Keysight (Agilent) Technologies E5250A Semiconductor Parametric Analyzers


Low Leakage Switch Mainframe

Low Leakage Switch Mainframe
Please call for availability
Live Inventory Check:


The Agilent E5250A low-leakage switch mainframe expands a single measurement station, such as the Agilent B1500A, 4155C, or 4156C, to an automated measurement system. Plug-in modules can be configured either as a cross-point matrix for general parametric measurements or as a multiplexer for long-term reliability measurements.

When configured as a 24 (8 x 3) Channel Multiplexer, the E5250A is ideal for long term reliability measurements with its 384 channel capability and advanced features typically found only on large, more costly input devices. This allows inexpensive power supplies to be used for consistent stressing.

The large number of channels and low-cost stress sources allow efficient testing of hundreds of devices in parallel, saving cost and time and achieving accurate, consistent results.
