Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced the industry's first pulse function arbitrary noise generator, which provides superior signal quality combined with versatile waveforms. It is suitable for general-purpose bench tests or advanced serial data stress tests.

The Agilent 81150A pulse function arbitrary noise generator provides versatile waveforms for pulse generation as well as noise generation for stress testing. It is the optimum stimulus for use in conjunction with Agilent's 5/6/80000 Infiniium real-time oscilloscope or DCA-J sampling oscilloscope for serial data testing. Its integration into one instrument minimizes cabling, space and test time.

Engineers need to create ideal and worst-case signals to get accurate and accelerated insight into devices and designs such as semiconductor circuits, sensors or modulators. The accurate signals of the Agilent 81150A help engineers test their device, not the signal source. When signal fidelity matters, just enough signal quality is not enough.

"Versatile waveforms and the most precise signals are key contributors for developing quality products with a reduced design cycle," said Alois Hauk, vice president and general manager of digital photonic test at Agilent. "The pulse function arbitrary noise generator supports the engineer through each development phase, and the patented noise generator gives engineers a quantum leap in productivity."

Calibrated and deterministic noise for repeatable stress tests, and random noise generation provide all-in-one capability. Various stress tests can be achieved by simply adjusting the crest factor, an indicator of signal quality using peak-to-peak and root mean square voltages.

Features of the Agilent 81150A pulse function arbitrary noise generator include accurate signals test the device, not the source, with intrinsic jitter of 8ps RMS at any frequency, as well as 13 standard functions, modulation capabilities up to 10MHz and over 80 measurement types. Other features include integration into one instrument, which minimizes cabling, space and test time, and differential output and high-voltage amplifier.

The Agilent 81150A pulse function arbitrary noise generator is available now in one channel and two channel versions. Prices start at $8,900.
