Newark element14 is now stocking the Tektronix AFG31000 Arbitrary Function Generator. The new AFG31000 series incorporates four industry firsts that result in an unprecedented user experience for researchers and engineers:
A nine-inch capacitive touch display and a shallow menu tree make locating and changing settings quicker, while also making browsing easier.
The ability to monitor the generated waveform on the device under test in real time using InstaView. This simplifies the user’s job by verifying what the generated waveform looks like in real time when the signal is put out from the AFG31000 to the test point in the circuit under test. InstaView™ eliminates the need to use an oscilloscope to probe at that test point and as such adds confidence for users.
An advanced sequence mode for creating long or complex waveforms makes the AFG31000 an alternative for users who need long, non-repeating waveforms, or multiple waveforms with complex timing.
The ability to “draw” a waveform on-screen with fingertips using the built-in waveform creation tool. The built-in ArbBuilder enables arbitrary waveform creation and editing software eliminates the need to connect to a PC or use a USB drive to load arbitrary waveforms.
The generator is available in one- and two-channel models, each having an output amplitude range from 1 mVP-P to 10 VP-P into 50-Ω loads. A wide range of operating modes are available including:
· Sine waves from 25 to 250 MHz
· Sampling (at 14-bit vertical resolution) from 250 MS/sec to 2 GS/sec,
· Continuous, modulation, sweeping and burst run modes (with 128 kpoints arbitrary waveform memory on each channel).
A variety of more complex waveforms are also available in the advanced sequence mode, which adds value for design or failure analysis from engineers by verifying whether their circuit will operate as planned or how it will respond under extreme or stressed conditions.
The Tektronix AFG31000 Arbitrary Function Generator is available from Farnell element14 in EMEA, Newark element14 in North America and element14 in Asia Pacific.
