What is pulse generator

TTL Pulse Generator

Often pulse generators are required to produce the TTL logic outputs. These generators may be referred to as TTL pulse generators. Their output levels will conform to the standard TTL levels of 0 and 5V. Although TTL levels are widely used and there are many different families of TTL circuits that have been used including […]

What is pulse generator

Pulse Generator Basics

Pulse generators are used to provide the pulses for use in the variety of electronic applications. Typically pulse generators will provide a number of functions and capabilities: Rectangular Wave Generation As the name implies the pulse generator is designed to produce pulses that are rectangular in nature, often capable of driving logic circuitry, although they […]

Multichannel Pulse Generators

Multichannel Pulse Generators

Some of the later pulse generators are what are termed multichannel pulse generators. These multichannel pulse generators can produce several channels of pulses with independent pulse widths and delays with independent outputs and even independent polarities. These pulse generators are often used for synchronizing, delaying, gating and triggering multiple devices often with respect to a […]
