  • Photon-/Ion- counting
  • Wideband signal processing

 

DESCRIPTION
The TA2400 is a fast pulse preamplifier with a small signal bandwidth of 2.4GHz. A unique feature for such high speed amplifiers is the DC coupling. DC coupling avoids count rate effects due to non DC balanced pulse trains and the corresponding coupling capacitor charging.
