The TG5011A/5012A significantly out-performs other
generators in their price range by offering both sine and
square waves up to 50MHz.
cost TG2511A/2512A are limited to 25MHz.
These instruments generate high purity sine waves with low harmonic
distortion and low phase noise.
Square waves have a rise time of below 8ns (13ns on
25MHz models) and low
overshoot. Variable symmetry can be used up to 25MHz,
although the Pulse Function is more appropriate for wide
duty cycle waveforms.
Triangle and Ramp
High quality triangle and variable symmetry ramp
waveforms are available up to 1MHz (50MHz models) or 500kHz
These waveforms are also available at higher frequencies
via the arbitrary function but without symmetry
adjustment and with poorer waveform quality as the
Exceptional frequency precision
frequency of these waveforms can be set with up to 14
digits or one micro hertz of resolution.
The DDS based frequency generation system uses a TCXO
timebase oscillator with a stability of 1ppm.
The high resolution of
the DDS system means that very low frequencies can be
For example, a frequency of
around 1mHz could be set with a resolution of 0.1% and a
stability of 1ppm
