Barth Electronics, Inc. is a high technology company specializing in designing and manufacturing “state of the art” sub-nanosecond high energy, pulse power instrumentation since 1964. Originating in Ohio then moving to Boulder City, Nevada in 1976 during the days of weapons testing at the Nevada Test Site, we designed and manufactured very special test hardware for EG&G in Las Vegas as well as the National Laboratories. 

In 1997, Barth test equipment engineers developed the first commercial Transmission Line Pulser (TLP) for the Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) industry, using unique technology developed for high speed, high voltage test equipment.  As the operating transistors inside IC’s have become smaller and more sensitive to ESD, each pin on every IC is now protected to provide the reliability demanded in the digital world.

By beating our swords into plowshares, weapons testing hardware was changed into the development and manufacture of the highest quality ESD test equipment available today. The reliability demanded in weapons testing was also transferred into our commercial ESD test equipment. High reliability test equipment is needed to design and test semiconductors to ensure their high reliability. Accurate and dependable TLP testing is vital to identifying electrical characteristics of silicon IC’s.

We are continuously investigating new technologies that can be applied to ESD and high-voltage pulse power and are designing new products as the need becomes apparent.

We provide solutions to the ever growing needs of the ESD industry. Please see our ESD products page!

We continue to offer our trusted pulse power product products that are used every day for reliable pulse measurements in physics and pulse power laboratories around the world.  We offer over 100+ different pulse power products! Please see our Pulse products page!
