SIGNAL GENERATORS
W h i le s i gna l ge ne ra t ors traditionally produce sine waves with accurate frequencies
and amplitudes, modern function generators provide capabilities such as pulses,
square, triangle, and sawtooth waves. Added features include programmability,
modulation, sweeping, gating, bursts, and a variety of triggering methods. Some
generators provide specialty waves, such as simulated earthquake or ECG (electrocardiogram) signals. Arbitrary waveform generators (AWG) allow the creation of accurate and sophisticated stimulus signals that reflect real-world applications. For
example, an automotive engineer can use an AWG to accurately simulate a fuel injector current signal in order to test some diagnostic electronics.
www.bkprecision.com/SignalGenerators
Modern circuits and systems can require a variety of signals for
characterization and testing. B&K Precision offers 28 models of signal
generators to meet these needs -- from sophisticated R&D lab work to
price-conscious school budgets.
■ 2 MHz – 120 MHz
■ Analog and digital function generators
■ True arbitrary waveform generators
There are two common architectures for signal generators today: DDS
(direct digital synthesis) and analog.
DDS generators provide flexibility, digital precision, programmability, and
sophisticated performance in small packages. Capable of generating sine
and square waves up to 50 MHz and 14 bit arbitrary waveforms of up to 4
million points at up to 125 million samples per second, B&K Precision's
407x series of AWGs lead the field in price, flexibility, and performance. Additionally, this AWG family also provides full function generator capabilities.
While DDS generators are at the forefront of generator technology and
features, analog generators are the time-tested workhorses of modern
technology, troubleshooting/maintenance, and education. They provide
excellent value with familiar controls and reliable operation, pleasing users
and business managers alike.

the 4011A, but with a sweep function added.
Th e mo de l 40 1 0A is an entry level 2 MHz
analog generator– perfect for school labs.
■ TTL/CMOS output
■ Adjustable DC offset
■ Sine/square/triangle/ramp/pulse
outputs
Some models have digital counters for
accurate frequency setting and measuring
and some are capable of sweeping in
frequency. Maximum frequency output
ranges from 2 MHz to 20 MHz. Typical uses
for these generators are:
■ Signal injection into electrical circuits
for characterization and troubleshooting
■ Experimental setups in college science
course laboratories
■ Test signals for equipment used in
scientific, engineering, and medical
research
Note: While only the 4040A offers FM modulation,
all units except the 4001A have a VCG (voltage
controlled generator) input that can simulate FM
modulation when driven by a modulating signal.
In addition, providing a ramp signal to this input
can effectively sweep the generator's output
frequency. On generators with sweep, the VCG
jack provides a DC signal proportional to the
instantaneous frequency, which can be useful for
driving XY plotters or scope displays.

SIGNAL GENERATORS
Pulse, Handheld, & RF Generators
20 Hz-150 kHz sine/square wave audio generator
The model 3001 generates low-distortion sine waves at 46 discrete frequencies. Output impedance is 600 ohms at the dual banana jacks and
the output voltage is continuously adjustable up to 1.2 V (RMS) into an
open circuit. Output flatness is ±0.5 dB. A 5 Vpp square wave is provided at separate banana jacks for synchronization. Frequency accuracy is 3% from 20 Hz to 100 kHz. The unit is powered from a 9 V
battery.
10 MHz pulse generator with 4-digit
LED display
The model 4030 pulse generator supplies
positive and negative 0.5-5 volt pulses into
50 Ω at up to 10 MHz pulse repetition frequency (pulse periods from 100 ns to 100
ms). Pulse widths are continuously variable
between 50 ns and 50 ms and the pulses
have rise and fall times of 12 ns. A 4-digit
frequency counter and 8 crystal-controlled
frequencies let you use the generator for
accurate time-domain work. The generator
can be triggered from external signals.
10 MHz handheld sine & square wave signal generator
The 3003 generates up to 10 MHz sine (adjustable amplitude from 0 to
4.5 Vpp no load) and TTL square waves using DDS technology in steps
of 0.1 Hz. Output frequency accuracy is 0.02%. The sine and square
waves are available simultaneously from separate BNC female
connectors. A 9 V battery supplies power or an external 6-9 VDC
adapter can be used. The output frequency is adjusted by push
buttons that increment or decrement each digit. The unit is smaller
than a typical paperback book and is about 2 inches (50 mm) thick,
making it a small, portable package. Battery operation is useful to
avoid ground loops and common mode voltages.
150 MHz RF signal generator
Example Uses
■ Interfacing different logic families
■ Providing clock signals for digital design
tasks
■ Measuring pulse response of circuits
■ Providing digital delays of up to 2 µs
■ Providing clean single pulses to trigger
other events
The 2005B supplies sine wave outputs from 100
kHz to 150 MHz (harmonics usable to 450 MHz)
at up to 100 mV (RMS). The output can be
amplitude modulated with an internal 1 kHz
signal or with an external audio signal up to 1 V
(RMS). An external crystal can be plugged in for
precise frequency control. The output is
provided via a BNC female connector.
■ Converting a repetitive analog signal to
clean digital pulses

