Telonic Instruments is introducing Rigol’s new DG1000Z series of arbitrary waveform generators which is the latest development in in this family of fast, low cost, easy to use professional test instruments .
The DG1000Z series help engineers to accomplish a wide range of testing applications by combining many functions in one easy to use instrument. Functions include arbitrary waveform generator, function generator, pulse generator, harmonic generator, harmonic generator and analogue / digital modulator.
This series incorporates Rigol’s Direct Digital Synthesiser (DDS) technology ensuring that signals are delivered with stability, precision, purity and low distortion. These high quality products with the innovative SiFi (Signal Fidelity) can generate arbitrary waveforms point by point and allow precisely adjustable sample rates and low jitter (200ps).
The arbitrary waveform memory is available with 8 Mpts (standard) and 16 Mpts (optional). Two full functional channels can be used as independent generators offering + or – 1 ppm frequency stability and -125 dBc /Hz phase noise. The instruments have a built in 8 orders harmonics generator and a built in 7 digits full function frequency counter with 200MHz bandwidth.
Users can choose from up to 160 built in waveforms with 14 bits vertical resolution and can benefit from a convenient arbitrary waveform editing interface. Versatile modulation types include AM, FM, PM, ASK, FSK, PSK and PWM. The instruments offer standard interfaces USB Host and Device and LAN ( LXI Core Device 2011) and a 3.5″ TFT colour display. All models are supported by the Ultra Station PC software tool.
There are two models in this series of Arbitrary Waveform Generators, 30MHz and 60MHz. The cost starts at £369-00 and details can be found on Telonic’s dedicated Rigol web site www.rigol-uk.co.uk.
