The PXI-4132 is a programmable, high-precision source measure unit (SMU) in a single-slot, 3U PXI module. It has a single, isolated SMU channel that offers a 4-quadrant, ±100 V output incorporating remote (4-wire) sense as well as external guarding. This channel is capable of sourcing and sinking up to 2 W maximum. It can source and sink currents up to 20 mA at up to 100 V, currents up to 50 mA at up to 40 V, and currents up to 100 mA at up to 20 V.

With measurement resolution down to 10 pA and integrated guarding, the PXI-4132 precision source is ideal for high-accuracy leakage measurements on integrated circuits, discrete components, PCBs, and cables. You can also perform high-speed I-V measurements on a variety of components including diodes and organic LEDs using the onboard hardware sequencing engine. In addition, you can synchronize multiple PXI-4132 SMUs via the PXI backplane to provide high-speed I-V measurements on transistors and more complex devices.

For parallel test applications, you can use up to 17 PXI-4132 modules in a single PXI chassis for 17 high-precision SMU channels in a 19 in., 4U space.

For higher power requirements, consider the PXI-4130 power SMU, which offers a 4-quadrant, 40 W output (±20 V, ±2 A) and an additional power supply channel at up to 6 V, 1 A.
