AFG-3000 Arbitrary Function Generator
New Product Announcement
Good Will Instrument is announcing an Arbitrary Waveform
and Digital-Synthesized Function Generator, AFG-3000 Series,
to the market. This is the new generation of GW Instek digital
function and arbitrary waveform generator, migrating from the
technology of its popular product, SFG-830, into an advanced
arena.
The AFG-3000 Series is designed for industrial, scientific
research and educational applications. The series comes with a
bandwidth of 80MHz for AFG-3081 and 50MHz for AFG-3051.
The AFG-3000 Series, featuring 200Msa/s sampling rate, 16 bit vertical resolution and 1M point waveform length, is a
very useful and flexible signal source to meet diversified application needs in the market today.
The user-friendly operation, the On-Screen Help, and the multiple ways of arbitrary waveform editing make AFG-3000
just a plug-and-play equipment. The point by point waveform data entry or standard waveform clip piling through
front panel operation, the CSV file waveform data download, the direct waveform reconstruction through DSO
waveform data import, and the PC software edited waveform download are the 4 ways available for arbitrary waveform
editing.
A 4.3-inch high resolution TFT LCD in the AFG-3000 front panel is used to display waveform and setting parameters.
The large and high-resolution screen is especially useful when the arbitrary waveform construction is done through
front panel operation. The impedance of AFG-3000 can be selected between 50 Ohm and Hi-Z to ensure right
impedance compatibility between AFG and DUT.
WIDE FREQUENCY RANGE FROM 1μHZ to 80/50MHz
The AFG-3000 Series Arbitrary Waveform/ Function Generator employs direct digital synthesis (DDS) technology to
generate and output a variety of stable and precise waveforms. The frequency operates at up to 80MHz (AFG-3081)
or 50MHz (AFG-3051), with a maximum resolution of 1μHz for the entire frequency range. The built-in standard
waveforms include sine, square, triangle, ramp, pulse, noise and other types of waveforms.

MODULATION, SWEEP and BURST FUNCTIONS
The Modulation functions, including AM, FM, FSK and PWM, are provided
to cover a broad range of market requirements. A dedicated terminal for
the modulating signal output is available in the front panel for modulation
monitoring or other control purposes. Either an internal signal or an
external signal can be selected to perform modulation.
AM
FSK is a frequency modulation scheme in which digital information is
transmitted through signal frequency variation. The BFSK (binary FSK)
modulation, using two frequencies to represent data 1 and 0 respectively,
is commonly applied for Call ID and Remote Metering applications.
PWM is a digital modulation scheme that can be used to adjust the output
power level by controlling the pulse width of the driving signal. The
examples include the speed control of motor rotation and the luminance
control of LED lighting instrument. Changing the pulse width of driving
signal via PWM, the rotating speed of motor and the luminance of LED will
change accordingly.
FM
FSK
PWM to Control & Test the Motor Speed
PWM
The Sweep function supports three trigger modes: INT, EXT and manual,
and two sweep modes: LOG and LIN. Each time a sweep signal is
perceived, the function generator will start to sweep through the
user-defined frequency range by the frequency variation of either Log curve
or Linear curve.
Sweep
The Burst function supports two modes, “Gate” and “N Cycle”. To run
burst function, the burst repetitive rate has to be set first, then the time
duration of each burst has to be defined under Gate mode, or the number
of the waveform cycles in each burst has to be set under N Cycle mode.
Under both Gate mode and N Cycle mode, the burst waveform polarity and
phase can be controlled.
Burst
200MSa/s SAMPLING RATE & 16 Bit Amplitude Resolution
The profile of arbitrary waveform is composed of a series of data. The frequency of arbitrary waveform is derived
from sampling rate divided by the number of points constructing a complete waveform, i.e. frequency = sampling
rate / the number of points in a waveform. Based on the above, the higher the sampling rate, the higher the
arbitrary waveform frequency can be available. At a specific waveform frequency, AFG-3000 gives a 5ns horizontal
resolution for the output waveform, better than that a low sampling rate unit can provide.
The 16 bit amplitude resolution can display smooth waveforms, while a lower bit resolution will display only jagged
or less smooth waveforms. To generate the maximum level of 10V Ramp Waveform as an example, AFG-3000 with
16 bit D/A converter gives a 0.15mV resolution. Whilst a signal source with 12 bit D/A converter will give only a
2.4mV resolution. The advantage of 16 bit resolution is to provide straight line waveform with fine resolution.

However, the lower bit resolution can only provide a ladder shape waveform under the same output setting.
16 bit Allows Greater Details
OUTPUT FROM ANY SECTION OF 1M-POINT-LONG WAVEFORMS
The AFG-3000 Series provides 10 sets of memory for user save and recall applications. Each set of memory is able
to store a set of front panel setting and a set of 1M-point arbitrary waveform data. With 1M long memory, AFG-3000
can store more complex waveforms consisted of more data.
Furthermore, any section of waveform within each 1M memory can be edited or output independently. This is a
unique feature allowing users to do waveform storage and extraction with more flexibility, and at the same time
giving users the maximum utilization of the overall memory capacity.
Arbitrary Editing / Output
EASY OPERATION AND FLEXIBLE ARBITRARY WAVEFORM EDITING
The AFG-3000 presents four methods of Arbitrary Waveforms generation, including direct front panel operation,
PC software editing and download, CSV file download, and GDS-2000 Series oscilloscope direct input.
Front Panel Operation
Everything from waveform editing, I/O configuring, to panel
setting storage and recall, can be completed directly through
front panel operation. The point by point waveform data entry
and standard waveform clip piling are both feasible. Front
panel operation allows users to edit arbitrary waveform, which
is correspondingly updated on the screen. A feature of "What
You See is What You Get".
Panel Operation
CSV file uploading
AFG-3000 supports CSV file editing for arbitrary waveform generation. The CSV file can be created in many ways,
including using EXCEL spreadsheet, PC client software, front panel editing or math computing software. The
computing result of math software, Octave for example, can be saved into CSV file. Edited CSV file can be
downloaded from either USB flash or PC to AFG-3000 for arbitrary waveform output.

Direct Waveform Reconstruction (DWR) Capability
The AFG-3000 can be directly connected to a GW Instek
GDS-2000 Series DSO with USB cable for waveform data
download. Under "DSO Link" mode of AFG-3000, the DSO
will transfer the captured waveform data from its memory
to AFG-3000 for creating a correspondent waveform output.
Arbitrary Waveform Editing PC Software
A PC software for AFG-3000 waveform editing is supported. The software contains not only waveform drawing
tools but also a wide variety of waveform editing functions, such as waveform arithmetic operations. The most
commonly used waveforms, including Rayleigh, Gaussian, Normal Noise, Pseudo Ternary, Bipolar AMI,
Manchester, Differential Manchester, RS-232, and NRZ etc., are available in the library for user to tailor specific
waveforms as needed.
