Precision Premier II Ferroelectric Tester

Precision Premier II Ferroelectric Tester

 The Precision Premier II is an advanced tester that has a large test envelope in terms of frequency response, voltage range and accuracy. The Premier II has a fast hysteresis frequency rating of 250KHz at +/-10V built-in to the system.  The Premier II execute tests to 100 kHz below 10 Volts, making it useful for both bulk and thin film capacitors. The Premier II is capable of measuring thin ferroelectric film capacitors down to 0.1 square microns.  Using up to 32,000 points with 18-bit resolution.  The Precision Premier II II is offered with a variety of internal amplifiers.  The Precision Premier II is offered in a ±10V, 30V, 100V, 200V, and 500V built-in drive volt option.  The Precision Premier II can be expanded to 10kV with the addition of a high voltage interface and amplifier. The Premier II tester makes testing of  thin films  and bulk ceramics a fast and simple process.  

Includes Vision Data Acquisition and Management System Software

– A Library of 155 measurement, analysis, plotting, program control, and documentation tasks.

– An Editor to arrange multiple tasks together from the Library into a Test Definition.

– An Execution Engine to read and execute the Test Definition

– An amorphous database engine to Archive everything that happens in each Test Definition.

The Precision Premier II executes hysteresis, pulse, leakage, IV, and CV (and many other tasks) measurements without changing sample connections.  With the addition of extra fixtures, the Precision Premier II can measure pyroelectric properties, magneto-electric properties, transistor characteristics, cryogenic properties, bulk ceramic and/or thin film piezoelectric properties.  

Vision dramatically increases the productivity of the researcher, reducing the time required to acquire data in an experiment.  Vision’s enhanced productivity directly reduces cost of test.  Vision dramatically increases the complexity of the research that may be accomplished by allowing researchers to combine different measurement tasks with environmental controls into an automated test procedure managed by programmable logic embedded with automated data collection, analysis and plotting tools. 

Materials Testers running under the Vision Materials RDP Operating System reduces Cost of Test by a factor greater than 10 over any other ferroelectric tester.

Includes Vision Data Aquistion Software

Radiant’s Precision Line of Test Systems are driven by Vision Software. Vision is a revolutionary software package that provides exceptional freedom to design, conduct, and review all procedures associated with any material experiment. The Vision test environment will collect all data acquired in a test sequence and organize it in archived data structures along with the test sequence definitions and data analysis tools. The experiment can always be recalled or  reproduced. Data and test conditions can be shared over the Internet to allow collaborative research.
 Measurements include, but are not limited to - Hysteresis, Leakage, Charge, Retain, Resist, I/V, Fatigue, C(V), PUND, Imprint, Leakage Current, Remnant Hysteresis, Small signal CV, imprint, retention, and piezoelectric displacement from one hardware configuration.  Radiant offers optional Piezoelectric, Magnetoelectric, Transistor, and Pyroelectric software programs.