DC e l e c tro ni c l oa ds are suitable for testing and characterizing a wide range of DC
power sources, such as DC power supplies, batteries, fuel cells, solar cells and other
power components. Unlike passive resistive loads, DC electronic loads offer a wide
variety of voltage/current ranges and can operate under multiple modes such as constant current (CC), constant voltage (CV), constant power (CW), and constant resistance (CR).
B&K Precision's 8500 family line of affordable programmable DC electronic loads
consist of a wide selection of models in the 300 W – 5000 W range. Each model
shares user-friendly features such as flexible operating modes, high resolution meter
and VFD display, built-in transient generator, and list mode functionality for custom
programmed dynamic load testing.
Model 8540 was designed for users requiring a basic DC load with a compact form
factor at a rock bottom price. The 8540’s specification are similar to the 8500 line, but
without the extras such as programming interface, triggering, and ability to create dynamic test conditions.

Flexible operating modes
C C , C R , C V an d C P m o d e
In constant current (CC) mode, the load will
sink a current according to the programmed current value regardless of the
input voltage. (CC) mode can be used for
load regulation testing of DC power supplies or for characterizing the discharge
profile of a battery.
Constant power (CP) mode simulates a load
whose power consumption is independent
of the applied voltage. Constant power (CP)
mode is useful for battery testing and
simulating a realistic discharge curve.
In constant voltage (CV) mode, the load will
attempt to sink enough current to control
the source voltage to the programmed
value. This mode is suitable for testing battery chargers. In constant resistance (CR)
mode, the load will sink a current linearly
proportional to the input voltage in accordance with the programmed resistance. Unlike conventional resistors, the load
resistance stays constant regardless of the
power level.
Model 8500
Tra ns i en t g en er at or
The 8500 series offers a variable frequency
generator which can be used in all operating modes. The DC load will toggle between two preset levels at a frequency
between 0.1 Hz to 1 kHz, either continuously or controlled by a trigger.
Remote control & application software
These DC loads can be remotely controlled
from any PC with USB or RS232 interface,
allowing the user to fully program and
monitor all parameters. An RS232 & USB to
TTL serial converter cable is included. For
users wanting to write their own custom
software, a set of example programs are
available for download via the B&K Precision website.
L is t m o d e
A list of command sequences can be stored
in non-volatile memory and executed
independently of a computer. Execution in
list mode greatly reduces command
processing time and computer interaction
during product testing. The command
sequence can be entered manually from the

Glossary of terms
32
Bandwidth:
The bandwidth is one of the most important specification when defining an oscilloscope as it represents the
range in which an oscilloscope can display frequency accurately. The bandwidth is defined by the frequency response curve when the attenuation is at the -3 dB mark.
As a general rule of thumb, the oscilloscope's bandwidth
should be at least five times the highest frequency of the
signal under test.
Sampling Rate:
Specifies the rate at which a waveform or signal is sampled. It is one of the main specifications typically defined
for oscilloscopes to demonstrate the number of data
samples they can display, often measured in the units of
samples per second.
Delayed Time Base:
A feature in some oscilloscopes that allows a single signal to be viewed at two different time bases with the second time base expanding a portion of the waveform and
starting at some point after the main time base begins.
This is often useful for magnifying display.
Sweep Rate:
Rate at which a sweep generator repeats a sweep cycle.

