Keysight N2806A Calibration Pulse Generator Product Description

  • world’s fastest pulse generator with sub-7 ps fall times and sub-9 ps rise times
  • fully differential on two RF outputs; access the rising edge and corresponding falling edge simultaneously for differential step response measurements and TDR
  • included in the N2807A PrecisionProbe Advanced Kit for fast and easy insertion loss characterization and removal, up to 63 GHz on Keysight Infiniium oscilloscopes

The N2806A generates step pulses and square waves with sub-7 ps edge speeds in a remote head. Using a remote head allows the fast edge output to be connected directly to where it is needed as cables significantly decrease edge speed.

The differential high-speed electronics allow the N2806A to output very fast rep rates, never before seen in a pulse generator this fast. The RF output can generate square waves with sub-9 ps edge speeds up to 45 GHz. The N2806A produces a step with the greatest spectral purity and closest to ideal step response for repeatability, which is critical to demanding calibration and metrology applications.

The N2806A leverages Keysight’s microwave measurement expertise and proprietary InP technology to produce a differential amplifier capable of generating these waveforms. This capability represents a leap forward from the performance limited shockline architectures of existing pulse generators.
