Independent rise and fall time settings from 5 microseconds to 1 millisecond can be made either remotely or directly from the front panel providing users with the ability to optimize pulse performance for specific load characteristics including scientific experimentation, diode characterization and product quality applications.
With an 875-nm peak wavelength, the Avago HSDL-4260 provides typical 200-mW/sr on-axis intensity at 100 mA, a 15-degree viewing angle, and 15-ns optical rise and fall time.

This driver provides a propagation delay at 15ns with short rise and fall times and the tightest delay matching of 1ns for 12-V to 48-V DC/DC power supplies.
ROP calls upon citizens and residents to remain cautious and not to cross wadis during rain fall times unless they are sure of the water level and its strength.
EIT offers its UV Power Puck FLASH, a self-contained, electrooptic radiometer designed for use with pulsed type UV curing systems with fast advanced electronics capable of accommodating the very rapid rise and fall times of the pulse, integrating the total UV energy and displaying that information for each of the process-relevant UV bands.
To assert distributed (rather than lumped) effect, the capacitive loads need to be distributed uniformly, and the electrical delay between the neighboring loads should be less than the rise or fall times of the signal.
These signals display good rise and fall times, controlled overshoot and undershoot, and an acceptable amount of jitter, as evidenced by the width of each eye opening.
