 2ch 33522A waveform generator

Agilent Technologies Inc. expands its 33500 Series family of function/arbitrary waveform generators with the 1ch 33521A and 2ch 33522A waveform generators.

The generators claim the lowest total harmonic distortion and jitter in their class. They have a large graphical display for simultaneous parameter setup, signal viewing and editing. They also offer more precise functions and true point-by-point arbitrary waveforms that are alias-protected for exceptional accuracy.

The Agilent 33500 Series function/arbitrary waveform generators feature 30MHz sine, square and pulse waveform bandwidth to cover more applications; less than 40ps jitter and total harmonic distortion of .04 percent providing greater signal fidelity; 250MSps, 16bit sampling rate for higher time-resolution arbitrary waveforms; true point-by-point arbitrary waveforms for more accurate representation of user-defined signals; USB and LAN (LXI-C) for easy connectivity; and a TCXO timebase (standard) and OCXO (optional) for ultra-high stability.

The Agilent 33521A and 33522A 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.

The Agilent 33521A 1-channel function/arbitrary waveform generator's price starts at $1,930; the 33522A 2-channel function/arbitrary waveform generator starts at $2,950. Both instruments are available now. Higher arbitrary waveform memory, higher stability timebase and GPIB interface options also are available.
