TTI TG5011 Arbitrary pulse generator

Manual
https://aismisc.cern.ch/aismisc/ess.file_utils.download_pooldoc_file?pooldoc_id_in=4458
This unit was used for testing the DelayWireChamber and general testing of other hardware. For the DWC, check the output voltage is 40 mV peak-to-peak. A 10kHz frequency is fine and the pulse should be ~40ns. Unfortunately the rise time + fall time must be less than or equal to the pulse width.

Note - this unit has a USB com port interface.

  • Used for event counting and vetoing trigger logic while an event is being processed. It has 4 channels with one trigger input and one busy output for each.
  • When it receives a trigger, it starts the BUSY. When SBC finished reading the events(readNextFragment), SBC clears the busy from Corbo, so that a new event can be read. Note that when CORBO is BUSY, it outputs a signal of 0V, when it is not BUSY, it outputs a signal of -0.8V (NIM level). So to veto a new trigger, one should input the busy signal in coincidence with the trigger, and take the output as the main trigger.
  • It can communicate with SBC via interrupts or SBC polling a memory location.

From the manual:
The oscilloscope inputs do not properly terminate low impedance cabling. To avoid amplitude inaccuracy from improper loading and reflections, place a 75 ohm feedthrough terminator (Tektronix part number 011-0055-02 or equivalent) between the 75 ohm coaxial cable from the signal source and the oscilloscope BNC input.
