Santa Clara, California: The Agilent Technologies 81180A bridges the tradeoff between bandwidth and bits. It’s a new class of instrument, an arbitrary waveform generator that provides greater bandwidth and higher resolution.
Until now, engineers had to decide between the optimal bandwidth and optimal signal quality for their application. But many of today’s applications require high bandwidth and high signal quality. The advanced sequencing in the 81180A supports complex arbitrary waveforms.
Three levels of sequencing, combined with a 64-Mpoint memory, allow engineers to set up complex real-world signals. The dynamic control connector lets real-time applications control the waveform and enables external select sequences.
