The AVI series provides high amplitude (as high as 100 Volts) flat-topped pulses with rise times as low as 200 ps and fall times of 2 ns.
The AVI-V family offers rise times of 350 ps, pulse widths variable from 2 to 100 ns, variable amplitudes to 50V, and pulse repetition frequencies up to 20 kHz. Models with -C or -B suffixes include an internal oscillator, whose PRF is variable up to 100 kHz (40V models), 20 kHz (50V models), or 5 kHz (100V models) using the front-panel controls. (The minimum PRF is 4 decades below the maximum PRF). A delay control and a sync output are provided for oscilloscope triggering. All models can also be triggered externally with a TTL-level pulse, at any PRF between 0 Hz and the maximum rated value.
Instruments with the -B suffix include a complete computer control interface. This provides GPIB and RS-232 computer-control, as well as front panel keypad and adjust knob control of the output pulse parameters.
