8165A Agilent Function Generator
The 8165A is a 50 MHz function generator from Agilent. A function generator is a type of signal generator people use to generate many kinds of electrical waveforms over a range of frequencies. A function generator is a type of electronic test equipment that produces sine, triangular, square, and sawtooth shape waveforms. The user can make these waveforms single-shot, using a trigger source, or repetitive, based on use. This kind of signal generator uses integrated circuits to create waveforms. Function generators cover both RF and Microwave frequencies.

- Storage of operating parameters
The Agilent 8165A Programmable Signal Source is a versatile function generator with good accuracy and many trigger features. Microprocessor control assures rapid, accurate setup whether you're programming locally or via HP-IB.
Ten complete sets of operating information can be stored and recalled. In the event of power failure, battery back-up retains all data plus the active settings.
Stable frequency is ensured with an internal crystal. The four-digit frequency display provides a 1 µHz resolution in the 1 to 9.999 mHz range. In Normal mode, the accuracy is 0.001% with a stability of ±1 X 10-6.
