New family of waveform generators for signal accuracy

August 31st, 2012, Published in Articles: EngineerIT

Agilent Technologies has introduced the 33500B series waveform generators. The eight new one- and two-channel models, which generate waveforms up to 30 MHz, incorporate exclusive Trueform signal-generation technology. Trueform enables these models to offer unmatched capabilities for generating a full range of signals for the most demanding measurements required when designing electronic devices. The 33500B waveform generators provide the lowest jitter and lowest total harmonic distortion in their class, giving engineers the ability to generate the exact signals they need. With better jitter performance, engineers can place edges more accurately, helping them reduce timing errors in their circuit designs. With total harmonic distortion less than 0,04% and non-harmonic spurs less than 75 dBc, the 33500B series offers clean signals that don’t introduce noise, enabling users to get more accurate results. The 33500B series’ 8.4-ns rise and fall times and low jitter allow engineers to set trigger points more accurately as well. The instruments’ 16 bits of resolution allows engineers to make output changes down to 1 uV – giving them the ability to test today’s low-voltage circuits and designs.
