Keithley Online Seminar Teaches Techniques for Making Error-Free Low I and High R Measurements

(PresseBox) (Cleveland, Ohio, ) Keithley Instruments, Inc., a world leader in advanced electrical test instruments and systems, will broadcast a web-based seminar titled "Techniques for Making Optimal Low Current and High Resistance Measurements" on Tuesday, October 27, 2011 at 15:00 CEST (UTC/GMT: 13:00). To register for this event, visit

Participants of the free seminar will learn basic techniques for making low current (<10nA) and high resistance (>1G?) measurements, which are required in a growing number of applications.

Fundamental techniques include choosing the appropriate instrumentation and cabling, as well as making the proper connections to the device. Measuring the offset current and determining the noise floor of the entire system are described in detail. Some of the many techniques and sources of error discussed include using appropriate settling time, electrostatic interference and shielding, leakage current and guarding, sources of external offset currents, and others.

Presented by Senior Staff Applications Engineer Mary Anne Tupta, the seminar is recommended for engineers, researchers, physicists, universities, and companies who need to make low current or high resistance measurements on devices and materials.
