The impulse generator-electronic switch is an instrument developed primarily to facilitate the design and production of radar networks such as delay, pulse-forming, and sweep networks. The instrument may be used to test any network that can be arranged to store a dc charge. Discharge characteristics of microsecond order, produced by a reference network and the network under test, are simultaneously displayed in pictorial form for comparative measurements. The first part of the paper describes representative applications and, with the aid of cathode-ray-oscilloscope traces, illustrates the simplicity of performance; the second part describes the circuit functions in detail.
