- Datasheet


The GFT1040 generator provides forty independent delay channels. It’s a system made with two synchronized GFT1020 unit. One unit is the Master and provides the triggers and the time base to other Slave unit.

The delay resolution on the standard unit is 100ps with an optional 1ps resolution. Channel to channel jitter is less than 25ps. In standard BNC outputs deliver 3ns/6V level into 50Ω. In option each output can be independently factory configured in 2.5 to 10V/1ns or 5 to 20V/5ns or 32V/5ns amplitude into 50 Ω.

Amplitude, polarity and Width are independently adjustable on each output pulse giving you complete time and amplitude domain control.

One input trigger (TRIG IN), or one of the three synchronized internal generators or command is used to trigger all output channels. A T0 output pulse marks zero delay for each trigger.

All parameters (delay/amplitude/width/trigger source for each channel …) may be local controlled over touch screen and remote controlled over Ethernet and Internet (Internal web server) interface (10 / 100 Mb/s).

The GFT1040 is well suited in Picoseconds Laser System to synchronize all the equipments and functions (Flaschlamps, Q-switches, high speed Cameras…) with only two compact units.
