Berkeley Nucleonics New Timing Controller for Laser Systems with 5ps Jitter and 20 Channels

Berkeley Nucleonics will release the Model 745-20C-T Digital Delay Generator in time for FY13 budget constraints. The 20 Channel Pulse/Digital Delay Generator represents the most exciting advancement in timing solutions since the company entered the femtosecond timing domain in 2011 with the Model 745-GOC.

Berkeley Nucleonics will release the Model 745-20C-T Digital Delay Generator in time for FY13 budget constraints. The 20 Channel Pulse/Digital Delay Generator represents the most exciting advancement in timing solutions since the company entered the femtosecond timing domain in 2011 with the Model 745-GOC. The Model 745-20C-T also delivers touch-screen convenience to the pulse/delay generator user community.

Each channel has resolution of 100ps with jitter of 5ps. The channels can be synchronized to a master clock anywhere between 10 MHz and 100 MHz, making the instrument suitable for mode–locked laser applications. Channels can be triggered from one or several sources (user selectable). A handy front panel touch-screen control and remote ethernet control (with embedded HTML GUI) make operations snappy.

“At first glance, 20 channels may seem like overkill,” explains Applications Manager Mark Slattery. “However when a timing controller for a laser system uses the laser system’s master oscillator as its clock, the subsequent jitter of its channels are greatly reduced.” The company points out that there are many devices that could be subsequently timed from a single instrument, including pump lasers, Pockels cells, Q-switches, shutters, and data acquisition devices. Diagnostics in larger systems are also timed and gated.

The small size and variety of channel options give users plenty of excitement. Instead of stacking multiple digital delay generators in a rack (or two), 20 channels in a 2U enclosure (2U is roughly 3.5 inches or 89mm) will save considerable rack space. Optical outputs, higher voltage outputs and 250 fs resolution are added options.

Another added function is Trigger Select. Users may now group channels or DUT instruments to perform complex triggering and gating sequences. You can select the triggers for each channel, thereby grouping channels that operate from a specific trigger. Triggers can be an external trigger, a remote trigger, or one of three internal frequency triggers.

The company offers evaluations and online or phone support as needed. Additional tutorials and product introductions are also available on BNC-TV, the company YouTube Channel.
