Economical new 5MHz sweep signal generators offer versatility

19-03-2015 | Saelig | Test & Measurement

The Siglent SDG805 function / arbitrary waveform generator is now available from Saelig. The instrument outputs sine, square, ramp, and pulse waveforms to 5MHz with a 14-bit sampling rate of 125MSa/s at up to +/-20V.

The SDG805 features patented EasyPulse technology which produces low jitter and fast rising and falling edges that are not frequency-dependent even at low duty cycle settings, thus allowing a wide range of pulse widths and transition times. Using EasyPulse technology results in a much more versatile generator than competitive designs. The SDG805 Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generator uses Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS) technology, which can provide stable, high-precision, low distortion signals.

Multiple modulation functions are included in the SDG805: AM, FM, PM, ASK, FSK, PWM, DSB-AM, linear/logarithmic sweep and burst. SDG805 Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generator has a clear, straight-forward front-panel; the user-friendly layout with built-in instructions and help system greatly simplify operation - users will quickly be able to use the SDG805 proficiently. The built-in modulation functions generate modulated waveforms easily, without needing an external modulating source. USB host and USB device interfaces are provided, with GPIB available as a factory-fitted option.

The SDG805 can be seamlessly connected to any Siglent oscilloscope for waveform display or reproduction of measured signals. Multiple custom arbitrary waveforms can be created, configurable with the powerful arbitrary waveform editing software EasyWave supplied with the generator; up to 10 user waveforms can be saved in nonvolatile storage. Additionally, 46 built-in types of arbitrary waveforms are provided.

The instrument's combination of comprehensive system features, ease of use and versatile functionality make it an ideal general-purpose signal source. Applications include research and education, IC and circuit testing, environmental and medical signal simulation, etc.
