High Waveform Quality
The generators offer high waveform
quality with low distortion and aberrations.
This high quality is available over
a wide amplitude range of 20mV to 20V pk-pk emf (10mV to
10V into 50 Ohms).
Unlike some other generators, the
full amplitude is available over the full frequency
Intelligent Amplitude Display
Amplitudes can be displayed as peak to peak or as RMS
values, with the rms being correctly calculated for the
RMS values can alternatively be specified in dBm.
If preferred values can be entered in terms of high
level and low level instead of amplitude and offset.
The amplitudes are shown relative to the selected load
impedance which is 50 Ohms by default, but can be
selected as any impedance between 1 Ohm and 10kOhm.
The Sync output provides
a logic level signal that can perform a number of
functions intended for synchronisation with external
Normal Waveform Sync
Trigger signal out
Note that the
Sweep Sync signal also provides the sweep marker signal.
Rear Panel Inputs and Outputs
rear panel of the generators has four sockets:
External Modulation Input - for
AM, FM, PM and PWM external modulation.
Trigger Input - for external triggering of
Burst, Gated or Sweep waveforms.
Reference Clock Input - for use with an
external frequency reference
or phase locking of two
Reference Clock Output -
a buffered version of whichever clock (internal or
external) that the generator is using.
output level can be specified as
pk-pk, rms or dBm
and is corrected for waveform shape
Hi level and Lo level can be used instead of
amplitude and offset
the output level is corrected to suit different
the Sync output can perform a
wide range of functions
