AFG2000 Arbitrary / Function Generator

AFG2000 Arbitrary / Function Generator

Usually, generating a range of signals requires investment in a high-end signal generator. Introducing the Tektronix AFG2000. With 20 MHz bandwidth, 14-bit resolution, and 250 MS/s sample rate, the AFG2021 Arbitrary / Function Generator can create simple and complex signals. But perhaps its most impressive feature is its entry-level price.

Features

Benefits

1 uHz to 20 MHz frequency range Covers most use cases for low end R&D, education, and ATE applications.
250 MS/s sample rate  and ±1ppm time base Create precise, high fidelity signals with long term stability.
14 bit vertical resolution Create complex waveforms with programmable voltage steps in the sub millivolt range.
3.5 inch color TFT display The color display simultaneously shows waveforms parameters in text and graphical formats, giving you full confidence of your settings and allowing you to focus on your designs.
Innovative UI based on the popular AFG3000 design Provides quick and easy access to both commonly used features and more complex waveform editing functions.
2U height and half rack width form factor Ideal for both bench top and rack mount applications.
ArbExpress™  software ArbExpress enables you to create and modify waveforms with ease.  Import waveforms seamlessly from your Tektronix oscilloscope or create them via the equation editor, free hand, point draw or waveform math tools.
SignalExpress™ software SignalExpress provides an intuitive drag-and-drop interface  for basic instrument control,  data logging, data analysis, measurement trending and documentation.
Standard 3 year warranty Reduces the risk of line down situations and costly time to market delays.
