pulse width

The nominal duration of a standard pulse, which is the time interval between the half-amplitude points on the rise and the decay points of the curve. For the pulses of other shapes, the points on the curve must be stated. Also known as a pulse length or a pulse duration

The minimum range is derived from the pulse width by the following formula:
Enhanced performance with the wider pulse widths and increased reverse current density ratios were not surprising, but the improvement, although statistically less significant, with increased average current density was unexpected.
Boulder, Colorado-based AudioLogic's IP includes all-digital pulse width modulation technology and what it claims is the world's lowest power digital signal processor.
Process Control Corp., Atlanta, has improved its XG series of gravimetric blenders with a new Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) closed-loop drive control, which increases the operating range of each ingredient feeder to 30:1 from 10:1.
Other features of the 2001 Series include a pulse width modulation output that ensures smooth, cool motor operation over a range of speeds; high carrier frequency output that ensures a quiet motor at all speeds and loads; and the ability to smoothly start into a rotating motor in either direction.
Combining 40W average power with 400[micro]J pulse energies and exceptional energy stability of less than 0.5 per cent rms, the Carbide maintains all the best features of its predecessor, Pharos, including tuneable repetition rates from single shot to 1MHz, an integrated pulse picker for pulse-on-demand control, and tuneable pulse width from less than 290fs to more than 10ps.
