How to Test Your Device with Very Fast Pulses

May 5, 2020
Some of today’s “hottest” applications require the use of devices that operate with pulse widths of a few nanoseconds and rise times of less than 1 ns. Learn how to generate pulses as short at 10 μs in this application note.

Learn new techniques to optimize cable connectivity to generate clean 10 μs pulses in this application note.  You’ll see how new pulse technology requires no tuning for any kind of device as long as the unit is operated within its specification. The result is a convenient solution for using high current pulse measurement and low current DC measurement together without changing connections.
