Rigol offers arbitrary waveform generators with deep memory

October 23, 2013 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Rigol Technologies' DG1000Z series arbitrary waveform generators help engineers to accomplish a wide range of testing applications by combining many functions in one instrument. Functions include Arbitrary Waveform Generator, Function Generator, Pulse Generator, Harmonic Generator, and Analog/Digital Modulator.

The DG1000Z series also incorporates Rigol's Direct Digital Synthesiser (DDS) technology, ensuring that signals are delivered with stability, precision, purity and low distortion. These arbitrary waveform generators with SiFi (Signal Fidelity) can generate arbitrary waveforms point-by-point, restore signal distortionless and allow precisely adjustable sample rates and low jitter (200 psec).

The arbitrary waveform memory is available with 8 Mpts (standard) and 16 Mpts (optional). Two channels can be used as two independent generators offering ±1ppm frequency stability and -125 dBc/Hz phase noise. The instruments have a built-in 8 orders harmonics generator and a built-in 7 digits/sec full function frequency counter with 200 MHz bandwidth. Users can choose from up to 160 built-in waveforms with 14 bits vertical resolution and can use a convenient arbitrary waveform editing interface. Modulation types include AM, FM, PM, ASK, FSK, PSK and PWM. The instruments offer standard USB Host & Device and LAN (LXI Core Device 2011) interfaces and a 3.5 in. TFT colour display. All models are supported by the Ultra Station PC software tool.

There are 2 models of the DG1000Z Series Arbitrary Waveform Generators: 30 MHz and 60 MHz, and pricing starts at €467.Rigol's portfolio of Arbitrary Function Generators ranges from a 20 MHz low cost model up to the 2 channels DG5000 family (70 – 350 MHz, 14 Bit and 128 million points of memory).
