Highland Technology has announced the T240 single-channel externally-triggered complementary-output pulse generator for driving electrical/optical modulators.
The T240 features programmable delay/pulse width in two ranges, from 100ps up to 25ns, and a programmable trigger threshold. It is controlled via USB, RS232, or trimpots, with optional SPI, and is powered by USB or standard 5V micro-USB power supply. Designed for driving E/O modulators, the T240 is also ideal for driving seed lasers in pumped fibre systems, RF applications including fast-pulse modulation, phase shifting, and harmonic generation. Other applications include time-domain device characterisation and modelling, semiconductor test, and system cable/timing trims.
