The 33521A 1-channel and the 33522A 2-channel function/arbitrary waveform generators from Agilent Technologies Inc. are designed to provide the lowest total harmonic distortion and jitter in their class.
The generators’ graphical display allows for simultaneous parameter setup, signal viewing and editing. The generator also offers precise functions and true point-by-point arbitrary waveforms that are alias-protected for exceptional accuracy.
The Agilent 33500 series provide 30 MHz sine, square and pulse waveform bandwidth to cover more applications and less than 40 ps jitter and total harmonic distortion of .04 percent providing greater signal fidelity.
The 250 Msamples/s, 16-bit sampling rate is useful for higher time-resolution arbitrary waveforms and the true point-by-point arbitrary waveforms provide accurate representation of user-defined signals. USB and LAN (LXI-C) are included to ease connectivity a TCXO timebase (standard) and OCXO (optional) enables ultra-high stability.
The function/arbitrary waveform generators are fully compliant with the LXI Class C Specification. The generators 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 of generators can connect with Agilent’s current line of function/arbitrary waveform generators (33210A, 33220A, 33250A) using the GPIB interface option.
Both instruments are available now. Higher arbitrary waveform memory, higher stability timebase and GPIB interface options also are available.
