A low cost pulse transceiver has been developed for measuring the electrical properties of materials. The transceiver generates an ultra wide band (UWB) pulse as well as samples the received pulse. The pulse generator has been designed using a silicon-germanium (SiGe) analog comparator which is a possible alternative to step recovery diodes. The pulse is received by an extended time sampling circuit. The sampling circuit presented is an alternative design that does not require the use of a broadband balun.
