Tektronix AWGs Handle Mixed-Signal Devices

Built on the same platform as the AWG7000 series, the AWG5000 series arbitrary waveform generators (AWGs) deliver high-resolution signals for testing both analog and digital baseband and intermediate-frequency circuits in mixed-signal devices. The instruments are capable of testing software-defined radios and radars, WiMAX, WiFi, MIMO, and UWB. They provide variable sample rates up to 1.2 Gsamples/s, either two or four analog channels, and up to 28 digital outputs. The series consists of four models, offering two and four analog channels with two versions of each, variable sample rates up to 600 Msamples/s and 1.2 Gsamples/s, and up to 28 digital outputs. All four models feature a 14-bit vertical resolution enabling signal generation with an 80-dB SFDR and two digital markers per analog channel. The 2-channel versions feature an option for two 14-bit parallel digital outputs. Other shared features include a 10.4" LCD color touchscreen, an intuitive user interface employing Windows XP, plus Gigabit Ethernet and GPIB interfaces. Pricing for the AWG5000 series starts at $25,000 for the AWG5002. TEKTRONIX INC., Beaverton, OR. (800) 426-2200.
