2ch 4GSa/s Arbitrary Waveform Generator, 64M Sample Memory per Channel
The Agilent
arbitrary waveform generator provides 4.6 GSa/s, 2 GHz IQ modulation bandwidth and 12-bit vertical resolution for applications where waveform resolution is an issue. It has three output paths, DC-coupled direct DAC output with 1 GHz bandwidth, DC-coupled 2 V amplifier with >600 MHz analog bandwidth, or AC-coupled 10 dBm amplifier with 1.5 GHz analog bandwidth.
High Bandwidth: 1 GHz modulation bandwidth / channel, 2 GHz I/Q modulation bandwidth and 1.5 GHz carrier frequency
Reliable and repeatable measurements through best dynamic range and low harmonic distortion. Markers do not reduce DAC resolution
2 Vpp into 50 for many test cases and devices
Two or four channels. Combine 2 channels phase coherent or use them as two independent instruments in a single box. Two instruments can be synchronized to form a 4-channel system
Three software selectable amplifiers optimized for different applications requiring different signal characteristics
Advanced sequencing for best usage of 64 MSa memory for real-world signals
Dynamic Sequence control lets your application control the waveform – in real time
10 pre-defined waveforms speed up your measurements