Spe c tr um a na l yz er s are essential tools for observing the frequency domain of a
signal. Key specifications of spectrum analyzers are dynamic range, phase noise,
level accuracy, and resolution bandwidth. These parameters determine how well the
analyzer performs common measurement tasks such as frequency, power, modulation, distortion, and noise measurements.
B&K Precision’s professional handheld spectrum analyzers are indispensible tools for
engineers and technicians who conduct field measurements in the 50 kHz to 8.5 GHz
range. Despite their compact form factor and weight of only 1.8 kg, the 2650A series
deliver performance and features comparable to many full-size bench spectrum analyzers. For example: The 2650A features a DANL (displayed average noise level) of
-127 dBm, which allows it to detect very small signals. In comparison, the 1.05 GHz
bench top analyzer model 2630, with a DANL of – 100 dbm, is less sensitive, however
the performance is sufficient for many applications in service and repair, and an ideal
solution for users looking for a very cost-effective, basic spectrum analyzer that
comes with extra features such as built-in tracking generator and AM/FM modulation.
Field strength meters characterize the electric field strength of radio and microwave
signals, providing users a tool for basic signal investigations at only a fraction of the
cost of a full-featured conventional spectrum analyzer.

Magnetic field strength measurement
Using a magnetic field probe (option PR
26M), the 2650A series is capable of
accurately measuring the magnetic field
distribution on a PCB (printed circuit board)
or IC (integrated circuit) over a wide frequency range of 10 MHz to 3 GHz. Since the
probe’s compensation data is already preloaded into the analyzer, the magnetic field
strength is displayed directly in dBuA/m.
The 2650A series includes easy-to-use
software for documentation and further
analysis of your measurements. Connect
the analyzer via USB cable to your PC,
configure the analyzer remotely, then
download measurement data and
instrument settings for storage and further
analysis.
■ Continuously sweep and transfer trace
data to the PC
■ Capture 1001 trace data points (twice the
number of display dots) and store the
data in CSV format
■ Save the screen to a bitmap file

sniffer probe set (PR 261) can be used to
locate cable and PC board emission “hot
spots” and evaluate EMC problems at the
breadboard and prototype level.
The spectrum analyzer/sniffer probe
combination is an excellent solution for RF
leakage/radiation investigation, CATV/MATV
system troubleshooting, cellular telephone
/pocket pager test and EMI diagnostics.
Convenient carrying case is available.
Mo de l 2 6 40 is a battery operated,
hand-held RF field strength meter capable
of measuring RF levels and electric field
strength. The synthesizer-based design
provides you with reliable measurements
across a wide reception range of 100 kHz to
2000 MHz, a remarkably low noise floor
of -110 dBm to detect weak signals and
basic spectrum analyzer functionality.
The 2640 provides field technicians and
engineers with a cost-effective
measurement tool for basic signal
investigations at only a fraction of the cost
of a full-featured conventional spectrum
analyzer.

COMPONENT TESTERS
Selection Guide
B&K Precision offers a wide range of component testers that can measure and identify values of capacitors, resistors, inductors, diodes, ICs,
and transistors. The measured values of these components can be used for component sorting or circuit trouble shooting.
LCR Meters are versatile instruments as they can measure most common components used in electronic circuitry. Capacitance meters on the
other hand are dedicated to testing capacitors only, and have typically a wider capacitance measurement range. Our transistor testers and meters that measure ESR can be invaluable tools when testing and troubleshooting components “in-circuit”, while logic probes are always used
in-circuit. IC Testers are used to identify and test some analog and digital ICs.

