Agilent 81100 Family of
Pulse/Pattern Generators
The Agilent Technologies 81101A
pulse generator belongs to the 81100
family. All members have the same
programming and user interfaces
that are compatible with the wellestablished Agilent 8110A. Migration
is therefore easy and cost effective.
Signals for testing digital designs
and components
The 81101A generates all of the
standard pulses needed to test
current logic technologies (CMOS,
TTL, ECL, etc.);
• Variable pulse parameters.
• Can be triggered in syncrony.
Glitch-free timing changes
Now you can sweep your timing values
without the danger of spurious pulses
or dropouts that could cause measurement errors (applies to continuous
mode, values < 100 ms, consecutive
values between 0.5 and twice the
previous value).
Reliable measurements
The 81101A provides clean, accurate
pulses with excellent repeatability,
thus contributing to measurement
integrity.
Easy to use
Features such as the clear graphical
display, autoset, help, store/recall,
preset TTL/ECL levels, selectable
units (such as current/voltage, width/
duty-cycle), and load compensation
ensure a high level of convenience.
Agilent 8110A user interface.
Variable transitions.
Up to10 Vpp (20 Vpp) into 50 Ω.
3.5 digits timing resolution, best
case 5 ps.
0.01% frequency accuracy.
Fully SCPI programmable.
Broad range of trigger and synchronization capabilities.
Dropout and glitch free change
of any timing parameters.
8.9 cm height, full rack width.
Graphical display.
Smooth integration into automated
test systems
The 81101A can be integrated easily
into all phases of test system development, such as planning, rack integration, and test program generation.
Test programs are 100% upwardly
compatible to the 81104A and 81110A,
ensuring that growth with future
needs is just as easy as exchanging
the instruments themselves. This
results in low integration costs, in
addition to low costs of ownership,
through proven hardware reliability.
Specifications
Specifications describe the instrument’s warranted performance. Nonwarranted values are described as typical. All specifications apply after a
30-minute warm-up phase with 50 Ω source/load resistance and separate
channels. All specifications are valid from 0°C to 55°C ambient temperature.
Timing Characteristics
Measured at 50% amplitude at fastest transitions, in continuous mode,

pulses, double pulses, bursts, or
patterns. The last single/double
pulse, burst, or pattern is always
completed.
External width: the pulse shape
can be recovered. Period and
width of an external input signal
is maintained. Delay, levels, and
transitions can be set.
Manual: simulates an external
input signal.
Internal triggered: internal PLL
replaces an external trigger
source. Pulses, double pulses,
bursts, or patterns can be set.
Strobe output and trigger
output
Strobe output: user-defined,
16 kbit pattern (NRZ) when in
pattern mode.
Trigger format: one pulse per
period with 50% duty cycle
typical.
External mode: 1.5 ns typ. for
HP 81110A. 5.9 ns typ. for
HP 81104A.
Level: TTL or ECL selectable.
Output impedance: 50 Ω
typical.

Transition times: 1.0 ns typical
for TTL, 600 ps typical for ECL.
User Interface
Overprogramming: all
parameters can be
overprogrammed (exceeding
specifications) to fully exploit the
hardware limits.
Setting check: warning
messages indicate potentially
conflicting parameters due to
inaccuracy. Error messages
indicate conflicting parameters.
Help key: displays a contextsensitive message.
Autoset key: resolves all timing
conflicts.
Non-volatile memory: current
setting is saved on power-down.
Up to nine user settings and one
fixed default setting can be stored
in the instrument.
Clear memory: clears all nine
user settings.
Memory card: 99 settings can be
stored on a 1 MB PCMCIA card
(MS-DOS®).
Remote Control
Operates according to IEEE
standard 488.2, 1987 and SCPI
1992.0.

The minimum configuration for a working instrument consists of a
mainframe and one output module. The second output module can be
added later. Output modules can be exchanged and retrofitted by the
user.
The English Quick Start Guide (81110-91010) and Reference Guide
(81110-91011) are supplied with each mainframe for all
configurations. A memory card is not included.
HP 81104A 80 MHz Pulse/Pattern Generator Mainframe
Output module:
HP 81105A 80 MHz, 10 V
HP 81110A 330/165 MHz Pulse/Pattern Generator Mainframe
Output modules:
HP 81111A 165 MHz, 10 V
HP 81112A 330 MHz, 3.8 V
Note: Only add together output modules of the same module number.
A combination of the HP 81111A and HP 81112A in one HP 81110A is
not possible.
All options are orderable with the HP 81104A and HP 81110A
mainframes.
