Saelig Company Inc. is offering the Siglent SDG805 function/arbitrary waveform generator, which outputs sine, square, ramp, and pulse waveforms to 5 MHz with a 14-bit sampling rate of 125 MS/s at up to ±20V. The SDG805 features Siglent’s patented EasyPulse technology, which produces low jitter and fast rising and falling edges that are not frequency-dependent even at low duty cycle settings, thus allowing a wide range of pulse widths and transition times. The SDG805 uses direct digital synthesis (DDS) technology, which can provide stable, high-precision, low distortion signals.
Multiple modulation functions are included in the SDG805: AM, FM, PM, ASK, FSK, PWM, DSB-AM, linear/logarithmic sweep, and burst. The SDG805 has a clear, straightforward front-panel; the user-friendly layout with built-in instructions and help system simplify operation. The built-in modulation functions generate modulated waveforms easily, without needing an external modulating source. USB host and USB device interfaces are provided, with GPIB available as a factory-fitted option.
The SDG805 can be seamlessly connected to any Siglent oscilloscope for waveform display or reproduction of measured signals. Multiple custom arbitrary waveforms can be created, configurable with the powerful arbitrary waveform editing software EasyWave supplied with the generator; up to 10 user waveforms can be saved in nonvolatile storage. Additionally, 46 built-in kinds of arbitrary waveforms are provided.
Applications include research and education, IC and circuit testing, and environmental and medical signal simulation. Housed in a, rugged 11″ x 9″ x 4″ case with built-in prop stand, the SDG805 AWG is available now at $248.00.
