With basic DC accuracy of 0.01%, the 8808A features a dedicated DC low-current leakage measurement capability. Its high-impedance input lets users take current measurements of less than 2000 μA with a resolution of 100 nA without loading the circuit under test. The meter also lets users perform four-wire measurements using only two leads.
