AFG3000C Arbitrary / Function Generator

AFG3000C Arbitrary / Function Generator

Today's designs are often complex, demanding a variety of stimulus signals during test. With 12 standard waveforms, arbitrary waveform capability, and signal impairment options, the AFG3000C Series Arbitrary / Function Generator supports a wide range of application needs with one instrument. Best-in-class performance ensures signals are accurately reproduced. A large display and 25 shortcut keys make the AFG3000C Series Arbitrary / Function Generator both easy to learn and easy to use.

Features

Benefits

Dual-channel models Save cost and bench space by replacing two signal generators with one that offers two tightly synchronized or two completely independent signals.
Up to 2 GS/s sample rate Generate waveforms with fine timing resolution.
Up to 20 Vp-p amplitude into 50 Ω load (AFG3011) Save cost and set-up time by creating high amplitude signals without using an external power amplifier.
25 shortcut keys Reduce set-up and evaluation time with direct access to frequently used functions and parameters.
Large 5.6" (142 mm) color display Full confidence in your signal since all relevant settings and waveform graphs can be seen at a single glance.
Only 6.6" (168 mm) deep Free up valuable bench space.
ArbExpress™ software 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.
