Today Agilent introduces the 33600A Series waveform generators with exclusive Trueform signal generation technology offer more capability, fidelity and flexibility than previous generation Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS) generators. Use them to accelerate your development process from start to finish.
• 1 GSa/s sampling rate and up to 120 MHz bandwidth
• Arbs with sequencing and up to 64 MSa memory
• 1 ps jitter, 200x better than comparable DDS generators
• 5x lower harmonic distortion than DDS
• Compatible with Agilent BenchVue software
Trueform technologyGenerate trueform arbitrary waveforms with less jitter, more idelity and greater resolution Over the past two decades, DDS has been the waveform generation technology of choice in function generators and economical arbitrary waveform generators. DDS enables waveform generators with great frequency resolution, convenient custom waveforms, and a low price.
As with any technology, DDS has its limitations. Engineers with exacting requirements have had to either work around the compromised performance or spend up to 5 times more for a high-end, point-per-clock waveform generator.
Agilent’s Trueform technology offers an alternative that blends the best of DDS and point-per-clock architectures, giving you the benefits of both without the limitations of either. Trueform technology uses an exclusive digital sampling technique that delivers unmatched performance at the same low price you are accustomed to with DDS.
