I’ve written about the Keithley before, but the HP 6612B power supply has been sitting in a box for a few days waiting on me getting time to unpack it and check it out. I’m very pleased. Can we say dead nuts? It’s just as accurate in voltage mode. This will be a very useful addition to the lab because it’ll avoid my usual spaghetti wiring monitoring voltage and current with two separate bench multimeters. I also rather like the fact that it has GPIB, which given its built-in measurement capabilities has Possibilities. It’s not a SMU, but it’s a credible quarter-of-a-SMU, and seemingly accurate enough to do duty as a voltage/current standard if I only need 0.1%-ish precision.

If anyone gets the SMU joke, I’ll be impressed! 😉
