Dual Channel Arbitrary Function Generator with 80 and 160MHz models TGF3000 Series

TGF3162   Dual Channel Arbitrary Function Generator 160MHz

TGF3082   Dual Channel Arbitrary Function Generator 80MHz


The TGF3000 series of function/arbitrary generators offers signal generation capability up to 160MHz on two identical full performance channels that can operate independently or in coupled or tracking modes. Precise channel to channel phase control with a resolution of 0.001° is provided.

A wide range of built-in waveforms is included and custom arbitrary waveforms can be used at sample speeds up to 800MS/s and replay rates up to 80MHz. PC based arbitrary waveform generation and editing software is provided.

High resolution, low jitter pulses can be generated as can wide bandwidth white noise. A extensive array of modulations is provided using internal and external sources. Gated, burst and sweep modes can use internal or external trigger sources.

Remote control via USB and LXI compliant LAN (standard) can be supplemented by optional GPIB if required.
