As the "highest performance parameter analyzer" according to Tektronix, the 4200A-SCS delivers synchronizing current-voltage (I-V), capacitance-voltage (C-V) and ultra-fast pulsed I-V measurements.
The analyzer also reduces characterization complexity and test setup by up to 50%, providing clear and uncompromised measurement capability. Plus, embedded measurement expertise, a first for a product of its kind, provides test guidance and provides design engineers with confidence in their results.
4200A-SCS Product Features
In addition to the above, the 4200A-SCS Parameter Analyzer is fully customizable and completely upgradable. This allows design engineers to add, remove, chop, and change instruments as and when it suits them.

4200A-SCS also features a Clarius GUI-based software that features embedded measurement expertise and hundreds of ready-to-use application tests to provide clear measurement and unparalleled analytical capability.
Other Key Features Include:
Industry’s first instrument with built-in measurement.
Tutorial videos from application engineers in four languages.
Pin to pad contact check ensures reliable measurements.
Multiple measurement functions.
Data display, analysis, and arithmetic functions.
Ready-to-use, modifiable application tests, projects and devices that reduce test development time.
Low Current Measurements with 4200A-SCS MSUs
Two new source measure unit (SMU) modules can be used with the 4200A-SCS for low-current measurements in the presence of high load capacitance. The 4201-SMU and 4211-SMU are designed solely for test setups with long cables, switch matrices, gate contacts to the chuck, and other fixturing.
These test setups, required in a number of low current measurement applications, can increase capacitance seen at SMU output even where the device being tested has a very low capacitance. When test connection capacitance is too high, any resulting low current measurements can become unstable.
The 4201-SMU and 4211-SMU address these challenges by sourcing voltage and measure over current with longer cables or more connection capacitance. This saves engineers a whole lot of time and costs that would be spent on troubleshooting and reconfiguration.
At the lowest supported current measurement range, both the 4201 and 4211-SMU can source into and measure a system that is 1,000 more times capacitive than what is currently possible.
Each 4200A-SCS Parameter Analyzer can be configured with up to nine of these SMUs.
