Introduction of SDG1000 Series
The
manual
covers
the
following
5
types
of
SDG1000
Series
Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generators: SDG1005, SDG1010, SDG1020,
SDG1025, SDG1050.
SIGLENT SDG1000 Series Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generators adopt
the direct digital synthesis (DDS) technology, which can provide stable,
high-precision, pure and low distortion signals. Its combination of excellent
system features, easiness in usage and versatile functions makes this
generator a perfect solution for your job now and in the future.
SDG1000 Series Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generator has a clear and
simple front-panel. The user-friendly panel layout and instructions, versatile
terminals, direct graph interface, built-in instructions and help system have
greatly simplified the operation process, with the help of which, users do not
have to spend a great deal of time learning and familiarizing the operation of
the generator before they can use it proficiently. The built-in AM, FM, PM,
ASK, FSK and PWM modulation functions generate modulated waveforms at
ease, without the help of a separate modulating source. USB I/O is a
standard accessory, while GPIB is optional. Remote instructions meet the
SCPI specification requirements.

1.1. General Inspection
When you get a new SDG1000 Series Function/Arbitrary Waveform
Generator, you are suggested to take the following steps to inspect the
instrument.
1. Inspect the shipping container for damage.
If there are damages in the packing or foam, keep them until the whole
machine and the accessories pass the electric and mechanical testing.
2. Check the accessories.
Accessories supplied with the instrument are listed in chapter 6

Use the Mod button to generate modulated waveform.SDG1000 Series can
generate AM, FM, ASK, FSK, PM, PWM and DSB-AM modulated waveforms.
Modulating parameters vary with the types of the modulation. In AM, users
can set the source (internal/external), depth, modulating frequency,
modulating waveform and carrier waveform; In FM, users can set the source
(internal/ external),modulating frequency, frequency deviation, modulating
waveform and carrier waveform; In ASK, users can set the source
(internal/external), Key Freq and carrier waveform; In FSK, users can set the
source (internal/external), key frequency, Hop Freq and carrier waveform; In
PM, users can set the source (internal/external),phase deviation, modulating

Modulation Depth
The amplitude range (also called ‘Percentage Modulation’). Modulation depth
varies from 1% to 120%.

In the 0% modulation, the output amplitude is the half of the set one.

In the 100% modulation, the output amplitude is the same with the set
one.

For an external source, the depth of AM is controlled by the voltage level of
the connector connected to the [Modulation In]. ±6V corresponds to the
currently set depth 100%.
FM
The modulated waveform consists of two parts: the carrier waveform and the


The sum of the deviation and the carrier frequency should be equal to or
less than maximum frequency of the selected function.

For an external source, the deviation is controlled by the voltage level of
the connector connected to the [Modulation In]. +6V corresponds to the
selected deviation and -6V to the negative selected deviation.

To Set the Output Load
For the [Output] connector on the front panel, the generator has a built-in
50Ω series impendence. If the actual load does not match the set one,
the displayed amplitude and offset will be incorrect. This function is used
to match the displayed voltage with the expected one.
Steps for setting the load:
Press Utility →Output Setup→ Load, to enter the following interface.
Please
note
that
the
load
parameter
shown
on
the
right
bottom is the default setting when the power is on or the pre-set load
value. If the current value is valid for the output, then current value will be
used.
SDG1000 User Manual
67
Figure 2- 60 Set the Output Load
Instruction
SDG1000 Series has a fixed 50Ω Series Impendence. No matter what value
the set parameter is, if the real load is different from the set one, the displayed
voltage will not equal the real voltage.
2. To Set the Invert Waveform
Press Utility →Output Setup→ Invert, to set the Inverse Waveform Output.
When the waveform is inverse, no offset will change.
3. To Set the Coupling
SDG1000 supports frequency and phase couplings. When coplings is
enabled, CH1 and CH2 are mutual base source. When the frequency or
phase of one channel (as the base source) is changed, the corresponding
parameter of the other channel will be changed automatically and always
keeps the specified frequency deviation or phase deviation relative to the
SDG1000 User Manual
68
base channel.
Press Utility →Output Setup→ Coupling, to set the coupling function.
To Set the Sync Output
The generator provides Sync output through the [Sync] connector on the rear
panel. All standard output functions (except DC and Noise) have a
corresponding Sync signal. For some applications, they can be disabled if
users do not want to use it,

In the default setting, the Sync signal should be connected to the [Sync]
connector (activated). When the Sync Signal is disabled, the output
voltage of the [Sync] connector is level low.

In the Inverse Mode, the Waveform that corresponds to the Sync Signal
does not inverse.

The Sync Signal is a Pulse Signal with fixed positive pulse width, which is
more than 50ns.

For non-modulated waveform, the Sync Signal reference is the carrier.

For internal modulating AM, FM and PM, the Sync signal reference is the
modulated signal (not the carrier signal).

For ASK and FSK, the Sync Signal Reference is the keying Frequency.

For a Sweep, when the sweep starts, the Sync Signal becomes TTL
Level High. The Sync frequency equals the specific Sweep time.

For the Burst, when the burst starts, the Sync Signal is Level High.

For the External Gated Burst, the Sync Signal follows the External Gated
Signal.

4. Troubleshooting
General Inspecting
After receiving a new SDG1000 Series Function/Arbitrary Waveform
Generator, please inspect the instrument as followed:
1. Inspect the shipping container for damage.
Keep the damaged shipping container or cushioning material until the
contents of the shipment have been checked for completeness and the
instrument has been checked mechanically and electrically.
2. Inspect the whole instrument.
In case there is any mechanical damage or defect, or the instrument
does not operate properly or fails performance tests, notify the SIGLENT
sales representative.
If the shipping container is damaged, or the cushioning materials show
signs of stress, notify the carrier as well as the SIGLENT sales
department. Keep the shipping materials for carrier’s inspection.
3. Check the accessories.
Accessories supplied with the instrument are listed below. If the contents
are incomplete or damaged, notify the SIGLENT sales representative.

Troubleshooting
1. After the waveform generator is powered on, the screen remains
dark, please do the following steps:
(1) Check the power cable’s connection.
(2) Ensure the power switch is turned on.
(3) After the inspections above, restart the waveform generator.
(4) If the generator still doesn’t work after the checking, please connect
with SIGLENT company
2. If there is no signal wave output after setting the parameters, please
do as following steps:
(1) Check whether the BNC cable has connected with output channel or not.
(2) Check whether the output button have been turned on or not.
