Byte Paradigm has released the Wave Generator Xpress, a PC-controlled arbitrary digital waveform generator (pattern generator) on USB. Controlled through a USB 2.0 high-speed interface, this new product targets ASIC, FPGA, DAC and digital board verification and characterization, especially for post-manufacturing IC and board system prototype functional test.

Wave Generator Xpress generates up to 16bits arbitrary patterns at up to 50MHz. The device also features six additional control lines for I/O clock management and autonomous repetitive sequence generation synchronized with data. Maximum data depth per run is 100MByte in case the data is streamed directly from the PC over the USB link.

Wave Generator Xpress is delivered with the 8PI Control Panel software, ADWG mode of operation, that includes a Windows GUI, a TCL/tk scripting interface and a C/C++ API. This allows controlling the Wave Generator Xpress from within custom environments (e.g. developed in Visual Basic). Wave Generator Xpress is offered for 450 euro or about $699.
