Arbitrary Waveform Generators Provide Performance Boost
Tektronix, Inc. announces its AWG7000B and AWG5000B Series of arbitrary waveform generators (AWG). The AWG B series provides a 20% performance boost over many of the prior AWG instruments, and it meets the test needs for high-speed serial data buses and wideband RF applications. With 9.6 GHz effective RF output, 10-bit resolution, and sample rates up to 24 GS/s, the AWG7000B produces high-speed serial waveforms with real life imperfections including noise, jitter, pre/de-emphasis and multi-level signaling up to 8 Gb/s. Also announced is the radar signal creation option (RDR) for the RFXpress software suite, offering flexibility in creating pulsed radar waveforms on the AWG7000B and AWG5000B.
