Wavetek 395 Arbitrary Waveform Generator, Synthesized, 100MS/s, 12 Bit Vert. Resolution , Function / Pulse Generator, 10 Vp-p into 50 Ohm.
Based on digital technology and the capabilities of a high performance synthesized arbitrary waveform generator,
It is the best all-around signal source available. You can use it as an arb, pulse generator, function generator, noise generator, sweep generator, trigger generator, or amplitude modulation source. Whatever the mix of your applications, Model 395 is the price/performance choice.
The Wavetek 395 can provide the functionality of seven instruments for the price of one.
The 100 MHz Wavetek 395 has the power and flexibility to provide the right signals for applications ranging from in-circuit testing of semiconductors to the complex pulse patterns required in communication testing.
This unit takes its place in the impressive Wavetek family of synthesized arbitrary waveform generators as the worldwide price/ performance leader among single channel arbs.
There simply isn't another 100 MHz arb on the market that can match its price, especially when you consider the supporting features. User-defined (arbitrary) waveforms can be generated at clock rates from 100 mHz to 100 MHz with 12 bits of vertical resolution and up to 256 k points of horizontal memory.
A crystal stabilized reference signal and a feedback loop enable accuracies comparable to those available in expensive frequency synthesizers. A waveform sequencing feature allows up to four waveforms to be linked in a sequence for creating very long waveform periods. Advancement from one waveform to the next is conditional upon waveform repeat (loop) counts and trigger signals.
These are the kinds of high performance specifications that make the Wavetek 395 the arb of choice for a variety of applications that require complex, nonstandard waveforms-from simulating power line disturbances such as drop out and spiked signals to providing complex signals for pressure sensors used in mechanical testing.
It generates 11 standard waveforms: square, sine, positive and negative ramps, pulse, noise, triangle, positive and negative haversines, sin(x)/x, and DC.
With synthesized accuracy and outputs up to 10 Vpp (into 50 ohms)
Direct digital synthesis (DDS) enables 10-digit frequency resolution for sine waves to 20 MHz and for most other standard waveforms to 100 kHz.
Waveforms can be output continuously or in triggered or gated modes that enable special applications such as brain response measurement and strain gauge data acquisition.
Other capabilities give you the flexibility of the very best function generators including frequency sweeping, amplitude modulation, and summing with an external signal.
The built-in noise generator is ideal for applications in which precise noise is required, such as testing electronic engine module noise susceptibility in automobiles. Extensive noise generation capabilities are provided by 5 programmable noise functions: white noise, digital noise, comb function, signal-plus-noise, and signal-plus-comb. Other programmable features include sequence length for white and digital noise, bandwidths to 10 MHz for comb and white noise, bandwidths to 50 MHz for digital noise, and noise-to-signal ratios from 1% to 99%.
Simple pulses up to 10 MHz can be generated. You can create complex pulse trains of up to 10 pulses with individually programmable rise time, fall time, width, level, and negative or positive (in respect to the sync pulse) delay.
This versatility makes it suitable in pulse applications as diverse as measuring the baseband frequency response in a microwave system, measuring the real-time impedance of biological cells, and testing propagation delay in electronic circuits.
Burst count is programmable from 1 to 1,048,575 cycles.
Gated mode provides continuous output of the wave-form for the duration of the gating signal.
And four different trigger sources are available for maximum versatility: internal trigger generator with programmable trigger period, external signal with programmable trigger level and slope, remote trigger command, and manual trigger key.
Performance characterization and frequency response testing, such as testing amplifier response or rapid cycling of a mechanical servo.
Wavetek's engineers have developed an algorithm that allows waveforms to be swept in one continuous range from 1 mHz to 20 MHz. Triggered and manual sweep operations also can be performed. Seven sweep modes, with linear and logarithmic sweep spacing, a TTL level sweep marker, and a ramp output give you the flexibility you need. There's even a pen lift function for use with chart recorders.
If you do communication or audio design and test, this unit offers internally generated amplitude modulation and frequency modulation, as well as external amplitude modulation in two modes. Normal mode provides 0 to 100% modulation; suppressed carrier mode provides +/-100% modulation.
The user screens are tailored to the particular jobs you want to perform, such as setting up a pulse generator or a noise function.
The large array of keys on the front panel means that it has a very simple menu hierarchy so that you don't get lost in a deep menu structure when you're using the instrument.
Arbitrary waveforms can be created from the front panel using point edit, line draw, and waveform insert modes or remotely downloaded via the RS-232 interface (included).
Calibration takes less than 15 minutes.
