Pulse delay generator ideal for timing and synchronization
This pulse delay generator generates high frequency pulses, digital delays and bursts. It is an ideal synchronization and timing control instrument for electronics and lasers.
It is often used in fiber modulation setup with EOMs, AOMs or ALPhANOV new SOM technology. It is the most compact device with such performances and this makes it an ideal tool for OEM integration into your product. Applications of this pulse delay generator include component testing, laser timing control, laser pulse-picking and laser diode pulsing.
These products are now offered by AeroDIODE, a new ALPhANOV spin-off company. The product manager is available to answer any technical of commercial question.
