Technical Data


  • Five independent, digitally controlled, galvanically isolated electronic analog switches (signal switches) with pulse controller
  • Channels: 5× 800 V with fast drivers
  • System consists of:
    • Control: modular main device in a 19" case
    • Switches: PCB for mounting inside a vacuum chamber

Switch Channels

  • Maximum voltage across the switches: 800 V
  • 3 channels for positive voltages: rising edge < 3 ns
  • 1 channel for positive voltages: rising and falling edge < 4 ns
  • 1 channel for negative voltages: rising and falling edge < 4 ns

Pulse Controller

  • Controls 10 output channels and 3 DACs
  • Time resolution: 5 ns (coarse), 0.5 ns (fine)
  • Non-volatile memory for storing device configurations
  • Interface: USB for remote control and programming
