Arbitrary Waveform Generators

2, 4 and 8 channel Arbitrary Waveform Generators

Active Technologies Arbitrary Waveform Generators meet the demand of today’s engineers offering a wide variety of signal types: analog, digital, mixed-signal and multi-channel applications can be covered by Active Technologies instruments.

The AWG (Arbitrary Waveform Generator) and AFG (Arbitrary Function Generator) family helps you to generate with confidence waveforms of almost any imaginable shape: complex signals like digital modulations, RF stimuli for functional and performance tests, radar simulation, optical communication and electronic warfare can be created through an easy to use interface.

The modular structure of AWGs allows to build systems with 2, 4, 8, 16 or 32 channels and sample rate from 250 Ms/s to 6.16 Gs/s combined with 14 and 16 bit resolution. The combination with Digital output Channels (up to 32 digital channel per instrument) make each instrument a real MSG (Mixed Signal Generator) solution.
