Agilent unveils new line of waveform generators

Telecom Lead India: Agilent Technologies has introduced a
new family of waveform generators named the 33500B Series waveform

The new family consists of eight new one- and two-channel
models that generate waveforms up to 30 MHz.


Additionally, the models incorporate
Trueform signal-generation technology, which enables these models to offer
capabilities for generating a full range of signals for the most demanding
measurements required when designing electronic devices.


The company claims that the 33500B waveform generators
provide the lowest jitter and lowest total harmonic distortion in their class.


Engineers can place edges more accurately with better
jitter performance, helping them reduce timing errors in their circuit designs.


With total harmonic distortion less than 0.04 percent and
non-harmonic spurs less than 75 dBc, the 33500B Series offers clean signals
that don’t introduce noise, enabling users to get more accurate results.


The 33500B Series allows engineers take advantage of easy
software upgrades to expand the instruments’ capabilities while increasing
bandwidth and add true point-by-point arbitrary waveforms and deeper waveform


The new family features waveform summing and combining
capability that allows engineers to easily add noise to signals for margin and
distortion testing using only a single channel.


Furthermore, it allows engineers to adjust the bandwidth
of the built-in noise generator to control the frequency content of their


Gary Whitman, vice president and general manager of
Agilent’s System Products Division, said that the Trueform technology uses
an exclusive digital sampling technique that delivers unmatched performance at
the same low price customers expect with DDS.


The series also features waveform sequencing,
pseudo-random binary sequence pattern generation and Optional baseband IQ player.
