Pulsed IV Systems

AMCAD Engineering's BILT Pulsed IV (Pulsed DC, Pulsed Bias) Systems


AMCAD Engineering has created professional, industry-proven pulsing technology for both standalone IV-testing (Pulsed IV, PIV) as well as pulsed-bias load pull (Pulsed Load Pull, PLP) applications. Systems come fully equipped with a common 19" rack mountable mainframe controller which includes five integrated power supplies. Pulse heads are selected for the specific application and are available in 15V/200mA, 120V/30A and 250V/10A models.

Pulsed IV Systems

Key Features

  • high-precision 200mA, high-power 10A or 30A pulse generation
  • Pulse width down to 200ns
  • High precision current and voltage measurement
  • Synchronized pulsed S-parameter measurements
  • Embedded fast short-circuit current breaker, performing the protection of the internal probe circuitry at device breakdown
  • Embedded fast measurement samplers:
  • fast average and ripple acquisition for highest signal to noise ratio, 16 bit compliant
  • Pulse shape monitoring equivalent to a 50M sample/s scope, 8 bit resolution
  • Fast acquisition of a complete power sweep, useful for Load Pull test bench
  • Pulse and measurement clocks are both available in stand alone or external triggered mode
  • Set of resistive network to improve measurement accuracy
