New arbitrary/function generator range
2 November 2005, Test & Measurement

Tektronix' new AFG3000 Series of arbitrary/function generators (AFG) consists of six models whose ease-of-use and performance establishes a new benchmark in the 'value' category. According to the company, the AFG3000 Series gives engineers a powerful function, pulse, and arbitrary waveform generator to shorten test time and reduce time from design to market.

Customers in a wide array of industries are working on new electronic circuitry of increasingly higher speeds. The design and test of this circuitry often requires one or more simulated input signals from a missing or difficult to obtain component or sensor. These signals can be as simple as an audio frequency or clock signal, or more complex such as a serial data stream or signal from an airbag sensor during a crash.

Arbitrary/function generators are often the instrument of choice, but users routinely outgrow the capabilities of existing test equipment. Tektronix' AFG3000 Series has an innovative architecture based on a powerful 'generator on a chip' (GoC) ASIC. At the same time, the platform's user interface is straightforward and easy to use, and provides a large display.

The six models that comprise the series address the problem for engineers, who need to test electronic circuits with one or more signal inputs and sine waveforms at frequencies up to 240 MHz, generate arbitrary waveforms up to 2 GS/s, obtain up to 1 ppm clock stability, and who desire an intuitive graphical user interface.

The models at the top of the series will appeal to designers developing high-performance computing or communications equipment and video products. The more basic models will attract users in colleges and trade schools, as well as designers of consumer electronics, medical and automotive systems.
