$495.00

The 33120A is an Arbitrary Waveform Generator from Agilent. An arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) is a type of electronic test equipment people use to generate repetitive or single-shot electrical waveforms. Single-shot waveforms require a triggering source, either internal or external, while repetitive waveforms do not. Inject the signal the waveform generator creates into a device for analysis during testing, finding problems with the device, or confirming proper operation.

Uncompromising performance for standard waveforms

The HP 33120A function/arbitrary waveform generator uses direct digital-synthesis techniques to create a stable, accurate output signal for clean, low-distortion sine waves. It also gives you fast rise and fall-time square wave, and linear ramp waveforms down to 10 MHz.

Custom waveform generation

Use the HP 33120A to generate complex custom waveforms such as a heartbeat or the output of a mechanical transducer. With 12-bit resolution and a sampling rate of 40 MSa/s, the HP 33120A gives you the flexibility to create any waveform you need. It also lets you store up to found 16,000-deep waveforms in nonvolatile memory.

Easy-to-use functionality

The front-panel operation of the HP 33120A is straightforward and intuitive. You can access any of ten major functions with a single key press or two, then use a simple knob to adjust frequency, amplitude and offset. To save time, you can enter voltage values directly in Vp-p, Vrms or dBm. Internal AM, FM, FSK and burst modulation make it easy to modulate waveforms without the need for a separate modulation source. Linear and log sweeps are also built in, with sweep rates selectable from 1ms to 500s. HP-IB and RS-232 interfaces are both standard, plus you get full programmability using SCPI commands.

Optional phase-lock capability

The Option 001 phase lock/TCXO timebase gives you the ability to generate synchronized phase-offset signals. An external clock input/output lets you synchronize with up to three other HP 33120As or with an external 10-MHz clock. Option 001 also gives you a TCXO timebase for increased frequency stability. With an accuracy of 4 ppm/yr, the TCXO timebase makes an HP 33120A ideal for frequency calibrations and other demanding applications. With Option 001, new commands let you perform phase changes on the fly, via the front panel or from a computer, allowing precise phase calibration and adjustment. Link the HP 33120A to your PC To further increase your productivity, use the HP 33120A in conjunction with HP 34811A BenchLink Arb software. The Windows® -based program lets you create and edit waveforms on your PC and download them to your HP 33120A with the click of a mouse. Create complex waveforms in a math or statistics program--or use the freehand drawing tool--then pass them into HP BenchLink Arb. Use in conjunction with HP BenchLink Scope, the software also lets you capture a waveform with your HP oscilloscope or DMM and send it to your HP 33120A for output.
