8131A Agilent Pulse Generator


The 8131A is a used Pulse Generator from Agilent. A pulse generator is a piece of electronic test equipment that engineers use to generate rectangular pulses. An electromagnetic pulse generator is best for digital, not analog, circuits. Engineers can inject pulses into a piece of equipment under test as a stimulus as they test the device, using pulses to confirm the equipment’s proper operation.

Additional Features:

  • 500 MHz, <200 ps fixed transitions
  • 10 ps timing resolution
  • Differential outputs: max. 5 Vpp into 50 Ohm

The Agilent 8131A delivers excellent performance to help you solve high-speed measurement problems. Quite suitable for BICMOS, ECL, and GaAs technology. Transition times of less than 200 pS enable repeatable and reliable timing measurements on high speed digital circuits. With the Agilent 8131A you can characterize components and circuits with repetition rates up to 500 MHz (to 1 GHz in Transducer Mode). The clean and sharp edges offered by this generator minimize errors due to threshold uncertainties. Features 10 pS timing resolution; 5 V amplitude and 10 mV resolution; fully HP-IB programmable.
