From LeCroy Corp. comes the ArbStudio series of arbitrary waveform generators capable of generating signals up to 125MHz with high sample rate, long memory and high resolution, as well as a variety of operating modes, modulation capabilities and a digital pattern generator.

The software interface that controls the hardware is designed to simplify waveform creation with an intuitive navigation tree that allows easy access to all channels, along with special views for controlling basic function generator outputs as well as pulse width modulation (PWM) capabilities. The ability to have two- and four-channel units in a single, compact form factor not only saves bench space but also provides a low price per channel. Additionally the four-channel ArbStudio models have an expansion port that allows up to eight units to be connected, providing up to 32 synchronous analog waveforms.

Four ArbStudio models are available, including two- and four-channel versions with analog waveform capabilities plus two- and four-channel versions that offer a combination of analog waveform and digital pattern generation capabilities. All models have a bandwidth of 125 MHz, maximum sample rate of 1GSps, long memory of 2Mpts/channel and high 16bit resolution.

The ArbStudio software runs on an external PC, freeing the user from the small displays and readouts found on a typical AWG. A simple function generator window is available for basic waveform creation while a unique, streamlined control panel dedicated for PWM signals is also available.

The two-channel ArbStudio 1102 price is $2,490. The entire product line ranges from $2,490 to $4,990.
