New Keithley Switch Mainframes Boost System Throughput for Semiconductor Test Applications
Keithley Instruments, Inc. (NYSE:KEI), a world leader in advanced electrical test instruments and systems, has introduced the six-slot Model 707B and single-slot Model 708B switch matrix mainframes, which are optimized for semiconductor test applications in both lab and production environments. By providing significantly higher command-to-connect speeds, these switch mainframes make faster test sequences and greater overall system throughput possible. Equally important, these new mainframes support Keithley’s Model 7174A “Air Matrix” 8x12 High-Speed, Low-Leakage Matrix Card, the first standard switch capable of achieving less than 100fA of offset current on all pathways. The Models 707B and 708B also support three other popular Keithley matrix cards. The Models 707B and 708B are ideal for semiconductor test system configurations that include Keithley’s Series 2600A System SourceMeter® instruments, the Model 4200-SCS Semiconductor Characterization System, and fully automated testers such as the S500 ACS Integrated Test Systems and S530 Semiconductor Parametric Test Systems.

The Models 707B and 708B incorporate a variety of features designed to help semiconductor manufacturers test faster, more flexibly, and more cost-effectively:
Choice of Remote Programming Options
New control options and interfaces in the Models 707B and 708B offer greater flexibility for configuring high performance switching systems:
Simple Integration with New or Existing Test Systems
In addition to their ease of integration with the Model 4200-SCS semiconductor parameter analyzer, the Models 707B and 708B work seamlessly with systems that incorporate Series 2600A instruments, such as Keithley’s S500 ACS Integrated Test Systems and S530 Semiconductor Parametric Test Systems. These mainframes share the same embedded TSP, Lua scripting language, and TSP-Link interface as the Series 2600A instruments and support the Model 7174A Ultra Low Current Switch Matrix, which complements the Model 2636A’s low current sensitivity.
