20A Sources and Source/Measure Units from Vektrex are versatile pulsed/DC instruments that support component testing, reliability testing, and other test applications.
Pulse precision, lack of duty cycle limitations, and simplified output wiring make these ideal foundation instruments for reliability test systems, automated component test systems, interactive optoelectronics R&D benches, or in-house calibration stations for LED, Laser Diode, VCSEL and other semiconductor devices.
These cost effective tools are available in single or multichannel modules and at other power levels.
20A SpikeSafe Source Measure Unit and Specifications
The 20A SpikeSafe Source Measure Unit (SMU) is an award-winning High Current SMU; a member of the SpikeSafe Source Measure Unit Family. Like other Vektrex SMUs output pulses have nanosecond rise and fall times – key to precise and repeatable LED, LIDAR, and VCSEL photometric and electrical measurements. This pulsed high current SMU supplies precision DC, continuous pulse, and single pulse current with excellent pulse fidelity
20A SpikeSafe Performance Series Precision Pulsed Current Source and Specifications
The SpikeSafe™ 20A Performance Series Current Source is considered by some to be a current pulser. A member of the SpikeSafe Performance Series Precision Pulsed Current Source Family, output pulses have fast rise and fall times – key to precise and repeatable LED, LIDAR, VCSEL photometric and electrical measurements. This pulsed current source is available in single and multiple channel models.
20A SpikeSafe DC / Continuous Pulse Current Source and Specifications
The SpikeSafe™ 20A DC / Continuous Pulse Current Source is part of the SpikeSafe DC / Continuous Pulse Current Source family. This programmable source is optimized for LED, Laser Diode, or VCSEL reliability, burn-in, IESNA LM-80, and other high-power/high-capacity test applications requiring DC or pulsed current.
20A DC Current Source and Specifications
The SpikeSafe 20A DC Current Source is part of the SpikeSafe DC Current Source family. This current source supports LED reliability, burn-in test, IESNA LM-80 and other applications requiring multiple drive channels.

20A Reliability/Burn-In System
Vektrex Reliability Systems are for client needs using SpikeSafe modules as the foundation. SpikeSafe modules are precision pulsing current sources that form a reliable, high-quality foundation for LED and laser diode test systems.
Video: Use a Source Measure Unit for “Crazy Stable” Measurements
Vektrex claims the SpikeSafe Source Measure Unit produces “crazy stable” measurements. In this video, we compare the voltage measurements of the Vektrex SpikeSafe SMU’s internal digitizer with those of the Keithley DMM7510 on the same load – paying close attention to the stability of the entire Vf pulse capture from each unit.
Vektrex designs and manufactures high-performance LED/VCSEL/LIDAR test solutions for leading manufacturers and standards labs worldwide. See this page to preview a comprehensive listing of videos made by Vektrex to help you better understand your current source.
Python API and Examples
Python API and examples allow you to worry less about the code and more about the science of LED and Laser testing. Vektrex offers many options to quickly automate testing of LEDs and Lasers.
