Verifying Battery Performance through Charge/Discharge Cycling with a an SMU

November 13, 2015 // By Peter Bachmayr, Tektronix GmbH
Thanks to their precision, ease-of-use, and small rack space, source measure unit (SMU) instruments provide researchers and engineers with reliable battery performance test results quickly for improving their battery design. SMUs perform charge/discharge cycle tests for a wide variety of batteries while being able to source and measure current and voltage precisely. Having all required functionalities in just a single instrument simplifies the test setup, reduces programming time, and saves rack space.
