AWG615 Tektronix Arbitrary Waveform Generator


The AWG615 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:

  • Waveform Length – 960 to 32,400,000 points (or 64,800,000 points, option 01) in multiples of four
  • Sequence Length – 1 to 8,000 steps
  • Sequence Repeat Counter – 1 to 65,536 or infinite
  • 2.7 GS/s Sample Rate Simulates Real-world Signals Up To 1.35 GHz
  • 2 Markers With 2.1 psRMS (@ 2.7 GS/s, Typical) Jitter Deliver stable Timing to the Device-under-test (DUT)
  • 32.4M (32,400,000) or 64.8M (64,800,000) Point Record Length Provide Longer Data Streams
