Keysight N698 measure unit

N6780 series modular source measure units

Extend the battery life of your portable devices with Keysight’s high performing modular source measure units.

Supplier: Keysight Technologies

Technology type: Source Measure Units

Portable devices use idle and sleep states to minimise current and extend battery life. An active state that transfers data can use 1000 times more current and seamless current ranging captures large active currents and small idle currents in the same waveform.

Measure currents accurately down to micro-ampere and nano-ampere with Keysight's source measure units (these modules require an N6700-series mainframe).
