Precision Source/Measure Unit
Data Sheet
Introduction
The Keysight Technologies, Inc. B2900A Series of Precision Source/Measure Units are
compact and cost-effective bench-top Source/Measure Units (SMUs) with the capability
to output and measure both voltage and current. An SMU combines the capabilities of
a current source, a voltage source, a current meter and a voltage meter along with the
capability to switch easily between these various functions into a single instrument. The
Keysight B2900A series of SMUs provide best-in-class performance at a lower price than
ever before. They have broad voltage (210 V) and current (3 A DC and 10.5 A pulsed)
sourcing capability, excellent precision (minimum 10 fA/100 nV sourcing and measuring
resolution ) and high measurement throughput. They also support an arbitrary waveform
generation function. In addition, the Keysight B2900A series possess a superior graphical
user interface with various viewing modes that dramatically improve test productivity,
debug and characterization. The versatile integrated source and measurement capabilities
of the Keysight B2900 series SMUs make them an ideal choice for testing semiconductors,
active/passive components and a variety of other devices and materials. The B2900
series has a broad application range that spans from R&D and education uses to industrial
development, test and manufacturing. Moreover, they work equally well as either standalone or system components. The Keysight B2900A series consists of four models, the
B2901A, B2902A, B2911A and B2912A, differentiated through their available features
(number of digits displayed, measurement resolution, minimum timing interval, supported
viewing modes, etc.) and by the number of SMU channels (one or two) they contain. This
makes it easy to select the exact price/performance point to meet your testing needs.

Resistance measurement
Resistance measurement can be performed under either auto or manual test conditions.
Auto resistance measurement is performed in current source and voltage measurement
mode. The total auto resistance measurement error is shown in the table below. The total
error of a manual resistance measurement can be calculated using the voltage and
current accuracy information as shown below.
Source I mode, manual ohm measurement (4-wire):
Total error = Vmeas/Isrc = R reading x (gain error % of V range + gain error % of
I range + offset error of I range/Isrc value %) + (offset error of V range/Isrc value)
Source V mode, manual ohm measurement (4-wire):
Total error = Vsrc/Imeas = 1/ [1/R reading x (gain error % of I range + gain error % of
V range + offset error of V range/Vsrc value %) + (offset error of I range/Vsrc value)]
Measurement speed = 1 PLC
Applicable for temperature: 23 °C ± 5 °C
Example of total error calculation:
I source value = 1 mA at 1 mA range
V measure range = 2 V range
Total error (% reading + offset) = (0.02 % + 0.02 % + 200 nA/1 mA) + (350 μV/1 mA) =

Operation and Functions
Front panel interface
4.3” Color TFT WQVGA (480x272, with LED backlight) provides a graphical user interface
(GUI) with the following features.
– 4-view modes (Single, Dual, Graph, Roll view)
– Easy-to-use key operations
– Easy access to basic and advanced source/measurement capabilities
Single view
Single view provides basic and advanced settings and display capabilities for the selected
channel from the front panel of the instrument. No additional controller or software is
required.
Dual view
Dual view provides the basic settings and display capabilities for both channels 1 and 2.
Up to 6½ digits can be displayed in dual view mode. This mode is available only for the
B2902A/B2912A.

Operation and Functions, continued
Graph view
Graph View displays measurement results on XY graphs (such as I-V and I-t/V-t curves)
on up to 2 channels. This is useful for quick evaluation of device characteristics,
especially those obtained from sweep measurements.
Roll view
Roll view draws I-t or V-t curves similar to the curves drawn by a strip chart recorder.
Up to 1000 acquired data points can be displayed and updated while the measurement
is still in progress. Roll view’s continuous measurement capability is especially useful for
monitoring low frequency phenomena. Roll view is available only for the B2911A/B2912A.
Easy-to-use key operations
– 10-key, assist key and rotary knob for easy operation.
– 10-key enables direct input of alphanumeric values.
– Assist key guides operation on the front panel.

Sweep direction: single or double
Type: DC, or pulse
Min programmable value to create list sweep waveform:
B2901A/B2902A: Min 20 μs with 1 μs resolution
B2911A/B2912A: Min 10 μs with 1 μs resolution
Digitizing/sampling measurement
Digitizing/sampling measurement can be performed by appropriate setting of measure
speed and trigger interval.
Min trigger interval (Max speed of measurement):
B2901A/B2902A: 20 μs (50000 points/s)
B2911A/B2912A: 10 μs (100000 points/s)
Data buffers
Data buffers are array of measurement elements. Each elements hold the following values.
– Measured voltage
– Measured current
– Measured resistance
– Time stamp
– Measurement status
– Source setting
Max buffer size: 100000 points / channel
Program and interface capabilities
Programming language
The Keysight B2900A series supports SCPI (Standard Commands for Programmable
Instruments).
Default command set:
Supports all of the advanced features of Keysight B2900A series.
Conventional command set:
Supports industry standard conventional SCPI command set for basic compatibility
Program memory
Program memory allows you to store long strings of SCPI command lines once into the
B2900A series’ volatile memory and then recall those strings multiple times while the
program is executing using a single SCPI command. By storing the command strings
in memory, the time that would have been spent sending those same commands over
a communication bus is eliminated. For tests that utilize lots of repeated code (such as
subroutines), program memory can dramatically reduce test times.
Max number of characters of program name:
32, with alphabets, numbers, hyphens and underscores.
Max memory size: 100 kB (2500 lines typical)
