The latest demands on semiconductor characterization include the accurate measurements of the sample being tested, in a high-throughput manner. This is required to increase the number of data points, reduce drift effects and keep measurement periods small. For engineers that do not wish to implement test sequences on a production tester and who are searching for a handy, cost-effective test & measurement solution, the HF2IS offers fast and flexible signal generation, combined with accurate and immediate signal acquisition. The HF2IS offers the option to run software for signal generation and response analysis directly inside the instrument, thus excelling in throughput and efficiency over a wide frequency range from µHz to 50 MHz.
