SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 18, 2010 — Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced the 33521A one-channel and the 33522A two-channel function/arbitrary waveform generators.
They deliver low jitter and low total harmonic distortion for challenging measurement applications. Their large graphical display allows for simultaneous parameter set up, signal viewing and editing. The generators also offer more precise functions and true point-by-point arbitrary waveforms that are alias-protected for high accuracy.
They feature full-bandwidth pulses; 30-MHz sine, square and pulse waveform bandwidth to cover more applications; <40-ps jitter and total harmonic distortion of .04% for greater signal fidelity; a 16-bit sampling rate for higher time-resolution arbitrary waveforms; true point-by-point arbitrary waveforms for more accurate representation of user-defined signals; USB and LAN (LXI-C) for easy connectivity; and a standard temperature-controlled crystal oscillator timebase and an optional oven-controlled crystal oscillator timebase for ultrahigh stability.
The arbitrary waveform generators are fully compliant with the LXI Class C specification. They include USB 2.0 and 10/100 Base-T Ethernet (LAN) for quick and easy connectivity to a PC or a network. A built-in Web page allows remote operation of the instrument from any browser. The 33500 series generators can connect with the company's current line of function/arbitrary waveform generators (33210A, 33220A, 33250A) using the general-purpose interface bus (GPIB) option.
Higher arbitrary waveform memory, higher stability timebase and GPIB interface options also are available.
