BOULDER, Colo. -- Picosecond Pulse Labs, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-speed electronic components, today announced the availability of high-speed sampler technology using state-of-the-art Non-Linear Transmission Lines (NLTL). This technology is ideal for use in Ultra-Wideband (UWB) correlating receivers because it can achieve sampling rates in excess of 10 Gsample/s. The sampler is capable of an estimated risetime of approximately 3 ps which corresponds to a bandwidth in excess of 100 GHz. Picosecond’s sampler technology uses an extensive portfolio of internally developed intellectual property, patent applications for NLTL and sampler construction, exclusive license to patents owned by Stanford University, and extensive experience in sampler design. The components are fabricated at the company’s facility in Beaverton, Oregon, using a proprietary in-house GaAs/Thin Film process certified to ISO 9001 standards and optimized for sampler construction. "Picosecond’s sampler technology provides the UWB community with a critical capability needed to design millimeter wave receivers," stated Dr. John Ebner, R&D Engineering Manager for Picosecond Pulse Labs. “The samplers can be either stand-alone components or they can be packaged with strobe drive circuitry and IF signal conditioning for use in UWB correlating receivers,” said Dr. Ebner.Picosecond Pulse Labs Inc.
