Product Description

Our Model 4016 Pulse Generator is one of the world’s fastest, commercially available, high amplitude electrical pulse generators.

The Model 4016 Pulse Generator produces an ultra-fast pulse of -5 V with less than 5 ps falltime into an AC or DC coupled 50 Ohm load. The <5 ps, -5 V pulse is generated in a small external pulse head that is attached to the main unit via a coaxial cable. This allows the pulse head to be directly connected where it is needed, eliminating the risetime slowing effects of interconnecting coaxial cables. A 2 V, 18 ps impulse can also be generated with the 4016 by attaching the optional Model 5208 Impulse Forming Network to the pulse head output. If two 5208s are connected in cascade, a 1.3 V, 12.5 GHz monocycle will result.
