Described is a system consisted of Keithley’s current source Model 6221 and nanovoltmeter Model 2182A pairs. That pair was developed by Keithley for precise measurements of a sample’s one electrical parameter by the dc current-reversal transport technique. Nonstandard synchronization method employed in the presented setup allows assembling several pairs together for low level electrical measurements of a sample’s several parameters associated with the same current, thus expanding the applications of these devices. The equipment was tested by simultaneous measurements of such two parameters as transverse magnetoresistance and Hall voltage on the following materials: Si/SiGe, Ge:Mn; HgTe/HgCdTe, and InMnSb.
