33612A Agilent Arbitrary Waveform Generator


The 33612A 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.


  • 80 MHz, 2 channels
  • Up to 100 MHz pulse
  • 1 GSa/s sampling rate
  • 14-bit amplitude resolution
  • Trueform arbitrary waveforms, sequencing
  • Up to 64 MSa per channel arb memory
  • Low jitter: 1 ps, low phase noise: -125 dBc/Hz
  • Low harmonic and spurious distortion
  • PRBS serial patterns
  • Optional high-stability time-base

The Agilent HP 33612A waveform generator with exclusive Trueform Technology offer more capability, fidelity and flexibility than previous generation DDS waveform generators. The Agilent HP 33612A provides 80 MHz, 2-channels, Trueform arbs with sequencing and 64 MSa memory, 1 ps jitter (1/100th the jitter of DDS generators) and 5x lower harmonic distortion than DDS generators. The Agilent HP 33612A offers a full set of standard features and an optional baseband I-Q signal player that are designed to accelerate your development process from start to finish.

Unmatched capabilities for generating a full range of signals:
The Agilent HP 33612A waveform generator offers the common signals and features you expect, such as modulation, sweep and burst. However, it also offers features that give you the capabilities and flexibility you need to get your job done quickly — no matter how complex, like LAN, USB and optional GPIB interfaces. The Agilent HP 33612A's array of capabilities are designed to help you accelerate your testing and get your project wrapped up faster:

  • Waveform summing and combining capability
  • Variable-bandwidth noise
  • Waveform sequencing
  • Pseudo-random binary sequence (PRBS) pattern generation
  • Smart phone and tablet access
  • Flexibility in creating and playing waveforms
  • Built-in Web browser
  • Standard deep memory

Overcomes DDS limitations:

Agilent's Trueform technology offers an alternative that blends the best of DDS and point-per-clock architectures, giving you the benefits of both without the limitations of either. Trueform technology uses an exclusive digital sampling technique that delivers unmatched performance at the same low price you are accustomed to with DDS.

Ability to upgrade:

Choose the Agilent HP 33612A with the capability you need now, knowing you can upgrade bandwidth and/or memory later. All models in the Agilent HP 33600A Series come with a rich set of built-in, standard features, including LAN, USB and optional GPIB interfaces, 4 MSample of memory, an external timebase input, and basic waveform generation software. You get everything you need to generate clean, precise, low-noise signals for testing your designs.
