Teledyne LeCroy announced availability of the High Definition arbitrary waveform generators (AWGs). The dual-channel AWGs are branded T3AWG3252 (250 MHz) and T3AWG3352 (350 MHz) and offer 16 bits of vertical voltage resolution, an output voltage window of up to ±24 V, and waveform memory of up to 1 GS/channel. In addition to being AWGs, these highly versatile Teledyne Test Tools (T3) are able to function as arbitrary function generators or digital pattern generators. These instruments complement Teledyne LeCroy’s High Definition 12-bit oscilloscopes for stimulus-response test applications in automotive; component/semiconductor test; aerospace; and physics, research, and university lab settings.
Three functional modes are available in the T3AWG3252/3352 AWGs. They can operate as arbitrary function generators with a large variety of waveform options, providing versatile modulation capabilities. As an AWG, the instruments deliver complex and completely arbitrary waveforms with the ability to sequence analog/digital patterns using an intuitive user interface. In digital pattern generator (DPG) mode, users may create completely arbitrary differential or single-ended digital patterns at up to eight parallel bits. The instruments’ eight digital outputs can be combined and synchronized with their two analog output signals, providing an ideal tool for debugging and validating digital designs (more info).
