PXI Source Measure Unit

PXIe, ±200 V, ±1 A DC, 20 W DC, 1 pA System PXI Source Measure Unit—The PXIe-4136 system source measure unit (SMU) delivers high power, precision, and speed and features 4-quadrant operation. It is a hardware-timed instrument with a high-speed sequencing engine for synchronizing acquisitions between multiple SMUs. The module supports 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. The PXIe-4136 is ideal for a broad range of applications including manufacturing test, board-level test, and lab characterization with devices such as ICs, power management ICs (PMICs), and RFICs and discrete devices including LEDs and optical transceivers.
