The AVP series of pulse generators offer the fastest rise times available in the Avtech product line, with rise times as low as 50 ps for 2V units, and 150 ps for 40V units.
The AVP-AV-1 family provides 100 ps, 10 Volts operation. The AVP-AV-HV2 family has peak amplitudes of 20V, pulse widths variable from 0.3 to 2 ns, with 100 ps rise times. These two families are also available in the computer-controllable “-B” format. (The rise times for “-B” models are 200 ps, and the minimum pulse width is 0.4 ns).
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.
