so far I have been using the 4200 for characterising OFETs in one of our labs. I have recently set up another lab for doing the same, but under inert atmosphere, so using a nitrogen glovebox. My question now is, can two 2400 units connected together and controlled via Labview achieve the same functionality as one 4200 for OFET characterisation? We are mostly interested in DC characteristics of our devices. I understand that the 4200 has probably higher input impedance than a 2400. How important is timing for transistor characterisation - we are planning to write a Labview VI to be able to control two 2400 together from one computer? Apologies for not knowing this, but I am not an electrical engineer.
Thank you for help!
in the 4200 its more tightly integrated and you have a common software platform allowing a configuration instead of programming
(Probably no need to add C-V, pulsing an preamplifier options for your application ...)
If you want to go for a 2x 2400 setup you might consider the free labtracer 2 software if you want to acchieve basic I-V characterization.
Please have a look and see whether the effort of programming on your own can be eliminated ... .
yes Labtracer2 needs GPIB as communications interface (check the readme file for tested boards); version 2.9 added support for 2401.
In labtracer you could use a combination of different SourceMeters so 2400 and 2401 combined is possible.
How can we connect two Keithley 2400 to use them in labtracer for fet characterization? I didn't succeed to use Keithley 2400 together by using labtracer. I choosed them in block diagram of Labtracer but gate power supply didn't work. I use two GBIP cables with series connection on the KUSB 488.
