AWG520 Tektronix Arbitrary Waveform Generator


The AWG520 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.

As a member of the Tektronix family of arbitrary generators, the AWG 500 Series is a high performance, mixed-signal source. The AWG 500 Series provides 1 GS/s sample clock rate and 4 M word execution memories.

Its unique design integrates a graphical editing display with the most powerful hardware output capabilities available. This allows on-screen viewing of waveform editing and simplifies "what-if" test scenarios by easily allowing the creation of composite signals.

The AWG 500 uses a graphical user interface to overcome the historical difficulties associated with developing arbitrary and complex waveforms. Several intuitive and powerful techniques are built-in to develop and edit custom waveforms.

The standard AWG 520 configuration provides 2 channels. Each channel provides 10-bit vertical resolution with amplitudes up to 2 vp-p.
