Agilent Technologies improves B1505A Power Device Analyzer to accommodate world's fast-growing power-device market

Today, Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced enhancements to the B1505A Power Device Analyzer/Curve Tracer that significantly increase its voltage and current range to cover all devices in our world’s fast-growing power-device market. Ranging from capabilities that improve the quality and performance of design and research, to extensive device evaluation capabilities, to improved efficiency, to an upgradeable and scalable hardware architecture, these enhancements make the B1505A the industry's first power-device evaluation solution to accurately and efficiently measure a device's characteristics from sub-pA up to 10 kV/1500 A. The B1505A is well suited for power-device researchers and manufacturers performing power-device characterization and failure analysis. Even more so, the new solutions can be used for incoming device inspections and failure analysis by power-device users in equipment and automotive companies.
