Pulse Generator Boasts Ultra-Fast Rise Time

The Berkeley Nucleonics 765 pulse generator is promoted as the first analog edge converter with the ability to provide 5V pulses with less than 70-ps rising and falling edges. Available in two- or four-channel versions, the Model 765 offers a repetition rate of up to 240 MHz with a period jitter specification under 25 ps. The unit is controlled via a 7" 1024x600 capacitive touch LCD that runs Windows 10 OS.


The instrument’s hardware architecture can generate advanced pulse sequences such as double pulse or quad pulse with fully independent timing parameters. Signals can be generated quickly and adjustments can be made in real-time. Set-up is completed with just a touch, via HDMI or USB interfaces, or from an added keyboard or mouse.
