Single Instrument Addresses Baseband and IF Test Needs
Wed, 03/14/2007 - 12:18pm
Tektronix, Inc. introduces the AWG5000 Series of Arbitrary Waveform Generators (AWG). With a single AWG5000, users are able to generate high-resolution signals for testing both analog and digital baseband and intermediate frequency (IF) circuits in mixed-signal devices, increasing test efficiency and reducing costs. The AWG5000 is suitable for testing digital RF technologies including software defined radios and radars, WiMAX, WiFi, MIMO, and UWB. With variable sample rates up to 1.2 GS/s and 14-bit resolution, either two or four analog channels and up to 28 digital outputs, the AWG5000 series enables engineers to effectively and efficiently test emerging digital RF applications using “real-world” signals. The AWG5000 Series consists of four models, offering two and four analog channels with two versions of each, with variable sample rates up to 600 MS/s and 1.2 GS/s.
