The double pulse test is a method to measure the switching parameters and evaluate dynamic behaviours on power devices. Check out our short video for more details.
Are you still reminiscing about those original Keithley curve tracers? Well reminisce no more! Watch this 2-minute video to find out about Keithley I-V tracer software and how to use it.
Measuring low current in your embedded device can be challenging, especially if you’re looking at levels as low as nA, that might quickly ramp up to µA. For this task you need a fast sampling device with high sensitivity. Why not take a look at our handy overview guide outlining the tools that are available. Click HERE to find out more.
Arbitrary function generators (AFGs) are the prevailing signal generator architecture in the industry today. They produce stable waveforms in classic shapes like sine, square, pulse, or triangle, as well as generate arbitrary waveforms with a user-defined shape. Plus, AFGs offer a way to modulate the signal from internal or external sources, generate frequency sweeps, or output signal bursts.
Download our primer "25 Common Things You Can Do With an Arbitrary Function Generator to learn about its unique strengths and 25 common applications for which an AFG can be used.
Check out this cool video from one of our Road Testers of the Keithley Model 2450 Graphical Source Measure Unit (SMU). SMUs can do more than just source and measure voltage and current. Enjoy and turn up the volume!
Keithley's new 2601B-PULSE System SourceMeter 10 μs Pulser/SMU Instrument with PulseMeter™ technology is an industry-leading high current/high speed pulser with measure plus the full functionality of a traditional SMU. It is the ideal solution for research, product development, design engineering and testing where currents up to 10A and a minimum of 10ms pulse widths.

Keithley’s next generation source measure units continue to enable engineers and scientists to learn faster, work smarter, and invent easier. And now, our new 2470 SMU is taking the Keithley mantra of “Touch, Test, and Invent” to the next level.
The most important projects are those that are more relevant in current times. Designing a basic motorized hands sanitizer can make a difference, and impact the safety and behaviour of many people. Watch this short video to discover how engineers can support this challenge and how to test with a simple Power Supply and Digital Multimeter.
The Source Measure Unit (SMU) is an instrument that can precisely source voltage or current and simultaneously measure voltage and/or current. It combines the useful features of a digital multimeter (DMM), power supply, true current source, electronic load and pulse generator, all into a single, tightly synchronized instrument in a compact form factor.
View the video below to find out more, and check out the latest Keithley SMU Selector Guide to find out which of their broad range of SMUs would best meet your testing needs.
Working from home doesn't have to delay your projects. Tek's new “Engineering From Home” web page provides remote work solutions enabling to you to control your instrument from home, and to help you keep your projects on track and ensure "business as usual" while travel restrictions are in place.
Keithley's KickStart instrument control software enables you to start measuring in minutes and without complex programming. The software works with a wide range of Keithley and Tektronix products, including Keithley SMU instruments, DMMs, power supplies, data acquisition units and Tektronix oscilloscopes.

Series 2230G power supplies provide up to 375 W of power in a compact 2 U high, half-rack wide enclosure. The 2230G-30-6 offers up to 6 A from two channels; the 2230G-60-3 offers up to 60 V from two channels. Adjustable, independent, and isolated channels can test two single voltage devices or a multiple voltage device with one power supply. Combine 30 V channels in series to increase voltage up to 60 V, or connect two or three channels in parallel to output as much as 15 A using the 2230G-30-6.
