R&S NGU Series Sourcemeters

New R&S NGU Series Sourcemeters have launched today, and are available from TTid.

Thanks to their extremely high accuracy and fast load recovery time, the R&S®NGU source measure units (SMU) are perfect for challenging applications. A special ammeter design is used to precisely measure current drains from nA to A in one pass – no need to make multiple measurement sweeps. The instruments’ short recovery times enable them to handle fast load changes that occur, for example, when mobile communications devices switch from sleep mode to transmit mode. With high speed data acquisition, every detail is detected down to 2 μs resolution. The R&S®NGU source measure units provide two- or four-quadrant architecture, allowing them to function both as a source and a sink to simulate batteries and loads.

Technology for challenging tasks ► Fast load regulation ► Minimum residual ripple and low noise ► Readings with up to 6½ digit resolution ► Galvanically isolated, floating channels ► Output stage isolated with relays ► Voltage priority and current priority mode ► High-capacitance mode ► High speed data acquisition (FastLog function) ► Protection functions to safeguard instrument and DUT ► Safety limits to safeguard the DUT

Easy operation ► High-resolution touchscreen ► Color coding of operating modes ► Graphical display ► QuickArb function ► EasyRamp function ► Save and recall instrument settings

Ideal for use in labs and test systems ► Tailored for use in labs and system racks ► Remote sensing ► Front and rear connectors ► Full remote capabilities ► Fast on the bus and on the bench ► Advanced instrument design: compact form factor, quiet operation

R&S®NGU201 – the wireless communications specialist ► Two quadrants: operates as source and sink ► Variable output impedance and constant resistance mode ► Digital voltmeter (DVM) function ► Battery simulation 
R&S®NGU401 – the semiconductor testing specialist ► Four quadrants: source or sink operation with arbitrary polarity ► Modulation input
