Tektronix (Beaverton, OR) has introduced the AWG4000 Series, which the company claims to be the industry’s first 3-in-1 arbitrary waveform generator. With basic, advanced, and digital modes, the portable signal generator can be shared across design teams and can meet a variety of signal generation needs ranging from radar and wireless communications to embedded systems design and research applications. Features include:
- The ability to generate frequently used waveforms in an easy manner with little to no set up, as well as the ability to generate more complex waveforms with many degrees of flexibility.
- 2 analog channels.
- Up to 2.5GS/s sampling rate.
- 750 MHz bandwidth.
- 14-bit vertical resolution.
- Up to 64 Mpt/ch arbitrary memory.
- Sequence with up to 16,384 entries.
- 32-bit digital channels.
- Filed-upgradable specifications, including memory and digital outputs.
- A weight of <15 lbs.
- A 10.1” touch screen.
- A portable design.
- A basic arbitrary/function generation (AFG) user interface for simple tasks for generating function and arb waveforms with a minimum number of button clicks and a shallow menu hierarchy on the touch screen.
- An advanced Windows-based user interface for complicated tasks that can be used to generate complex sequences and modulated signals in parallel with digital outputs.
- Signal generation tools such as RFXpress or Matlab can also be installed locally.
- Suitability for manufacturing applications where synchronization and communication across instruments is needed.
- The ability to have up to 6 AWG4000s synchronized via a dedicated synchronization interface that provide precise timing between units.
