This paper introduces a simple portable dual analyzer which allows real-time ac-impedance measurements and noise spectroscopic analysis simultaneously, employing one or two data acquisition systems together with a low noise current-to-voltage preamplifier. The input signal composed of numerous selected frequencies of sinusoidal voltages with a dc bias was applied to a device under the test (DUT): single walled carbon nanotube field effect transistors (SWCNT-FETs). Each frequency component, ranging from 1 to 46.4 kHz, was successfully mapped to a Nyquist plot using the background of the electrical noise power spectrum. It is, thus, clearly demonstrated that this dual analyzer enables the real-time ac-impedance analysis and the frequency response of the carrier transport in the SWCNT-FETs as a DUT.
