Board-Level Digital Delay and Pulse Generators with Picosecond Timing

San Rafael, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2013

Berkeley Nucleonics Corporation (BNC Corp, San Rafael CA), an equipment manufacturer in Northern California, has released a new family of Board-Level DDGs and Pulsers for OEM applications in timing, gating, synchronizing and delaying experiments. The new family includes cPCI, VXI or custom PCBs to meet demanding OEM space, power or cost constraints.

The Model 598 cPCI Digital Delay Generator is one of the most popular card level units, offering system integrators eight independent delay channels per card with timing in the single digit picosecond domain. The power is drawing from a common backplane and a standard GUI allows control of many modules. This architecture avoids the need for multiple power supplies and front panel controls.

The jitter on the BNC Board Level DDGs is industry lowest, with a remarkable <15 picosecond delay jitter in short delays. Typical cards include LEMO outputs to deliver signals with precision timing at adjustable amplitudes from 2.5V to 10.0V into 50 Ohm impedance. There is an input connector on the cards also, allowing systems integration with external triggering (To, zero delay). In addition to an external trigger, we offer a stabilized internal clock that can be used to trigger the delay generator.

A move toward modular architecture is prevalent in the test equipment community as instrumentation offers more flexible software control options. Experiments can be executed from remote locations or using robots or complex control systems. The need for a front panel or local control of the pulse and delay generators is typical for the benchtop researcher, but not for the industrial user., commented Robert Corsetti, Sales and Marketing Director. Our custom board designs are addressing an exciting new market of embedded applications.
