Agilent HP  Programmable Pulse GeneratorProduct Specs:The microprocessor based 8160A features a period range variable from 20 nS to 999 mS. Delay range can be set from 0.0 nS to 999 mS. Double pulse range is adjustable from 20.0 nS to 999 mS Pulse width can be varied between 10.0 nS to 999 mS. High and low output voltage ranges vary between -19.9 to 19.9 V depending on the source and load conditionsOther Info:The HP 8160A is a top quality programmable MATE-Approved Stimuli pulse generator. With a repetition rate of up to 50MHz and a 20 V output, the 8160A will meet all but the most demanding requirements. The HP 8160A is fully operable from the front-panel or via the HP-IB interface bus and can store up to 9 setups.

Alternative 8110A Pulse Pattern Generator, 150 MHz

The 8160A is a programmable pulse generator with applications as a bench instrument or part of an automatic test system. It is available with one (standard) or two (option 020) independent channels and can be rack-mounted with input/output connectors on the rear panel if required.

All parameters are indicated by an alphanumeric display above the keyboard. This eliminates both the need for an oscilloscope to monitor the output and the associated problem of misreading a parameter. All front panel controls are pushbuttons, thus outputs can be very easily and quickly set up.

All operations with the 8160A are microprocessor-controlled. This further simplifies operation whether performed from the front panel controls or programmed over the HP-IB. The microprocessor also enables sophisticated error detection routines to detect and display any incompatible pulse settings.
