8904A HP Function Generator
The 8904A is a Function Generator from HP. 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.
- Sine to 600 kHz, square, ramp, triangle to 50 kHz
- 12 bit direct digital synthesis
- Tone, DTMF, digital, Hop Ram sequence modes
- One or two outputs
- One to four internal channels
- AM, FM, Phi-M, DSBSC, and pulse modulation
- Unit to unit phase synchronization
The Agilent HP 8904A also has five other standard functions: square, triangle, ramp, from 0 Hz to 50 kHz plus DC, and Gaussian white noise. All waveform values in the Keysight Agilent HP 8904A are digitally calculated in real time by Keysight Agilent HP's Digital Waveform Synthesis IC yielding 12-bit digital accuracy. Full GPIB programmability is also included standard on the Keysight Agilent HP 8904A.
