The AVR-EB series was designed for MIL-STD-750E diode switching time tests. The AVR-EB4-B is intended for reverse recovery testing of high-speed power rectifiers. The similar AVR-EB5-B is intended for more specialized reverse recovery testing of long-lifetime high-voltage PIN diodes, and the AVR-EB7-B is intended for low-current small-signal diodes. The current waveforms generated by these instruments are suitable for MIL-STD-750E Method 4031.4 Test Condition B tests.

Prices - USA and Canada
Standard US/Canada prices are listed below. We can also provide you with a formal quote.
|Semiconductor Test Pulser||AVR-EB7-B
||Base model. Units with the -B suffix include the IEEE-488.2 GPIB and RS-232 computer control feature and a 2m/6ft GPIB cable. Includes one AVX-TRR-MIX test jig, unless otherwise specified.|
|Ethernet port, for remote control using VXI-11.3, ssh, telnet, and web||-VXI||$0||Option. Standard feature for orders after Jan 14, 2019 - it is no longer necessary to specify this option. Adds a rear-panel Ethernet connector, allowing the instrument to be remotely controlled using the VXI-11.3, ssh (secure shell), telnet, and http (web) protocols. In particular, the VXI-11.3 features allows software like LabView to control an instrument using standard VISA communications drivers and network cabling, instead of using old-style GPIB cabling. (This eliminates the need for a GPIB controller card and its proprietary drivers.).|
|Provide a Certificate of Conformance||-CC1||$106||Option.|
|Provide an installed IUID-format label||-ID1||$106||Option. Label only. Does not include data registration. Records the manufacturer CAGE code, the instrument serial number, and the model number.|
|Rack Mount Kit||-R5||$322||Option. For 17-inch-wide models only. Check datasheet for instrument dimensions. (All -B units are 17 inches).|
|Extra GPIB cable, 1 meter||-X1||$53||Option.|
|Extra GPIB cable, 2 meters||-X2||$75||Option.|
|Extra GPIB cable, 4 meters||-X4||$97||Option.|

|ATA shipping case||-ATA3||$1398||Option. Ships the instrument in a heavy-duty ATA-style transport case, instead of the normal cardboard box. It can also serve as a storage case. This option is recommended for shipments outside of North America and Europe, and is mandatory when using a freight-forwarder or when shipping by any method other than FedEx/UPS. It is strongly recommended for all shipments to China. Pelican model 1690 for full-rack-width (17 inch / 430 mm) units, including all -B units. Pelican model 1610 for half-rack-width (8.5 inch / 215 mm) units. This option increases the shipping weight by 45 lbs / 20 kg (1690) or 24 lbs / 11 kg (1610).|
|Ship to USA or Canada, on Avtech FedEx Priority account||$0||Included in base price.|
|Ship globally, on customer FedEx or UPS account||$0||Excludes Austria, China, The Czech and Slovak Republics, Germany, India, Japan, Korea, Switzerland, Taiwan and Turkey. Consult your local representative for pricing.|
|Ship globally, on Avtech FedEx Priority account||Contact Avtech for pricing.||Excludes the above countries.|
|Ship globally, using a customer-specified freight forwarder||Contact Avtech for pricing.||Excludes the above countries. Not recommended. Due to the increased likelihood of shipping damage, the -ATA3 option (heavy-duty ATA shipping case) is mandatory for -PS, -C, and -B models.|
These prices are in U.S. dollars, and apply only to orders placed directly with Avtech from the United States and Canada. Reseller prices may be higher. A 5% academic discount is available for North American universities. Orders are non-cancellable, non-returnable.
