TEKTRONIX Keithley KickStart Software version 2.11.0 includes enhancements to the Battery Simulator Application, with the ability to support the 2400 Graphical Touchscreen Series Source Measure Units (SMUs) and the 2600B Series SMUs. Simulator app provides users the ability to easily generate battery models, simulate batteries, and perform battery cycle tests for consumer wireless IoT devices, automotive and industrial applications. The list of enhancements to this specialty app gives users robust functionality as part of a ‘one-box,’ no code solution. The enhanced app, which supports various Keithley SMUs, also negates the need for using a 2380 electronic load to create a battery model and a 2281S battery simulator—saving the time, effort and cost that would be required to write a SMU custom script. Product boasts the capacity for a maximum of eight total instruments that can be controlled simultaneously, enabling battery testing through multiple charge and discharge cycles with access to a myriad of test cutoff conditions.
