Agilent's New Family of 30 MHz Function / Arbitrary Waveform Generators: single channel 33521A and dual channel 33522A

Today August 1st Agilent is introducing its new family of 30 MHz Function / Arbitrary Waveform Generators. There is a one and two channel version, the 33521A is the one channel and the 33522A is the two channel version. They really raise the bar in the function / arbitrary waveform generator instrument class and here is a quick run down of some of their key features:
- 30 MHz sine, square, and pulse bandwidth
- 250 MSa/s 16 bit true point-by-point arbitrary waveform generation
- Dual-channel mode with independent or coupled channels
- 1 MSa waveform memory standard, 16 MSa memory (optional)
- Arbitrary waveform sequencing capability
- < 40 ps jitter and less than .04% total harmonic distortion
- All the standard modulation capability you would expect plus waveform summing

I have been biting my tongue waiting to blog about this awesome product family! Over the last couple months I have had the privilege to use and test the 3352xA family since its early days as a prototype. One thing I love about the 3352xA family is how easy it is to create complex waveforms. First off there is the 250 MSa/s 16 bit arb with 1 Msa memory standard to create complex arbs. Besides that there is a long list of other features that allow you to create and manipulate waveforms. I am not going to get into them here but I will in future posts.

Besides being rich in features, the 3352xA is just a 'sexy' fun instrument to use. It was comparable to my first computer or smartphone where I just couldn't take my hands off of it and had to explore and test every feature. It comes with a large, color, graphical display and has a hardkey / softkey setup (like a scope) that makes it easy to navigate its many features. Now the case could be made that I am a little bias since I work for Agilent so I encourage you to check it out yourself by following the link below or contacting your Agilent rep.

  6. People who are study physics related subjects then must come this post which have content about the frequency, function and wave. A relation has showed using a device in this post. However, I try to get my answer about how can I order an essay but hope this will be fine for all student.
