Delay/Pulse/Frequency Generator T5200


Delay/Pulse/Frequency Generator T5200

Single PCI board for PC
Precisely controlled delay between the leading edges of output pulses
Precisely controlled width of pulses at a separate output
Time delay/width range: 10 ns – 10 seconds
Time delay/width resolution: 5 ps
Output pulses: positive, 2 V amplitude on 50 Ω load, rise- and fall time < 600 ps, selectable width
(10, 20, 50 or 100 ns) and polarity
Jitter: < 20 ps rms at time delay from 0 to 10 ms (TCXO)
Precisely controlled frequency of rectangular waveform at a separate output
Internal trigger generator with variable frequency
Clock generator: internal TCXO or OCXO (option S) or external 10 MHz reference clock
User-friendly software for Windows


Time Delay between the leading edges of two pulses appearing at the A and Boutputs or between the leading edges of two pulses appearing consecutively at the CW output in Common mode Pulse Width at the CW output in Width mode Frequency of rectangular waveform generated at the F output
