 Dual-channel Output, Built-in and Editable Arb Waveform
Dual Channel Output: Separately setup the
wavefrom and parameter as well as the output state
of two channels. The phases from two channels
could be synchronous while outputting based on
the “AligPha” function from operation menu.
Built-in Waveform Output: The instrument
has 48 built-in arbitrary waves (contains DC) which
including common, math, engineering, window
function and other common waves.
Editable Arb Waveform: Enable to edit and
output a arbitrary wave with 14bits, 4kpts.
In addition, the instrument provides 10 nonvolatile
memories for storing custom arbitrary waves.
According to Ultrawave, more waves could be
edited and saved.
 Abundant Modulation Functions, Sweep, Burst
Abundant Modulation Functions: Support
AM, FM, PM and FSK, the modulated waveforms are
intuitively shown on the screen. It can be used in
Education & Training area proverbially.
Sweep: It can generate “sweep” from the start
frequency to the stop frequency during appointed
sweep time (1 ms ~ 500 s) you specify. Sweeping can
be generated by Sine, Square, Ramp or Arbitrary
waveforms.
Burst: It can generate pulse sequence for a variety
of waveform function, and the waveform could
continuousely cycle within specific time or apply
external gating signal.
 Channel Coupling and Copy
 Built-in Frequency Counter
Channel Coupling: Once you setup the
base channel and the Frequency/Phase
deviation of the two channels, the
Frequency/Phase of the other one will vary
with the base channel and will still keep the
deviation you have selected.
Channel Copy: According to this
function, the parameters from one channel
could be copied to another channel with no
change of the waveform shape.
The counter coulde be used to measure these
parameters: frequency, period, duty cycle,
positive pulse width and negative pulse width
within the range of 100 mHz to 200 MHz.
Two modes of counter are available:
Auto mode: The coupling mode, sensitivity,
trigger level and the switch of high frequency
reject could be set automatically.
Manual mode: DC/AC, sensitivity (low, mid,
high), trigger level, the switch of high
frequency reject could be set manually.

 Powerful Waveform Editing Software “UltraWave”
In order to meet the most basic needs of users,
UltraWave provides 9 standard waveforms: Sine,
Square, Ramp, Pulse, ExpRise, ExpFall, Sinc,
Noise and DC. In addition, hand drawing, line
(point by point) drawing and arbitrary points
drawing are also offered to make it easier to
create complex waveforms and to edit multiple
waves simultaneously through the multi-file
management interface.
Either, UltraWave has following utilitarian
functions:



Windows operation: enable to perform
math operations such as“+”、“-”、“×”
for the waves in two windows.
Absolute operation: enable to perform
absolute operation for the selected
waves.
Filter: enable to perform low pass
filtering or smoothing for the whole
wave.

Remark:
[1] In atypical condition, the specification may have minor differences.
[2] In normal temperature, short circuit in less than half hour will be tolerable.

CH1 is provided with Overvoltage function. When the output terminal is connected to an external circuit, the
relationships between the output voltage “Vout” of generator and the voltage “Vin” possibly generated by external
circuit are:
If Vout≤1VDC, the protective range of Vin is ±3V
If Vout>1VDC, the protective range of Vin is ±12.5V
Thereinto, Vout=Amplitude/2+|Offset|, the Amplitude and Offset are the parameters of the signal outputted
from generator.
The generator will cut off the output automatically when Vin exceeds the specified range.

The voltage inputted to the output connector of CH2 should be within ±3V.
[3] External input voltage should be within ±5V, or else the generator may be damaged.
