DAQ 6259


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.

Kindly reply as soon as possible.

Thanking you

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.
