We have designed, fabricated, and tested a low cost tunable narrow pico-pulse generator using a 60ps transition time step-recovery diode (SRD) device. Both the pulse duration and shape are electronically controllable using PIN diodes that are optimally connected in series. A simple concept of an input-matching network was developed and implemented that can significantly minimize pulse broadening and suppress pulse distortion. The developed pulse generator circuit has a wide adjustable pulse… CONTINUE READING
