The NIMFANOUT features two units, each of which generates 3 copies of a NIM signal.
NIM signals are designed to carry fast timing information, requiring electrical interconnects with a well-defined impedance. Thus, copies of these signals cannot be generated with T-pieces or power splitters. In the NIMFANOUT, the input NIM signal is regenerated at the outputs to ensure that the fast-rising edge is preserved for timing-sensitive applications.
The device is a modular unit to be powered by a Eurocard rack system (sold separately).
