The Pulse Generator - an essential instrument
The generation of pulses for the stimulus and control
of electronic systems is beyond the capability of all but the most
sophisticated of function generators.
The architecture of a dedicated pulse generator
enables it to generate pulses of a set width regardless of the
repetition rate offering duty cycles which can extend down to 1 in 100
In addition to continuous operation, single or
multiple pulses can be generated in response to trigger or gating
signals with precisely defined timing relationships.
A dedicated pulse-waveform output amplifier provides
flat top pulses with fast rise and fall times at variable amplitude.

10MHz Pulse Generator
The TGP110 offers selectable delay between the sync output and
pulse output. In triggered mode this also sets the delay between
a trigger signal and the start of the pulse.
Wide pulse range
The TGP110 can generate pulse widths in the range 50ns to 5s.
There are eight overlapping decade ranges with vernier control
within each range.
The period range is 100ns to 10s, equivalent to a repetition
rate range of 10MHz to 0.1Hz. Delay is independently adjustable
over the same range as pulse width.
A complement switch inverts the mark-space polarity.
Squarewave and double pulse
In square mode, squarewaves are generated at a frequency set by
the period controls alone. This provides a convenient means of
generating variable period edges where the pulse width is
unimportant, for example. In double pulse mode, a second pulse
is generated within every period at a set delay after the start
of the first pulse. The delay is independently adjustable.
