The Agilent N6784A is a source/measure unit (SMU) designed for general-purpose precision sourcing and measurement. General-purpose applications can span many different industries and many different devices under test (DUTs). The N6784A SMU is a versatile tool designed to tackle many of these general-purpose applications. Its glitch-free operation ensures safe usage with the DUT during output and measurement range changes, even with capacitances of up to 150 µF. Its 4-quadrant operation enables it to act as a bipolar power supply or a bipolar electronic load, for added versatility. When using the N6784A SMU, engineers can be confident that they have an all-around general-purpose tool for their test systems or lab bench.

Other features and benefits of the N6784A:

  • Glitch-free sourcing and measurement ? change output and measurement ranges without any glitches
  • 4-quadrant operation ? perform as a bipolar voltage or current source or as a bipolar CV or CC electronic load
  • Four current programming ranges - precisely source current down µA
  • Four current measurement ranges ? precisely capture the current levels of the DUT during different modes of operation
  • Excellent transient response ? keep voltage or current stable during high-speed load changes
  • Fast modulation of DC ? create waveforms up to 100 kHz to stimulate or load down the DUT
  • High-speed digitized measurements ? capture/view the power consumption of the DUT up to every 5 µs with built-in 200 kHz digitizer

Other N6700 SMUs:

  • N6781A 2-Quadrant Source/Measure Unit for Battery Drain Analysis
  • N6782A 2-Quadrant Source/Measure Unit for Functional Test

This module is used in both the small, multiple output 1U high N6700 Low-Profile Modular Power System (for ATE systems) and the multiple output N6705 DC Power Analyzer (for bench testing). GPIB, LAN, USB, and LXI Class C compliance are standard. Select from more than 20 different DC power modules, ranging in capability from basic to high precision, and in power from 20 - 300 W.
