Arb Rider AWG-5000 Pulse Generator

6GS/s 16 bit arbitrary waveform generator

Fast Pulse Generator – up to 5Vpp amplitude

The ARB Rider AWG-5000 Series is the world’s fastest 2, 4 and 8 channels pulse generators equipped with a 16 bit resolution Digital to Analog converter. Single pulse or double pulse can be programmed in few seconds thanks to the easy-to-use user interface.  AWG-5000 Pulse Generator series offers 6.16 Gs/s update rate, 5Vpp output voltage range, 110 ps Rise/Fall time, and up to 4 GSamples memory depth, making this product the ideal choice for Automotive, Aerospace & Defense, Big Physics and Semiconductor Test applications.
Up to 8 analog channels per unit and up to 32 digital lines (TTL or LVDS standards) allow the user to create a mixed-signal generation setup to generate analog and digital stimuli.

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

Moreover, the Serial Data Pattern Generator option, allows you to generate a stream of binary information through the front end SMA connectors with an update rate of 1.54 Gbps: built-in PRBS sequences, modulation features, transition shaping, and the flexibility of a powerful analog front-end makes the SPG the perfect tool for the most challenging applications.

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.
