Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR) Testing
Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) is a geophysical method that uses radar pulses to image the subsurface.
The performance of GPR is mainly determined by the pulse generator and evaluated by the resolution, detection distance and so on.
A pulse with narrow width, high repetition frequency and high amplitude usually brings a better resolution.
The PG-1500 Series allows to generate up to 50 Vpp pulses with a narrow width of 1 ns and a maximum repetition rate of 400 MHz.
- Earth science, military, vehicle localization applications
- Nondestructive (NDT) testing of structures and pavements
- Archeology and burial sites application
Newer technologies applied on the Non-Volatile RAM require faster pulses every day: Active Technologies Pulse Rider with transition time under 400 ps, an amplitude up to 50 Vpp, and a time resolution of 10 ps combined to the vertical resolution of 10 mV is the perfect choice for those kinds of requirements.
Developing modern MOSFET transistor, the challenge is to use high κ material for the dielectric in MOS capacitor, this give the advantage of reduce the leakage current through the isolator but at the same time, it causes some problem due to charge trapping. Short and Slow Pulses tests are fundamental techniques to study those kinds of problems.
The Active Technologies Pulse Rider PG-1500 Series pulse generators supply fast edges under 400 ps, a baseline offset of +-25 V and a pulse width from 1 ns up to 1 s, so it may be the ideal instrument to generate the pulses for Short and Slow Pulse tests.
- Non-Volatile Memory Cells Characterization
- Mosfet Test
- Short, Slow and Narrow Pulses tests
LiDAR Design and Advanced Research Applications
Nowadays automotive solutions need to create accurate and reliable tests to prove safety under a variety of test conditions is key: LiDAR is one of the strategic components for these kinds of solutions.
In big physics experiments, photomultipliers are fundamental since they allow to convert photons in electric charge that can be received by the acquisition system allowing the detecting photons.Using Active Technologies Pulse Rider PG-1500 Series pulse generators it is possible to generate a pulse with different width, period and amplitude used as a Laser Driver signal.
