We report on the development of a modular system of high-frequency printed circuit boards (PCBs) for electrical low-noise characterization of multigate quantum devices. The whole measurement setup comprises PCBs operating from room temperature to a few kelvins, and custom software to control the broadband electronics held at cryogenic and room temperature. The PCBs coupling scheme and the custom tailoring of the user panel make our platform particularly flexible. At the cryogenic stage, one board hosts the electronics for readout. It consists in a custom complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor circuit for the current sensing. It is composed by a multiplexer for a digital selection of the device under test among up to four samples, connected to a cryogenic transimpedance amplifier with two possible gains, the maximum bandwidth of 250 kHz and the minimum equivalent input noise of 10 fA/√Hz.
