IXYS Corporation (NASDAQ:IXYS) , a leader in power semiconductors, mixed-signal and digital ICs for power conversion, motor control, medical, telecommunication and industrial applications, announced today the introduction of its PVM-1001 950 Volt high speed, high power pulse generator by its IXYS Colorado division.

With advanced pulse power circuitry using IXYS IXDI604SI MOSFET Drivers, and high voltage, high speed MOSFET switches, the PVM-1001 drives a 50 Ohm load from 0 V to 950 V with less than an 8 nanosecond rise time. Pulse widths can be varied from 55 nanoseconds to 10,000 nanoseconds with repetition rates to 1 MHZ (burst to 5 MHz). The output pulse width and frequency are controlled by an external trigger source.

The PVM-1001 is designed for pulsed applications including instrument calibration, component testing, beam steering and Photomultiplier Tube (PMT) and Multichannel Plate (MCP) gating, as well as other applications requiring precision high speed, high voltage pulses, delivered into 50 Ohms.

Weighing less than 0.5 kg with a volume of just 1325 cubic centimeters (81 cubic inches), the PVM-1001 is ideal for airborne and mobile applications requiring a compact, lightweight pulse generator that is simple to connect and operate.

“The PVM-1001 offers a compact, high performance addition to IXYS Colorado’s successful line of high power, high speed pulse generators,” said Stephen Krausse, General Manager of DEI. “This pulser leverages decades of IXYS Colorado design and power integration experience to deliver one of the most versatile and compact 50 Ohm high voltage pulse generators available on the market today.”

The PVM-1001, available in both positive and negative output polarities, is available directly from IXYS Colorado (Directed Energy) Tel. (970) 493-1901, Fax (970) 232-3025, email,, or through your local authorized IXYS sales representative.
