Keithley offers free, updated low-level measurement handbook

Cleveland, OH—Keithley Instruments Inc. has published an updated version of its popular reference book, 'Low Level Measurements Handbook: Precision DC Current, Voltage, and Resistance Measurements.'


Cleveland, OHKeithley Instruments Inc. has published an updated version of its popular reference book, ' Low Level Measurements Handbook: Precision DC Current, Voltage, and Resistance Measurements .' This 244-page sixth edition of the handbook describes theoretical and practical considerations involved in measuring low dc currents, high resistances, low dc voltages, and low resistances. The handbook is available at no charge by visiting or by calling 1-888-KEITHLEY.

A variety of chapters in the handbook have been updated to reflect new measurement techniques for making accurate electrical measurements on today's small devices, many of which are down to nano-scale geometries. Chapter topics discuss proper use and configuration of nanovoltmeters, picoammeters, electrometers, high resistance sources, and low resistance sources.

The handbook also contains an updated Instrument Selection Guide, glossary, and a valuable Low-Level Measurement Troubleshooting Guide. A completely new section deals with safety considerations when making precision electrical measurements.

With more than 50 years of measurement expertise, Keithley specializes in advanced electrical test instruments and systems, from dc to radio frequency, to meet the needs of electronics manufacturers for high performance production testing, process monitoring, product development, and research. Keithley also produces production test technology for the semiconductor, wireless, optoelectronics, and other precision electronics segments of the worldwide electronics industry.
