FORT COLLINS - IXYS Corporation (Nasdaq: IXYS), a leader in semiconductors, mixed-signal and digital ICs for power conversion and motion-control applications, announced the introduction of the PDG-2500 Handheld +5V Digital Pulse Generator by its Colorado division.

The PDG-2500 portable handheld pulse generator produces single-shot pulses from 8Ons to 1s in width and pulse frequencies from 5 Hz to 1 MHz.

The device features an intuitive touch screen interface to control both the high-resolution digital pulse generator as well as an additional user-adjustable voltage, variable from 0 to +5V DC.

The DC voltage can be used as a control voltage to set high-voltage power supply levels or other equipment parameters that are controlled with DC voltage, IXYS said.

In addition to touch screen user control, the PDG-2500 includes a USB computer interface for straightforward computer control and operation, the company said.

"The PDG-2500 is a rugged, handheld instrument that provides users with an easy-to-use, compact and portable dual-function pulse generator for lab, production floor or field uses," said Stephen Krausse, IXYS Colorado general manager.

"It is well-suited for gating, triggering and pulsing in laser, electro-optic, component test, chemistry and numerous other test-and-measurement applications that require precision high-speed pulses."
