In July 2011, GW Instek introduced the GDM-8261, a high precision 6 ½ digit digital multimeter with dual measurement displays, 11 measurement functions and 10 math functions at high accuracy (35ppm DC voltage accuracy).
Features and USP: The GDM-8261 adopts a scanner card, which carries 16 V channels and 2 I channels, to facilitate the measurements of multiple test points on either a device or multiple devices, all at a press of a button. It can be used as a semi-auto ATE system to increase the throughput of manufacturing tests or as a data logger to perform long-term monitoring or characterisation of a DUT. A PC software-based DMM viewer is available with GDM-8261 to support multi-channel panel setting and data logging of the scanner card. A LabVIEW driver is also supported to help users create their users’ own virtual instrument on the PC screen. For ATE system measurements or remote control applications, both USB and RS-232 interfaces are provided as standard, and either GPIB or LAN can be selected as the optional interface for the GDM-8261.
