The AVR-E family offers medium-to-high voltage pulses with very fast rise and fall times.
The AVR-E5 series covers the pulse width range of 1 to 10 ns, with 50V maximum amplitude and a maximum repetition rate of 1 MHz.
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. A large backlit LCD displays the output amplitude, frequency, pulse width, and delay.
A delay control and a sync output are provided for scope triggering purposes. The units can also be triggered externally using a TTL-level pulse. Either output polarity or an optional dual output polarity can be provided. Polarity inversion in dual polarity units is accomplished by means of a two-position switch. A DC offset or bias insertion option is available.
