Stocks in this article: NATI





SAN FRANCISCO, July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- At Semicon West, National Instruments (Nasdaq: NATI) today announced the expansion of its line of PXI SMUs for automated semiconductor test. Ideal for parallel testing of multipin semiconductor DUTs, the new NI PXIe-4143 SMU offers 600,000 samples per second and four channels – the highest channel density of any SMU – and expands NI's multichannel SMU output range to 24 V at 150 mA. Such features help reduce the cost of capital equipment, decrease test times and increase mixed-signal flexibility for a variety of DUTs.

Quote

"With the new NI PXIe-4143, our SMU family now gives test engineers DC measurement options for almost any device," said Ron Wolfe, vice president of semiconductor test at National Instruments. "Our industry-leading channel counts, superior sample rates and SourceAdapt technology for custom tuning, provide one of the most flexible selections of semiconductor measurement instruments available." Product Features

  • Four SMU channels with up to 600 kS/s sampling rate to measure fast transient responses
  • Four-quadrant output capability of 24 V at 150 mA, complementing preexisting NI SMU capabilities for sourcing and sinking
  • Measurement sensitivity of 10 pA
  • Flexible, compact PXI modular instrumentation architecture for small-footprint equipment deployments
