The BME_SG08p PCI delay generator has 6 outputs generating signals delayed from 50nsec to 429sec, in steps of 25 picoseconds, with respect to a trigger event. The trigger event can be generated by an internal counter or by an external signal fed to the trigger input connector.
The BME_SG08p can achieve repetition rates between 0.002Hz and 15MHz.
A trigger circuit starts the delay counters. There are 6 counters, A, B, C, D, E and F.
Two different output modes can be selected:
– Pulse-Mode: a delayed pulse of specified pulse-length
– Gate-Mode: the outputs A and B can be combined to form a gate signal, i.e. a rising(falling) edge after delay A has elapsed and a falling(rising) edge after delay B has elapsed, so you get an pulse with a variable(25ps resolution) pulse-width from 2ns to 429s.
The BME_SG08p card synchronizes the delayed ouputs to an external trigger with an RMS Jitter of less than 250ps.
An external clock can be fed to the external trigger input connector, which can additionally be gated and prescaled.
If more than 6 outputs (or more than 3 gate outputs) are needed, two ore more cards can be slaved with a ribbon-cable, resulting in 12 or more synchronous delayed outputs.

It is also possible to fire an interrupt with the main trigger of the delay generator(s), or after a fixed number of triggers has occurred.
