Thanks for the question katgod. The sub-10ps pulse generators referenced in the article typically provide edge amplitudes ranging somewhere between hundreds of millivolts to a few volts. However, often there is only one available edge amplitude for a given pulse generator and additional hardware may be required to adjust the amplitude of the edge. An exception to this is Agilent's N2806A Calibration Pulse Generator, which has a switch to select between 500 mV or 1 V amplitude.

Did I miss this, I could not find any mention of the amplitude of this edge.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
