Keithley 590 C-V Analyzer

  • Test Signal Voltage of 15mV rms
  • 0.1f Sensitivity to Test Small Devices
  • Measures Capacitance and Conductance
  • 100kHz, 1MHz, or 100kHz/1MHz Test Frequencies
  • Ranges up to 20 nF


The Keithley 590 C-V Analyzer is used to measure capacitance versus voltage and capacitance versus time characteristics of semiconductor devices. The 590 C-V Analyzer, unlike other capacitance measurement instruments, has been tailored to the requirements of semiconductor device testing. The 590 C-V Analyzer offers a choice of 1 MHz frequency for compliance with existing test standards or 100kHz for improved resolution, range, and accuracy. Optimized for better performance and accuracy, the 590 C-V features a selectable measurement rate, varying between 1 and 1000 readings per second, and a filter to optimize speed and resolution trade offs. The 590 C-V offers sophisticated correction for transmission line errors due to device connections, as well as featuring a built-in test setup and correction value storage, analysis, and plotter control to minimize computer programming.

The 590 C-V's ability to measure both capacitance versus voltage and capacitance versus time makes it ideal when determining characteristics such as semiconductor doping profiles, threshold voltage, oxide characteristics, mobile ion density, interface trap density, and minority carrier life-time.

Product Family: 590 CV, 590 C-V, 590C-V, 590/100k/1M, 590/100k, 590/1M, 590-100k-1M, 590-100k, 590-1M, 590/100k/1M/4

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.

Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive.
With InstraView™, we move you one step closer to inspecting the equipment you're interested in without having to wait for the equipment to show up at your door.

InstraView™ works in your web browser and allows you to view the actual piece of equipment you're interested in before purchasing. You can zoom in close to see the labels with the serial number or zoom out to see the overall condition of the equipment.

It's like having the store come to you!

InstraView Request Form

To get started:

  1.   Fill in the request form below
  2.   We'll send you an email letting you know exactly when your piece of equipment will be available for viewing
