The Semiconductor Industry is always searching for new special materials, dielectric solutions and new device geometries for scaling down the device size further and further. Lateral and vertical heterostructures of 2D materials for instance have led to new revolutionary tiny and low power electronics. It’s the typical problem of electrical characterization in the low current range: the need to identify the attainable device performance under different conditions for low power / low leakage currents MOSFETs. The problem is practically solved by using a certain number of source measure units (SMUs), special instruments capable of sourcing current or voltage while measuring both current and voltage.

The present article describes the capabilities of devices necessary for electrical laboratories for testing and measuring work. It should be considered that all types of work proceeded by electrical laboratories are «inthe- field» ones. That means the devices used should meet the following requirements: enhanced functionality, high measurement accuracy, reliability, impact resistance, and one of the most important requirement is the availability of Type Approval Certificate in Russian Federation which allows using such equipment in the field of metrological control and supervision. The current article will provide the examples of devices, convenient and multifunctional, that meet all of the requirements of electrical laboratories.

Combined devices are becoming more and more popular due to their multifunctionality. Handheld oscilloscopes are very convenient for in-the-field measurements. Nevertheless some types of measurements require several different measuring devices which can be hardly taken along with just a singly oscilloscope. RTH1000 series by Rohde & Schwarz can be considered a perfect solution therefore since it has compact dimensions as well as functional capabilities of laboratory oscilloscope. The following article will represent all of the advantages of this combined series.
