We are planning to conduct an experiement using NI-DAQPAD-6259 .Is it possible to synthesis 1ns pulse to trigger a Semiconductor Optical Amplifier(SOA) using above mentioned DAQ. We are using SOA 1013S. If it is possible what is the rise time and fall time of the trigger pulse.
A pulse *width* or *period* of 1 nanosec? Nope, not possible. The internal timebase is (likely) only 80 MHz and you'd need to generate at 1 or 2 GHz to get a pulse of 1 nanosec width or period respectively.
