Abstract
Simple method of Keithley 2001 multimeter resistance measurement range extension towards low resistance is presented. Extension was accomplished by test current increase. The test current was increased by one hundred times and resistance measurement resolution was increased from 1 μΩ to 10 nΩ. But this is not hardware limit of this method. Real limit of test current increase and resistance measurement range extension is heating of the object under measurement. The method is cost effective. It needs only a stable current source and a simple switch.
