The Tektronix R116 is a programmable pulse generator introduced in 1968 for use with automated measurement systems such as the 240 and R250.

The R116 uses a 1N3716 tunnel diode to produce pulses.

Features
  • "Programmable"
  • Double pulse mode

The R116 has a programming connector in the back. Eight operating parameters can be programmed digitally (by switch closure):

  • Trigger Source
  • Mode
  • Period Range
  • Delay or Burst Time Range
  • Width Range
  • Amplitude Range
  • Polarity
  • Rise Time/Fall Time Range

Seven more parameters are controlled by connecting external resistances:

  • Period Multiplier
  • Delay or Burst Time Multiplier
  • Width Multiplier
  • Amplitude Multiplier
  • DC Offset
  • Rise Time Multiplier
  • Fall Time Multiplier
