Users can enter all functions with a single key or two, and use knob or numeric keypad to adjust frequency, amplitude, offset and other parameters. Otherwise, users can also directly input voltage values in Vpp, Vrms, dBm or high & low levels. Timing parameters can be entered in Hertz (Hz) or second. Users can easily use the following functions. Functions and Waveforms The Picotest G5100A 50 MHz Function / Arbitrary Waveform Generator can create stable, precise, clean and low distortion sine waves by using DDS (Direct Digital Synthesis) Technology. With fast rise and fall times up to 25 MHz for square waves and 200 KHz for linear ramp waves, the G5100A also can reach users demand on waveforms. It can also generate variable-edgetime pulses up to 10 MHz. With variable period, pulse width and amplitude the G5100A is perfectly suited to applications requiring a flexible pulse signal. Pulse Generation If a unique Waveform is needed, the G5100-A can generate variable-edge-time pulses up to 10 MHz. With variable period, pulse width and amplitude the G5100A is perfectly suited to applications requiring a flexible pulse signal. Custom Waveform Generation The G5100A can generate complex custom waveforms. With 14-bit resolution and a 125 MSa/s sampling rate, the G5100A gives users the flexibility to create waveforms. It also allows users to store up to 5 waveforms, 4 (4 x 256k Points) in nonvolatile memory and 1 in volatile memory. The G5100A’s Waveform Editor Software allows users to create, edit and download complex waveform. In addition, by using the software, users can retrieve waveforms from Agilent MSO 8104 oscilloscope. Support External Freq. Synchronization The G5100A’s external frequency reference allows users to synchronize an external 10MHz clock to another G5100A, or to any other unit which can support 10MHz frequency-input function. Data Transmission via Pattern Out The WavePatt software adheres to the waveform editor. It allows users to create and store 16bit data in the G5100A’s nonvolatile or volatile memory. Then, according to application purposes, users can transmit data via Pattern Out, located in the rear panel.
