I am trying to figure out how to measure the time delays between VM complete signals on two 34401A's. Both are triggered from a Group Execute Trigger (GET) on GPIB. 


Can the 53132A do this:

   Trigger (start timer) on GPIB GET

   Measure the time until 1st edge on Channel 1


   Measure the time until 1st edge on Channel 2 (could occur before or after edge on channel 1)

Return the two times 


Alternatively, measure the (positive or negative ) time differences between and edge on ch.1 and and edge on ch.2.



For background, it's about 1 ms from GET until the edges, and I want to measure their position within about 1 us.
