Arbitrary Waveform Generators (AWG) and Function Generators (FG and AFG) are aimed primarily at analog and mixed-signal applications.
AWGs may generate stimulus to test or troubleshoot everything from an amplifier or a receiver operating at RF with a specific digital modulation, to a digital parallel bus, moreover it can, if required, add noise or distortion to simulate real world signals. In the case in which an engineer needs to characterize a new device but cannot have the complete system or sensors set delivering signals to his device, the solution is a signal generator that provides waveforms to simulate the presence of the real system.
Whether you require a clean, low distortion sine wave, a variable-edge-time pulse or a complex custom waveform Active Technologies family of waveform and Fast Pulse Generators provides the right choice.
Moreover Active Technologies Pattern generators, typically provide 16,32 or even more synchronized digital pulse streams as a stimulus signal for computer buses, digital telecom elements, and more.
Active Technologies AWGs can be used also as pulse generators to offer fast risetimes, adjustable amplitudes and programmable offset.
Several engineers are testing their devices, the requirement is to have a powerful measurement instrument to better check circuitry output and validate it with the confidence that the equipment is not introducing aberrations.
Our solution may impact in several applications from advance research in nuclear Physics to Defence Electronics or Radar emulation.
Industrial markets are now getting into the complex signals protocols that may require advance signal generation system to better analyze and emulate critical signals.
This task is feasible only if a full-range, flexible, solid and fast-to-use Arbitrary Waveform Generator, which allows exploring every boundary of the device being analysed, completes our test instrumentation.
