Wide range Frequency Sweep
Phase continuous sweep is available
for all standard and arbitrary waveforms except for
The sweep range is from 1uHz through
to the maximum for the chosen carrier waveform and start
and stop frequencies can be set independently.
The sweep can be linear or
logarithmic, triggered or continuous with a period
between 1ms and 500s. The sweep trigger can be manual or
internal from the trigger generator or external from the
trigger socket or from a remote interface command.
A marker is provide that outputs a
pulse at any frequency point within the sweep.
In Burst mode, each active edge of
the trigger will produce one burst of the waveform.
The number of cycles in a burst can
be set between 1 and 16,777,215 (or infinite). The burst
starts and ends at a waveform phase angle settable
-360.0 to +360.0 degrees.
The trigger signal can
be manual from the front panel key, internal from the
internal trigger generator, external from the trigger-in
socket, or remote via a bus command.
The trigger-in socket has a nominal
TTL threshold and can be set to +ve edge or -ve edge
triggering. The minimum trigger pulse width is 50ns.
The internal trigger generator is
variable between 2mHz and 1MHz with 9 digit resolution.
In Gated mode the waveform runs
only when the gate signal is true. The start point of
the waveform is settable from -360.0 to +360.0 degrees
and a the last cycle is completed after the gate signal
All of the options available for
triggering are available for gating. The trigger-in
socket can be set as high or low for true.
