The PDG-2515 is a precision digital delay and pulse generator providing two output channels, each with independently adjustable delay and pulse width, plus a Sync (T0) output. The accuracy, precision and flexibility of the PDG-2515 makes it well suited for use in laser timing, automated testing and precision pulse applications.
The Sync (T0) output of the PDG-2515 marks the beginning of a timing cycle, and is generated by the internal rate generator or in response to an external trigger. The delay and pulse width of the two outputs can be set from 0 to 99.9S relative to the T0 trigger with 25 ns resolution on its highest precision range.
The PDG-2515 can be triggered internally from 100 millihertz to 3MHz. Three digit frequency resolution up to 1MHz, frequency accurate to 2% above 1MHz. External, single-shot (front panel push-button) and burst mode triggers are also supported. In external trigger mode, the maximum trigger frequency is 5MHz.
Operating modes include continuous (pulse generator), pulse count, divide-by-N, burst and counted burst, providing flexible control of the pulse outputs. The output pulse waveforms may be inverted in all operating modes. Additionally, Output 1 can be internally set to utilize logical commands AND and OR in conjunction with Output 2. Output 2 may use the same functions based on Output 1 as well.
The PDG-2515 may be operated through its intuitive front panel controls. Up to five system configurations may be stored in internal non-volatile memory, providing instant recall of frequently-used configurations.
The versatility, ease of use and Sync (T0) of the PDG-2515
plus two independent outputs make it well suited for a wide variety of test and measurement tasks. It is also ideal for laser timing applications, in which the Sync (T0) output is used to trigger the pulsed laser and set the repetition frequency of the system. Delayed output 1 controls the laser Q-Switch, and output 2 can be used to synchronize other elements in the system, such as a detector or data acquisition hardware.
