Pulse Generator


Specifications and Features of Precision Pulse Generators

A pulse generator is either a piece of electronic test equipment or an electronic circuit used to generate rectangular pulses. While pulse generators are used for a wide variety of applications, the majority are used as bench test equipment to improve logic circuits for diverse applications.

The pulses stimulate logic circuits. Implementation of the correct types of pulses requires a substantial proportion of adjustment, such as length, delay, and repetition rate. Many purposes of a pulse generator are comparable to those of an arbitrary waveform or function generator. As a result, uses overlap or intersect, making them multi-purpose test instruments.

Precision Pulse Generator Controls

Precision pulse generators mimic the form of a nuclear particle effect in a scintillation or semiconductor detector. It also operates as a functional pulse generator with pulse processing instrumentation application. It can be calibrated to register immediately in terms of equivalent energy deposition, and the rise time of the pulse may be altered to simulate the collection time constant in the detector. Producing the pulses via a mercury-wetted relay is possible by running it from the line frequency asynchronously. It also enables measurement of spectral broadening caused by rippling in the AC line. Other controls include:

  • Pulse height
  • Relay
  • Voltage
  • Rise time
  • Polarity

Measurement of a pulse generator's delay and rate is determined by a frequency or period adjustment using an internal or external trigger. As a leading manufacturer of pulse and digital delay pulse generator systems, Berkeley Nucleonics Corporation is committed to maintaining a tradition of technical excellence by meeting the needs for precision timing, detector systems, and signal analysis.
