Highland Technology announces 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 100 picoseconds FWHM 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 5-volt micro-USB power supply.
Designed for driving E/O modulators, the T240 is also ideal for driving seed lasers in pumped fiber systems, RF applications including fast-pulse modulation, phase shifting, and harmonic generation. Other applications include time-domain device characterization and modeling, semiconductor test, and system cable/timing trims.
