Laser System Timing and Synchronization
The GFT1218 provides eight independent delay channels and one reference output. Lemo outputs deliver 10 Vpp into 50 Ohms with only a 3 ns rise time. In system mode, the module could be optical triggered by GFT3001 via an optical network.
The GFT1404 module is optical triggered by GFT3001 via an optical network. The GFT1404 module provides four independent delay channels (T0 to T3). The delay resolution is 1 ps, and channel to channel jitter is less than 50 ps. SMB outputs deliver 5 V, 2 ns rise time, under 50 Ω. Amplitude and width are adjustable on each output pulse. The GFT1404 also provides four auxiliary delay channels on the PXI bus (PXI trig 0 to PXI trig 3). The delay resolution is one time base period and trigger to channel jitter is less than 100ps.
BNC / GFTy has LabVIEW, Tango and Epics Drivers available. Here is an example of the GUI for the GFT1004 (controlling 8 units):
