The T3AWG3252’s analog/digital synchronized output represents a valuable tool to simulate, troubleshoot, or validate digital designs.
Saelig Company, Inc. has introduced the Teledyne LeCroy T3AWG3252 Multifunctional 16-bit Arbitrary/Function Generators that are designed with an innovative architecture that features synchronized analog signal and digital pattern generation. This multifunction 250MHz arbitrary/sweep/function generator combines multiple functions in a single instrument, including a two-channel function and arbitrary waveform generator with an eight-channel digital pattern generator. These three different functionalities are based on an advanced Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS) technology which allows glitch-free on-the-fly changes of all parameters while preserving the selected waveform shapes. All controls and settings are available with touch/swipe gestures on the color LCD. This makes it east to change channels, select the carrier, access the modulation parameters, access the waveform gallery to quickly import a chosen signal, or use the virtual numeric keyboard to change parameter values.
The variable clock, true-arbitrary technology of the Arbitrary Waveform (AWG) / Digital Pattern Generator lets the user create complex signals of synchronized analog waveforms as well as digital patterns. Users can create signals in a sequence, or apply loops, jumps, and conditional branches. The analog/digital synchronized outputs represent a valuable tool to simulate, troubleshoot, or validate digital designs. Users can use the waveform sequencer to generate quite complex or very long signals with multiple waveform shapes. The AWG mode uses a variable or synchronized sample rate ‘True-Arb’ technology to suit applications requiring extremely high signal fidelity. The platform’s deep memory enables the capability to store numerous long waveforms.
