Triggering 2182A with SMU2601A

Hi, I would like to measure the resistance of my samples using the 4 wire method. I'm planning to use my SMU2601A as a current source and the nanovoltmeter 2182A to read the voltage drop across the DUT. I was wondering if it was possible to trigger the reading of the voltage on 2182A with the 2601 (...

Re: correct timing for data acquisition

Thank you very much for your answer, but it's not exactly what I meant. Probably I was messy in describing my problem. Taking your second example, you wrote: i,v = smua.measure.iv() print(i) print(v/i) but if, for example, I have setted before smua.measure.nplc = 10 and smua.measure.filter.count = 1...

correct timing for data acquisition

Hi, I have one Keithely SMU 2601A connected with another insturment and I manage both with macros written in VB. So, for example, to take a current measurement I send, via GPIB, the command "print(smua.measure.i())" and read the output string. I wrote a script to perform a sweep in voltage and read ...

Re: SMU 2601 & MultiVu

Hi, I tried to change the terminating character in 10 and in 0 (the function accepts only integer values) but nothing changed. I also tried to remove the vbCrLf in the SendString but it seems to be necessary. Curiosly SMU seems to do the operations I wrote into the script but the message error remai...

Re: SMU 2601 & MultiVu

Hi, it's me again. I tried to run some scripts to test the setting but I got "Error code -285 TSP syntax error at line 1 invalid control char near 'char(1)' " . The simplest script I used at the end consists in only 2 commands: GPIB.AddDevice(26, 13, 1) GPIB.SendString(26, "smua.reset()" & vbCrLf) T...

SMU 2601 & MultiVu

Hi, I have to perform electric measurements with a SMU 2601 on samples placed inside a Quantum Design PPMS. The QD software that manage the instrument is MultiVu and it allows to integrate 3rd party instruments into measurements via scripts in WinWrap Basic (very similar to Visual Basic). I'd like t...
