Boulder, CO — Picosecond Pulse Labs (PSPL) has introduced the 12000 series of pulse/pattern generators, which includes the Model 12000 165-MHz/20-Vpp, the Model 12010 800-MHz/2.5-Vpp, and the Model 12020 1.6-GHz/2.5-Vpp generator. Each of these instruments has fully programmable pulse and pattern capabilities with numerous user selectable modes of operation.

In addition, the 12000 series generators share a similar mechanical configuration and include both a front panel GUI interface and GPIB/USB programmability. Applications for the generators include serial data, semiconductor (e.g. pulsed IV device testing), and general purpose high-speed pulse testing.


The Model 12000 generator features up to 40 V output with programmable risetime and repetition rates from 1 mHz to 165 MHz (3 ns to 1000 s pulse duration). It offers extensive user programmability with adjustable risetime, amplitude, offset, period, duration, delay, load impedance, and source impedance (50 or 1k). In addition, the 12000 has the ability to perform channel add by summing the output of channels 1 and 2. It is available with either 1 or 2 channels configured for either rear or front panel output.

The 12010 and 12020 instruments feature extensive serial data testing capabilities, including an option for built-in jitter insertion, 16 Mbit of memory depth per channel, and spread spectrum clocking capability. The built-in jitter insertion option is a novel feature for a pattern generator in this price/performance range and it allows the user to test circuit response to intentional timing perturbations. These built-in jitter capabilities include multi-unit interval (UI) sinusoidal jitter, random jitter, and deterministic jitter injection. Both the 12010 and 12020 are available with either 1 or 2 output channels with or without jitter insertion capability.

Recently, Vishay made a non-binding, unsolicited proposal to acquire IR for $1.6 billion in stock. IR rejected that bid, but Vishay is moving full speed ahead with the proposed takeover plan.

Amid a lowered forecast by some–and a sudden slowdown for discrete semiconductors–Vishay has recently increased its bid to acquire IR for $1.7 billion.

Vishay has also proposed three new directors for IR. And Vishay has commenced litigation in the Delaware Chancery Court regarding the timing of IR's delayed 2007 and 2008 annual meetings and its proposed bylaw amendments.

IR has rejected that offer. But now, Vishay may increase its offer. ''We continue to believe our $23.00 per share cash offer represents full, fair and immediate value for International Rectifier stockholders,'' according to Vishay.

''We also continue to believe that our premium offer is far superior to what International Rectifier could hope to achieve on its own in the foreseeable future through execution of its three-year turnaround 'roadmap' that is, as a leading independent research analyst recently described it, 'too aggressive' and 'an optimistic outlook indeed,' '' according to the company.
