Berkeley Nucleonics Corporation

Since 1963 BNC has a rich history of precision electronic instrumentation for test,measurement & nuclear research. Our benchtop pulse delay generators are packed with features,giving users in many technical areas a versatile,cost-effective product.

Berkeley Nucleonics Corporation (BNC) is a leading manufacturer of precision electronic instrumentation for test and measurement, radiation detection, nuclear research, and RF/microwave. From signal generators to spectrum analyzers, we offer the widest range of signal generation and analysis tools from a single manufacturer. Our application engineers are always available to discuss your specific needs. BNC happily offers product demonstrations if you’re interested in testing out a unit on site to make sure that it is right for you.

Our corporate headquarters are in San Rafael, California, with additional manufacturing facilities and sales offices located throughout the United States.

We maintain an international network of manufacturer's representatives—including Optilas, Canberra Packard, ORTEC, Coherent, and Seiko—to provide for precision instrumentation needs globally.

Founded in 1963

BNC initially developed custom pulse generators. We became known for meeting the most stringent requirements for high precision and stability, and for producing instruments of unsurpassed reliability and performance. We continue to hold a leadership position as a developer of custom pulse, signal, light, and function generators. Our designs incorporate the latest innovations in software and hardware engineering, surface mount production, and automated testing procedures. The Model 625A, our first ARB/Function Generator received several electronics industry awards, including the Cahners Electronics Group's ”T&M Product of the Year” award. Today our Arbitrary Waveform Generators offer industry leading modulation bandwidth and memory depth. 

BNC’s Innovative Engineering

BNC’s innovative engineering has resulted in a highly regarded line of digital delay generators (DDGs). To date, we have introduced 15 different DDGs with delay resolution as low as 250 femtoseconds. Annual media surveys consistently rank us in the top echelon of producers of DDGs. Other noteworthy product lines include our Light Pulse Generators and our RF Signal Generators. Our R&D is highly focused on compact solutions without compromising performance.
