AWG70000 Series

Tektronix, a provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation, today unveiled its next generation of arbitrary waveform generators, offering up to 50GS/s sample rate performance.

With what is claimed to be the industry’s best combination of high sample rate, long waveform memory and deep dynamic range, Tektronix says the AWG70000 series supports a wide range of demanding signal generation requirements in defence electronics, high-speed serial, optical networking and advanced research applications.

As data rates and signal complexity continue to increase across all electronics and RF segments, engineers and researchers need more advanced signal generators to fully stress test designs or to perform cutting-edge research.

The AWG70000 Series meets this need with its unique combination of 50GS/s sample rate performance, 16GS of waveform memory, and 10bit vertical resolution. This means it produces fast, clean signals that can be routed through a receiver or other device under test for long periods of time for truly comprehensive testing.

'The AWG70000 series represents a significant advance for customers who are pushing against today’s performance boundaries and need a more powerful way to generate accurate test signals at high sample rates,' said Jim McGillivary, general manager of the source analyser product line, Tektronix.

'This next generation of arbitrary waveform generators further extends Tektronix’s long track record of leadership and innovation in advanced signal generation technologies.'
