The TGA12102 is a 50 MHz arbitrary waveform generator. All TGA1200 series units generate arbitrary waveforms using a variable clock architecture rather than DDS. This ensures that every point in the waveform is replayed exactly as it was defined, the rate of replay being set by the clock frequency.
