AFG5101 Tektronix Arbitrary Waveform Generator

The AFG5101 is a Arbitrary Waveform Generator from Tektronix. 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.

Additional Features:

The Tektronix AFG 5101/5501 Programmable Arbitrary/Function Generator combines the capabilities of standard analog and arbitrary waveform generation with the ability to generate virtually any sweep shape to allow accurate simulation of real-world functions. Standard analog functions include Sine, Square, and Triangle waveforms, and DC with frequencies from .012 Hz to 12 MHz and amplitudes from 10 mV to 9.99 V p-p into 50 ohms. Waveforms can be continuous, triggered, galed, or burst. Trigger can be internally, manually or GPIB supplied. Arbitrary waveforms can be defined point by point, generated mathematically, transfered from computer graphics, or captured from an analog source and stored into one of two independently selectable 12 bit by 8K waveform memories for later use.
