What does “Dual Lock-in Amplifiers” mean in the specifications?
QE-R has two independent lock-in amplifiers which are both two-phase (or dual-phase). By DSP IC technology, these two lock-in amplifiers can acquire DUT’s signals and Monitor detector signals simultaneously. The time delay between them is smaller than 1 ms which makes QE-R has the excellent repeatability ≥ 99.5%.
