Waveform Generators Accelerate Sample Rates
Exhibiting 9.6 GHz effective RF output and 10-bit resolution, Tektronix’s AWG7000B and AWG5000B Series arbitrary waveform generators (AWG) offer sample rates up to 24 GS/s in serial data buses and wideband RF applications. The devices offer signal generation including imperfections, such as noise, jitter, pre/de-emphasis and multi-level signaling up to 8 Gb/s, to assist with prototype, debug, verification and standards compliance. The integrated RFXpress Software Suite’s RDR option creates pulsed radar waveforms for resolving range and doppler ambiguity, frequency hopping for electronic counter counter measures (ECCM) and pulse-to-pulse amplitude variation in UWB-WiMedia bandgroups. The AWGs’ SerialXpress provides software direct synthesis of waveforms and receiver stress testing in SATA, SAS, PCI-Express, HDMI, and DisplayPort technologies. Pricing starts at $28,000 for the 600 MS/s AWG5002B, $65,000 for the 6 GS/s AWG7061B and $5,000 for the RFXpress software package.
