Budget function/arbitrary waveform generator offers 60 MHz b/w

October 08, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Compared to scope-based signal generators or standalone AFGs in its price class, Tektronix says its AFG1000 series of instruments offers better performance and greater flexibility.

The AFG1062 expands the series with two equally capable channels, 60 MHz bandwidth with 1 mVpp to 10 Vpp output amplitude, 14-bit vertical resolution and 1 µHz frequency resolution. It provides a 300 Msample/sec rate along with 1M points record length and USB memory expansion for user-defined waveforms.

With the addition of the AFG1062, Tektronix now offers educational institutions the industry's most complete set of affordable instruments including oscilloscopes, signal generators, digital multi-meters and power supplies, all tied together with the TekSmartLab wireless lab instrument management solution.

The AFG1062 includes 50 built-in standard functions and arbitrary waveforms with continuous, modulation, sweep and burst modes to cover a broad range of applications. The instrument has a 3.95-in TFT colour display, shortcut buttons and a rotary knob for quick setting adjustments. Its compact form factor saves bench space.

The AFG1062 is priced at $999.
