Introduction

In today's semiconductor market, instruments such as voltmeters, ammeters, ohmmeters, multimeters, and AC/DC power sources are commonly used for testing. Engineers and technicians use these instruments to test transistors, capacitors, diodes, and many other semiconductor parts and devices.


The Agilent U3606A Multimeter/DC Power Supply represents a new generation of instruments, providing 5- 1/2 digit display and 30 W DC power supply functions. It is specifically built for applications that require multimeter and DC power supply concurrently while elevating performance to the next level. Combining two instruments into one will free up your work space on the test rack and bench, while lowering cost. The combined approach also allows a single connection, rather than two separate connections from the multimeter and DC power supply to your PC. Hence, when programming remotely, the possibility of connection errors are lower.


Since a digital multimeter and a DC power supply are required to carry out tests on a Zener Diode and a DCto- DC converter, the U3606A is the best choice for this application...
