The A includes four versions of the Kiethley system switch mainframe along with a growing family of plug-in switch and control cards. When the A mainframe is ordered with the high performance multimeter, you receive a tightly integrated switch and measurement system that can meet the demanding application requirements in a functional test system or provide the flexibility needed in stand-alone data acquisition and measurement applications.
To provide users with greater versatility when designing test systems, the A mainframes are equipped with many standard features. For example, easy connectivity is supported with three remote interfaces: This technology provides “smart” instruments with the ability to perform distributed processing and control at the instrument level versus a central PC.
The A builds upon Keithley’s tradition of producing innovative, high quality, precise signal switching. This series offers a growing family of high density and general purpose plug-in cards that accommodates a broad range of signals at very competitive pricing.

The A system supports applications as diverse as design validation, accelerated stress testing, data acquisition, and functional testing. This mainframe contains six slots for plug-in cards in a compact 2U high 3.
When fully loaded, a mainframe can support up to two-wire multiplexer channels or 2, one-pole matrix crosspoints for unrivaled density and economical per channel costs. The multimeter does not use a card slot, so you maintain all six slots in your mainframe.
In addition, the multimeter is wired to the mainframe’s analog backplane, ensuring a high quality signal path from each card channel to the multimeter.
The multimeter supports 13 built-in measurement functions, including: In-rack calibration is supported, which reduces both maintenance and calibration time. TSP technology enhances instrument control by allowing users the choice of using standard PC control or of creating 37066 test scripts that are executed keeithley microprocessors within the instrument.
By using TSP test scripts instead of a PC for instrument control, you avoid communication delays between the PC controller and instrument, which results in improved test throughput. Test scripts can contain math and decision-making rules that further reduce the interaction between a host PC and the instrument.
This form of distributed control supports the autonomous operation of individual instruments or groups of instruments and can possibly remove the need for a high level PC controller, which lowers test and ownership costs.
If your channel density requirements grow or if you need to process more signal types, use TSP-Link Technology to expand your system. Everything connected with TSP-Link can be controlled by the master unit, just as if they were all housed in the same chassis. This high speed system expansion interface lets users avoid the complex and time consuming task of expanding their remote interfaces to jeithley mainframe.
There is no need to add external triggers and remote communication cables to individual instruments, since all TSP-Link connected devices can be controlled from a single master unit. Test Script Builder is a software tool that is provided with all A instruments to help users easily create, modify, debug, and store TSP test scripts. The immediate window also allows users to see the output of a given test script and simplifies debugging.
All A mainframes contain a USB device port for easy transfer of readings, configurations, and test scripts to memory sticks. This port, which is located on the front panel, provides you with easy access to and portability of measurement results.
Simply plug in a memory stick and, with a few simple keystrokes, gain access to virtually unlimited memory storage. The built-in Web interface offers a quick and easy method to control and analyze measurement results.
Providing the finest test equipment solutions since 1992
Interactive schematics of each card in the mainframe support point-and-click control for opening and closing switches. A scan list builder is provided to guide users through the requirements of a scan list such as trigger and looping definitions for more advanced applications.
When the mainframe is ordered with the multimeter, additional Web pages keithey included for measurement configuration and viewing, including a graphing toolkit.
