AVRQ-5-B Semiconductor Test Pulser

The AVRQ-5-B provides 1.5 kV pulses with linear leading edges, followed by a slower exponential decay back to zero. The transition time (10%-90%) of the leading edge is less than 10 ns into a non-capacitive load, providing transition rates of up to 120 kV/us. The transition time may be increased up to 50 ns by adding capacitance across the load. The fast transition rates make the AVRQ-5-B ideal for testing the common mode transient immunity of cutting-edge optocouplers and other devices.

Base Model P/N Price Notes
Semiconductor Test Pulser AVRQ-5-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.
Amplitude Options
Finer Amplitude Control -AHV $1698 Option. + or -, 1.0 to 1.5 kV, in ≤ 1V steps. No change in rise time specification.
Finer Extra-High Amplitude Control -XHV $2498 Option. + or -, 1.5 to 2.0 kV, in ≤ 1V steps. The minimum leading edge rise time increases by 5 ns.
Connectivity Options
Ethernet port, for remote control using VXI-11.3, ssh, telnet, and web -VXI $898 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.)
Extra Documentation
Provide a Certificate of Conformance -CC1 $0 Option.
Provide an installed IUID-format label -ID1 $0 Option. Label only. Does not include data registration. Records the manufacturer CAGE code, the instrument serial number, and the model number.
Miscellaneous Options
Front Panel DUT Area -FPD $1498 Option. Moves the DUT area (with hinged door) and HV PULSE connector from the rear panel to the front panel, for more convenient access. The overall height of the instrument is increased (from 3U to 5U in rack units) to accommodate the change. The DUT area is in the lower 3U, and the instrument controls are in the upper 2U. Must be ordered with the -ATA3 option for safe shipping.
Higher PRF -HF $498 Option. Boosts maximum PRF from 10 Hz to 1 kHz
Rack Mount Kit -R6 $298 Option. For "3U" height instruments only.
VCC2 BNC Connector -V2 $498 Option. Adds a BNC connector on which VCC2 may be monitored (wired in parallel with the VCC2 connection on the DUT socket)
Extra GPIB cable, 1 meter -X1 $49 Option.
Extra GPIB cable, 2 meters -X2 $69 Option.
Extra GPIB cable, 4 meters -X4 $89 Option.
AC Power Cords
Power cord for United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia -AC00 $0 Option. BS 1363, 230V, 50 Hz.
Power cord for Australia, New Zealand -AC01 $0 Option. AS 3112:2000, 230-240V, 50 Hz.
Power cord for Continental Europe, Korea, Indonesia, Russia -AC02 $0 Option. CEE 7/7 Schuko, 230V, 50 Hz.
Power cord for North America, Taiwan -AC03 $0 Option. NEMA 5-15, 120V, 60 Hz.
Power cord for Switzerland -AC06 $0 Option. SEV 1011, 230V, 50 Hz.
Power cord for South Africa, India -AC17 $0 Option. SABS 164-1, 220-250V, 50 Hz.
Power cord for Japan -AC18 $0 Option. JIS 8303, 100V, 50-60 Hz.
Power cord for Israel -AC19 $0 Option. SI 32, 220V, 50 Hz.
Power cord for China -AC22 $0 Option. GB 1002-1, 220V, 50 Hz.
Shipping Case
ATA shipping case -ATA3 $898 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).
Shipping Method
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. First-time customers ordering customized models are required to pay 33% in advance (at least 2 weeks prior to shipping, preferably by bank transfer), and the remaining 67% within 30 days of the ship date. Both payments are non-refundable.

Prices - International

Customers in Austria, China, The Czech and Slovak Republics, France, Germany, India, Japan, Korea, Switzerland, Taiwan and Turkey should contact their local representative for pricing. International prices will be somewhat higher than the USA/Canada pricing shown above, depending on local documentation requirements, customs and shipping procedures, and other regulatory issues (for example, the European WEEE directive).

Customers in other countries should contact our Canadian headquarters directly for pricing. Avtech can ship internationally by FedEx (preferred), UPS, DHL, or Bax Global.
