Keithley Instruments, Inc.
Switching systems are often needed to automate and speed up the testing of
multiple devices in a production environment, and when making mixed signal
measurements during R&D and production. Mixed signal measurements on
multiple devices increases the importance of switching systems as a means of
achieving high test system throughput.
Still, there are a number of potential pitfalls in choosing and configuring
the switch hardware and software for such a test system. These can lead to less
than optimal speed, measurement errors, shortened switch lif|
