AWG430 Tektronix Arbitrary Waveform Generator


The AWG430 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:

  • 3 Independent Waveform Channel
  • 16-Bit (1/65536) Vertical Resolution
  • 200 MS/s Sample Rate
  • Up to 16 M Record Length with option 01
  • Optional 16/32/48-Bit 100 MHz (CMOS) Digital Data Generator for Mixed-signal Device Testing
  • 2, 4 or 6 Digital Marker Outputs
  • Channel Internal Independent Noise Generator
  • Independent Channel Skew Control
  • Independent Channel External Signal ADD-INPUT
  • External Clock and External Reference Inputs


Designing, Testing and Deploying

  • Quadrature Digitally Modulated I&Q Signals and Displays
  • Mixed (Analog/Digital) Signals
  • Stimulus Signals for Imaging Display and Recording Devices (CCD, LCD)
  • Enhanced/Corrupted Playback of DSO Captured Signals
  • Simulation Waveform Vectors Imported from Mathcad, Matlab, Excel and Others

Network Communications Physical Layer Testing

  • ITU-T (E1, E2, E3)
  • TI.102 (DS1, DS1A, DS1C)
  • Fibre Channel (FCI33E)

The Tektronix AWG430 performs a wide range of modulated (I&Q) and mixed signal simulations (analog & digital) for wireless and wired data communication, in addition to semiconductor device characterization.

The AWG430 is ideal for design or manufacturing test engineers who need to replicate marginal and erroneous mixed signal conditions. The color display, graphical user interface and stand-alone Microsoft Windowsbased waveform creating utility supports quick creation, editing and output of custom or imported waveforms.
