Arb Rider AWG-5000 Arbitrary Waveform Generator

World’s Fastest 16 Bit Arbitrary Waveform Generator

The ARB Rider AWG-5000 is the world’s fastest 16 bit Arbitrary Waveform Generator: 6.16 GS/s real time update rate (12.32 GS/s in RF mode) and 16 bit vertical resolution. Available in 2, 4 or 8 channel models, Arb Rider AWG-5000 is the fastest  AFG (Arbitrary Function Generator) in the world, reaching up to 2 GHz sine wave. Thanks to Simple Rider software, AWG-5000 offers best in class performances and extremely easy to use interface.

2 GHz bandwidth, up to 5Vpp output range and up to 4 Gsample memory depth, makes the AWG-5000 is the ideal choice for Physics Experiments, Quantum computers, and Aerospace & Defense applications.

Thanks to the integrated up conversion functionality (RF MODE) it’s possible generate signals up to 6 GHz

No Compromise on analog performances: the fast rise time of 110ps can be achieved at maximum amplitude of 5Vpp

Up to 32 digital channel option, combined with 2, 4 or 8 analog channels make the AWG-5000 a full featured mix signal generator. It’s now possible generate up to 8 analog signals fully synchronized with 32 digital lines (LVTTL or LVDS standards)

A dedicated intra-chassis synchronization bus, allow multi-instrument synchronization up to 4 units: 32 analog channels and 128 digital channels for the most powerful mixed signal generator in the world.
