The ORX555 is a Programmable Pulse Generator offering exceptional versatility, performance and precision.
Features of the ORX555
- 50MHz Frequency Range with 10Vp-p into 50Ω Output
- Variable Width and Delay with Variable Transitions
- IEEE488.2 and RS-232C, SCPI compatible
High Performance Pulses
The Model ORX555 features variable pulse widths from 10 ns to 10 s, delays from 0 ns to10 s with up to 6 digits resolution and adjustable output levels from -10V to +10V, with pulse amplitudes from 0.1V to 10Vp-p into 50 Ω load.
The Pulse Generator also features selectable complementary pulse and double pulse, in continuous, triggered, gated and counted burst modes.
The Model 555 allows selection of predefined amplitude and offset for critical stimulus and testing of major semiconductor technologies as TTL, CMOS and ECL.
To make operation flexible, variable transitions (rise and fall times) can be programmed from 5 ns to 100 ms. With the flexible transition times, various shapes of pulses can be obtained for applications where parameters such as linearity, switching times or reflection times must be analyzed.
Operational amplifiers slew rate can be measured or thresholds of devices and circuits can be easily tested using programmable rise and fall times.
Fast and Easy Operation
To make operation easy, Model ORX555 interface with the operator in a straightforward manner by which the front panel display always shows the parameter being varied and its value. If a new parameter just entered is not compatible with the existing setup status, the operator is informed by an error message. Test setups, up to 99 locations, can be stored and recalled. This feature allows simple test sequence development as well as no need for a controller in repetitive tests, with reduced bus traffic in ATE applications. Last user setup is also retained at power down.
The Pulse Generator ORX555 is self calibrating itself by means of internal time and voltage reference.
With no need to open the case, the Pulse Generator benefits of improved accuracy, extended calibration interval and low downtime.
The ORX555 has been designed for use in ATE systems. All parameters, modes and functions are programmable and fully compatible with IEEE-488.2 and the Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments (SCPI).
