Cleveland, Ohio - January 20, 2009 -
Keithley Instruments, Inc.
(NYSE:KEI), a leader in emerging measurement solutions, announces that its KTEI (Keithley Test Environment
Interactive) V7.1 software for the Model 4200-SCS (Semiconductor
Characterization System) has been named one of EDN magazine's Hot 100 Electronic Products of 2008. EDN's
editors compile an annual list of the year's 100 most significant electronic products, including integrated
circuits, components, computer boards, software tools, power devices,
test instruments, and more. The editors select products they consider innovative and newsworthy, representing
the best of the best of products and technologies announced during 2008.
KTEI V7.1 software
incorporates a number of innovative features and functions that broaden the capabilities of Keithley's Model
4200-CVU (Capacitance-Voltage Unit), most notably software support for characterizing high-power semiconductor
devices. This capability is useful for engineers working with automotive applications, display technology,
microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), and other high-power applications. KTEI V7.1 also adds software support for
other new functions, as well as a variety of software enhancements designed to speed and simplify testing.
Keithley's Model 4200-SCS is the most complete semiconductor characterization analyzer on the market,
making tough measurements easy and lowering the cost of test by protecting capital equipment investment. The
system replaces a variety of electrical test tools with a single, tightly integrated characterization solution and
is ideal for a wide range of applications, including semiconductor technology development, process development,
and materials research in reliability labs, materials and device research labs, and consortia, as well as any lab
needing a benchtop DC or pulse instrument. Keithley has continually enhanced the Model 4200-SCS's hardware and
software since its introduction. This commitment to ongoing system innovation assures a cost-effective upgrade
path, so users don't need to buy a new parametric analyzer because their current system is obsolete. Systems can
be upgraded cost-effectively to keep pace with the industry's evolving test needs, stretching capital investments
in the Model 4200-SCS even further.
