The model 726 is a 16-channel level translator packaged in a single width NIM module. It simultaneously converts in any direction between NIM, TTL and ECL logic families. In addition, a logical "OR" is possible for the ECL input and the NIM/TTL input. The input to output is direct coupled with the output duration equal to the input duration. Each channel has a single input connector which accepts a fast negative NIM level with 50 ohm input impedance and a positive TTL level with 500 ohms impedance. This produces a positive TTL output capable of driving a 50 ohm load and a bridged NIM output that drives two 50 ohm loads. The NIM output stage is current-switching which allows pulse clipping and is protected from damage due to shorted cables.
Input Characteristics NIM/TTL 16 inputs, one per channel, LEMO style connector; accepts both negative NIM or positive TTL pulses or levels. NIM: 50 ohms impedance +/-10%; -500 mV threshold; input protected to +/-8 VDC. TTL: 500 ohms impedance +/-10%; +1.2 Volt threshold; input protected to +/-8 VDC. ECL Input 16 inputs, one per channel; 2 x 17-pin header with lock and eject feature; accepts complementary ECL inputs; removable 110 ohm input termination; 200 mV differential threshold. Output Characteristics NIM Outputs Two NIM outputs per channel; bridged -32 mA current switching, LEMO style connectors; delivers one double amplitude NIM level or two normal NIM levels into 50 ohms; 1.5 nsec rise and fall times. TTL Output One TTL output per channel, LEMO style connector; sources 45 mA to drive 50 ohm load or 1000 standard TTL loads, sink current of 100 mA; able to drive 100 standard TTL loads. 3.5 nsec rise and fall times. ECL Output Complementary ECL, one per channel; 2 x 17 pin header with lock and eject feature; drives two 110 ohm ECL loads or up to 30 daisy- chained loads. Normal ECL levels of -800 mV and -1.7 Volts, 2 nsec rise and fall times. General Characteristics Rate DC to 150 MHz for NIM and ECL translation, DC to 100 MHz for TTL translation. Minimum 4 nsec for NIM and ECL translation, Pulse Widths 7 nsec for TTL translation. Delay NIM, TTL or ECL input to NIM or ECL output = 5 nsec. NIM, TTL or ECL input to TTL output = 10 nsec.
