8018A Agilent Data Generator
- For dual-channel applications, the memory splits so that the outputs have independent 1 Kbits of data.
- High performance output amplifier delivers clean, 6 ns pulses with repetition rates from DC to 50 Mbits/s.
- Output amplitude is variable up to 15 V into 50 ohms enabling the Agilent 8018A to directly drive logic circuits ranging from TTL to CMOS.
- Output levels for ECL are also provided.
With 2048 programmable bits, and a choice of pseudo-random binary sequences (prbs) ranging to over 1 Mbits, the Agilent 8018A Serial Data Generator is a powerful stimulator for serial digital systems and devices requiring high bit rate and fast pulses. Even preamble-data-post-amble data link patterns are feasible by combining prbs and programmed data. Useful synch outputs simplify testing by locking scope or analyzer to unique points in the data stream.
