Digital Delay / Pulse Generators Solve Complex Timing Applications in Canada

Berkeley Nucleonics Corporation (San Rafael, CA) was awarded a recent contract to deliver precision timing solutions to Polytechnique Montreal, a teaching and research institution in Canada. The institution is widely recognized for it’s ground-breaking engineering research, graduating 600 engineers per year in fields ranging from robotics to 3D Modeling to geothermal engineering. Berkeley Nucleonics has been a supplier of timing technology since the early 60’s and offers constant innovation for research in the field of femtosecond timing and low jitter signals.

The latest Digital Delay / Pulse Generators being supplied to Polytechnique were chosen because of their ability to address several applications in a user-friendly benchtop platform. Independent channel capabilities in the Berkeley Nucleonic instrument, such as amplitude and time domain controls coupled with electrical and optical output functionality, ensure a broad range of tests can be accomplished efficiently.

At the heart of the timing systems offered by Berkeley Nucleonics, a digital control system is married to an analog front end to provide ultra-high performance signal control. The software, packaging and power for the systems are user-customizable with application specific constraints being addressed. The timing solutions are scalable also, with up to 200 channels of femtosecond timing controlled from a single interface and synchronized to a single clock.

“It is an honor to be selected, time and time again, by the top research organizations worldwide”, comments Junior Choe, Product Manager for Timing Systems. “Our Canadian and European Manufacturer’s Representatives provide local application support also.”

About the Company –
Berkeley Nucleonics Corporation is a manufacturer of precision instrumentation for Test, Measurement and Nuclear Detection Systems. The company was founded as a spin-off of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 1963 and has pioneered timing systems from it’s onset. New developments in low jitter designs, femtosecond timing, RF and Microwave Signal Generators and wide-band spectrum analysis have positioned the company at the cutting edge of signal generation and analysis.
