Full Pulse Generator capabilities
Both models incorporate a pulse
generator mode which provides wide range pulse width and
delay independent of period.
Rise and fall times (edge speeds)
are also fully variable.
Pulse mode is in addition to
square wave mode
which offers a higher maximum frequency.
Wide-range repetition rate
models, the pulse period
can be set between 2000 seconds and 80ns (0.5mHz to
12.5MHz) with a resolution of 14 digits or one micro
On 25MHz models, the minimum
pulse period is 160ns (equivalent to 6.25MHz).
Fully variable pulse Width and Delay
Pulse width and pulse delay can be independently set to
a resolution of 10ns.
Minimum pulse width is 20ns and duty
cycles can be as low as one in two billion.
Independently variable Rise and Fall
The generators offer very fast edge speeds of better
than 8ns on 50MHz models or 13ns on 25MHz models, but the edges can be slowed down to simulate
Rise and fall times are independently
variable in the range 5ns to 40us (10ns to 40us on 25MHz
models) or can be linked so
that both edge speeds are the same.
Trigger, Burst and Gate
Read more ...
As with all other waveforms, pulses can be triggered
from an external trigger input (or manual trigger, the
internal trigger generator or a Bus command).
Burst mode creates a burst of between one and a million
pulses in response to each active edge of the trigger.
Gated cause pulses to be generated
only when the gate signal is true. The gate source can
be external or internal exactly as the trigger signal.
