Lake Shore M81-SSM Synchronous Source Measurement System

An Innovative architecture for coordinating low-level measurements from DC to 100kHz






The MeasureReady™ M81-SSM (Synchronous Source and Measure) system provides a confident and straightforward approach for advanced measurement applications. The M81 is designed to eliminate the complexity of multiple function-specific instrumentation setups, combining the convenience of DC and AC sourcing with DC and AC measurement, including a lock?in's sensitivity and measurement performance.


This extremely low-noise simultaneous source and measure system ensures inherently synchronised measurements from 1 to 3 source channels and from 1 to 3 measure channels per half-rack instrument - while also being highly adaptable for a range of material and device research applications.


Unique real-time sampling architecture for synchronous sourcing and measuring

  • MeasureSync™ technology for simultaneous source module update and measure module sampling timing across all channels
  • DC/AC amplitude and phase detection is user-selectable on all measure channels
  • Common DAC/ADC sampling clock ensures highly precise and consistent source/measure timing coordination between 3 sources and 3 measures

Designed for scientific-grade low-level measurement applications

  • 100% linear module power supply architecture for lowest possible source/measure noise
  • Fully linear signal path between data converters, modules, and the device under test (DUT)
  • Remote modules for the shortest possible signal path to the DUT, which separates sensitive analog circuits from digital circuits and unwanted sources of interference typical of traditional single-enclosure instrument designs

The absolute precision of DC plus the detection sensitivity performance of AC instrumentation

  • All source and measure channels are capable of DC and AC to 100 kHz signals
  • Optimised for fundamental, harmonic, and phase AC plus DC biased measurements
  • Modularity allows for flexible, user-configured modules to suit a specific application

Unique, flexible instrument/distributed module architecture

  • Remote-mountable amplifier modules are interchangeable between instruments
  • Modules are dynamically recognised when the system is reconfigured
  • Uses a clean, simple UI and a common programming API for fast setup and a shorter learning curve
