FEMTO DDPCA-300 preamp kit/cable kit

The Femto DDPCA-300 Preamp kit combines the variable gain sub femto ampere amplifier Femto® DDPCA-300 with the adapter cable and software module to operate it directly from a Nanonis Mimea SPM Control System or a Nanonis Tramea quantum transport measurement system.

The amplifier gain is switchable between 104 and 1013 on the fly from the software which also takes care of the appropriate calibration of the input signal. The amplifier is powered directly from the stabilized ±15 Vdc power supply in the Nanonis SC5/TSC or SO5/TSO.

THe preamplifier is ideally suited for the measurement of very small currents, when bandwidth is not a priority.

The package includes: Femto DDPCA-300 variable gain preamplifier, adapter cable to power and control the preamplifier (includes a signal cable) as well as the necessary software module. For Nanonis Mimea, software control is integrated in the current module, which sets the amplification and the correct current calibration. For Nanonis Tramea, software control is integrated in the user inputs module, where gain, calibration and offsets can be configured. 

If a Femto DDPCA-300 preamplfier is already available, it is possible to order the cable kit and software module only, without the preamplifier.

Full specifications of the Femto DDPCA-300 are available on the Femto® website
