PSPL5208, PSPL5210 Impulse Forming Networks Datasheet
The PSPL5208 and PSPL5210 components are proprietary, passive Impulse Forming Networks (IFNs).
These PSPL5208 and PSPL5210 have the unique property of providing an output that is approximately the derivative of the input waveform while also maintaining an excellent impedance match on all ports.
V(out) ≈ Tc * dV(in) / dt
Where Tc is the derivative time coefficient. When driven by a step, the output is an impulse. When driven by an impulse, the output is a monocycle. The models are optimized for use with different input rise times. A third IFN port is labeled “DC” and terminated in 50 Ω. A DC baseline offset, bias voltage, and/or a slower rise time, pedestal pulse may be connected to this DC port.
