    Dynamic load, minimum pulse cycle time[1]

    100 μs/A

    The following figure visually explains the terms used in the extended range pulsing sections.

    • 1 For example, given a continuous pulsing load, if the largest dynamic step in current that the load sources/sinks is from 0.5 A to 1.0 A, then the maximum SMU current step is 0.5 A. Thus, the minimum dynamic load pulse cycle time is 50 μs. Minimum dynamic load pulse cycle time is independent of output voltage.[2]
    • 2 Measurable unit of μs/A is used because the minimum pulse cycle time is independent of output voltage
