Performance and features
The AFG1000 Series Arbitrary Function Generator provides a waveform
generation tool with the best price performance ratio. It includes two models
with dual channels, up to 60 MHz bandwidth and up to 10 Vp-p output
amplitude. The four run modes, 50 built-in frequently-used waveforms and
the built-in 200 MHz frequency counter cover most waveform generation
needs in your experiment and test jobs. The 3.95-inch TFT LCD, short-cut
buttons, USB interface and PC software provide the most intuitive ways to
configure the instrument.
Key performance specifications
Dual-channel, 25 MHz or 60 MHz sine waveforms, 12.5 MHz or
30 MHz square waveforms
14 bits, 125 MS/s or 300 MS/s arbitrary waveforms with 8 k points or
1 M points record length
Amplitude 1 mVp-p to 10 Vp-p into 50 Ω loads
Key features
Continuous, sweeping, burst, and modulation modes (AM, FM, PM,
ASK, FSK, PSK, PWM) covers most requirements for students and
other users to get the experiments/test job done
1 μHz to 25 MHz or 60 MHz sine waveform range, with 12-digit or 1 μHz
resolution and a ±1 ppm drift high stability time base, provides great signal
fidelity in the frequency domain. With 1 mVp-p to 10 Vp-p output amplitude
range, and 14-bit or 1 mVp-p resolution over the whole frequency range,
there is no need to compromise between output amplitude and frequency
any more.
Four different run modes cover most use cases with a cost effective
solution. 50 most-frequently used standard and arbitrary waveforms are
built-in for easy access. Up to 1 M points arbitrary waveforms memory
enables users to replicate real world signals captured with a Tektronix
oscilloscope or defined with ArbExpress. The built-in 200 MHz and 6-digit
resolution frequency counter is an easy and precise way to measure
frequencies/periods/pulse widths/duty cycles.
Ease of use
The high-resolution 3.95-inch color TFT display shows relevant settings
and parameters in both text and graphic formats, which give users full
confidence in their settings, and let them focus on the task at hand. The
front panel shortcut buttons and rotary knob make accesses to most
frequently used functions and settings with minimum effort and time. The
built-in 64-MByte non-volatile memory together with USB stick memory
interface, provide unlimited space for user-defined waveform storage.
64-MByte internal non-volatile memory for arbitrary waveform storage
Software and solutions
Built-in 200 MHz counter with 6-digit resolution offers an easy and
precise way of frequency/period/pulse width/duty cycle measurement
Compatible with ArbExpress, the user-defined arbitrary waveforms
generated by the free software can be loaded on the AFG1000 easily with a
USB memory stick.
Standard USB host/device for memory expansion and remote control
Free ArbExpress makes user defined waveforms editing extremely
easy
As a building block of Tektronix educational solution, the AFG1000 can be
embedded into TekSmartLab and enable a cost efficient and effective way
of teaching, learning, and lab management.
