refer to NI-DCPower Advanced Sequencing documentation.
Place an SMU or power supply in a panel.
If you place the device in a large panel, the graph shows a preview of the
output sequence the channel will generate.
Set the operating mode of the panel to Waveform or
Placing the panel in Waveform mode enables fast
sampling and allows you to visualize the sequence in more detail.
Set the channel operating mode to Voltage sequence or
A step table appears within the channel.
Edit the steps in the step table by entering the values manually, importing
data from a file, or pasting data from the clipboard.
(Optional) Tune the output of the sequence using SourceAdapt
parameters, found in the Channel Settings window.
Enable the channel output and run the panel to begin the sequence.
