Agilent 8131A 500 MHz High-Speed Pulse Generator
No. of channels: 1ch
Pulse Width: 0.5ns
200 ps Transitions (HP 8131A)
The fast and linear transitions of the HP 8131A are specified from 10 percent to 90 percent of amplitude and therefore match advanced ECL and many GaAs devices. With a 50-ohm termination, the pulse shape is excellent. However, in practice the real load may be reactive or mismatched, causing ringing or reflections. Transition time converters are available to reduce these effects.
1 GHz Transducer Mode (HP 8131A)
This mode generates a fast-edge square wave up to 1 GHz for toggle rate testing. A sine wave froma signal generator is needed.
10 ps Timing Resolution
This is an order of magnitude higher than typical gate delays and hence eliminates window uncertainties.
5 V p-p Amplitude, 10 mV Resolution
Pulses can be set up from 100 mV to 5 V p-p in a +/-5 V window. This means that levels for all fast transistor technologies can be set up simply, even if a power splitter is required in the setup. 10 mv resol 1 GHz Transducer Mode
