The P730 is a high-speed, multipurpose digital fanout buffer housed in an anodized aluminum enclosure, which may be surface-mounted for OEM use or placed on a bench top for lab use.

The P730 features two input banks that are user-routable to two output banks, each consisting of four parallel buffered electrical outputs. Input and output levels are independently adjustable enabling compatibility with CMOS, TTL, LVDS, NECL, PECL, NIM and sine wave systems. Fiberoptic inputs are optionally available, expanding electrical signal translation to include optical-to-electrical conversion and galvanic isolation. A fully DC-coupled signal path maintains signal integrity to greater than 500 MHz pulse repetition rates.

The P730 is compatible with Highland's photonics, timing, benchtop, and VME products.