ABOUT B&K PRECISION
Introduction
History
B&K family of companies
For more than 50 years B&K Precision has
provided test and measurement solutions to
customers from wide-ranging fields including research and development, product design, industrial maintenance, electronic field
service, production line testing, and the educational community, among others. Universities and technical schools worldwide
have made our instruments standard equipment in their training programs.
B&K Precision helped pioneer the electronic
testing industry, and like so many early electronics firms, B&K started in a garage. By
1948, when Americans had begun buying
televisions in large numbers, Chicago entrepreneur Carl Korn and his partner Philip Ban
responded to the need for maintenance of
often-unreliable sets. Frustrated by a lack of
equipment to easily test television components, Ban and Korn began making their
own devices and opened Central Television
Service Company. They soon had a thriving
business selling CRT rejuvenators and vacuum tube testers to other television service
shops. By 1951, Korn had developed what
would become B&K Precision into a company that had branched out into other
areas of electronic testing and measurement. B&K engineers broke new ground,
earning several patents in the field of television test equipment, and rapidly pushing
the company to become a worldwide leader
in electronic measurement.
North America – B&K Precision
Our headquarters in Yorba Linda, California
house most of our administrative and executive functions including research and design, customer service and repair, and sales
and marketing. The California warehouse
ships to North, Central, and South America,
and our service center provides our customers with live, one-on-one support.
In 1961, Carl Korn placed B&K Precision
under an umbrella corporation, Dynascan,
comprising a variety of electronics firms.
One of those companies, Cobra Electronics,
came to dominate the Citizen’s Band (CB)
radio phenomenon. Choosing to focus on
radios, Korn sold B&K Precision. Through
an ensuing series of ownership transitions
B&K continued to produce high-quality testing and measurement products.
Our distribution partners
Since 1951 the B&K Precision name has represented quality, consistency, and value. We
take pride in supplying outstanding products and excellent service at fair prices. Full
certification by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO 9001:2008) reflects our commitment to excellence. Our
mission is to maintain the standards that
have built our reputation, develop new
products to meet advancing needs, and continue providing the products and service our
customers have come to trust.
We stand behind every product we ship.
Our warranties are valid worldwide, and we
provide global service and support to guarantee your satisfaction. Our offices in North
America, Europe, and Asia work with an international network of authorized distributors to ensure prompt delivery and excellent
customer support.
B&K Precision engineers design and use
the equipment we make, so we have a
personal commitment to crafting well-designed products that deliver the results
you need quickly and accurately. Our engineering and design teams constantly work
to improve our current product families and
develop new products to meet the industry’s ever-changing demands.
B&K offers a complete range of general testing and measurement instruments. Our core
products include power supplies and DC
electronic loads, signal generators (especially function and arbitrary generators),
component testers, oscilloscopes, spectrum
analyzers, and multimeters. We provide a
full complement of device programmers,
video and cable testers, electrical and battery testers, and environmental testers. We
also produce a comprehensive array of
probes, leads, adapters, and additional accessories that make testing easier.
Our products are backed by warranties covering parts and labor, effective worldwide.
Our in-house technicians work directly with
you to provide any necessary calibrations or
repairs, ensuring optimum performance.
Europe – Sefram
Our European customers have become
most familiar with B&K through our Sefram
subsidiary. Sefram’s offices in St. Etienne,
France currently support customers in
Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
Asia – ITECH and Lodestar
Engineers in Asia know us through our
ITECH and Lodestar brands. Offices in
Nanjing and Taipei provide distribution and

warranty, and worldwide service and support.
In 1996, engineer Victor Tolan, headed up a
new ownership team for B&K Precision that
launched a greatly expanded product line.
The company also expanded upon its American base to better serve international customers. Company headquarters moved to
southern California to provide improved
service to Asia. In 2004 B&K expanded its
presence in Europe through the acquisition
of Sefram Instruments to better meet customer needs in the region.
B&K Precision has come a long way from its
days in Carl Korn’s garage, but holds fast to
the business ideals of innovation, flexibility,
and solid customer service that have guided
us from our humble beginnings in America,
while reaching out to embrace the rapidly
expanding global marketplace. We now provide service and support on four continents,
and our design team draws upon resources
in places as wide-ranging as Romania,
Israel, and Taiwan.
As B&K Precision keeps growing, we continue to uphold the standards we set more
than a half-century ago even as we find new
answers to our customers’ needs. Whether
you require measuring devices for a new
venture; testing equipment to ensure standards adherence; technology for teaching
budding young scientists—or instruments
for test and measurement challenges that
depend on quality and accuracy, B&K Precision Corporation has solutions.
