AWG2041 Tektronix Arbitrary Waveform Generator


The AWG2041 is an 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:

  • 1.024-GS/sec Clock Rate Provides up to 500-MHz Waveforms

The Tektronix AWG 2041 has a 1 GS/s sample rate and 1 MB execution memory. As with the entire 2000 Series family, the graphical user interface allows on-screen viewing of waveform editing and simplifies "what-if" test scenarios by easily allowing the creation of composite signals.

The standard AWG 2041 configuration provides up to 2 V output or 4 V with the complementary output, each with 8-Bits vertical resoluton. The AWG 2041 supports true Real Time Sequencing capability similar to the AWG 2021.
