Digital Delay Generator - 10 ps resolution - 15 ns insertion delay - 30 mV min input

This compact digital delay generator is intended for use in embedded OEM applications. It is an ideal tool for timing and gating of optoelectronics instruments such as cameras or lasers, or for applying picosecond-resolution time trims to special instruments.


This digital delay generator can also be used as a standalone generator, 150 MHz voltage level converter, AWG (Arbitrary Waveform Generator), frequency divider, Pulse-Picker or  burst generator.
It’s low minimum input voltage level and optional photodiode makes it an ideal tool for the synchronization of various instruments with a low level optical signal. Applications of this digital delay generator include component testing, camera synchronization, laser timing control and instrument gating.

These products are now offered by AeroDIODE, Logo_aerodiodea new ALPhANOV spin-off company. The product manager is available to answer any technical of commercial question.
