A pulse generator is an electronic circuit or device that generates a pulsed signal. A device that can generate more complex signals is called a "function generator", while one that can generate higher frequency signals is called a "signal generator".
To generate high-voltage pulses, a high-voltage pulse power supply and a signal source such as a pulse generator are required.
