Pulsed IV Systems

AMCAD Engineering's AM3200-Series Pulsed IV (Pulsed DC, Pulsed Bias) Systems


AMCAD Engineering has created professional, industry-proven pulsing technology for both standalone IV-testing (Pulsed IV, PIV) as well as pulsed-bias load pull (Pulsed Load Pull, PLP) and high-voltage power semiconductor applications. Systems come equipped with a mainframe controller which includes integrated power supplies. Input and output pulser modules (probes, pulsers) are selected for specific applications and are available in bipolar ±25V/1A and high-voltage 250V/30A models.
