Performance boosted on Tek’s ARB generators @ 150 MHz

August 19, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Tektronix has expanded its AFG3000C Arbitrary/Function Generator Series with two 150 MHz models (one or two channels) that deliver increased performance while holding the line on pricing.

Slotting between existing 100 MHz and 240 MHz models in the Tektronix AFG3000C lineup, the FG3151C and AFG3152C deliver 25% more bandwidth and 59% more output zone with ±5 VDC offset, at the same price as competitive offering in this segment. AFG3000 units have an intuitive user interface that shows more information at a single glance, boosting productivity by allowing users to focus on the task at hand.

All models in the AFG3000C Series include 12 standard waveforms, arbitrary waveform capability, and signal impairment options to support a wide range of application needs with one instrument. A large display and 25 shortcut keys simplify learning and use. Included ArbExpress software allows waveforms to be created from any Tektronix oscilloscope, or defined by standard functions, equation editor and waveform math.

The 150 MHz bandwidth AFG3000C Arbitrary/Function Generators are priced at (one-channel AFG3151C) $4,690 and (two-channel AFG3152C) $6,690.
