Dual Channel Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generators

The 4060B Series Dual Channel Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generators are capable of producing precise sine, square, triangle, pulse, and arbitrary waveforms. This series combines the cost saving benefits of both DDS and true point-by-point arbitrary architectures to meet a wide range of applications that require high signal fidelity and low jitter arbitrary waveform generation capabilities.

Dual architecture operation
The 4060B Series arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) architecture can be toggled between conventional DDS or true arbitrary mode. Compared to DDS (Fig. 1), true point-by-point AWG implementation offers improved signal integrity by producing lower jitter and less distortion (Fig. 2). All models are capable of generating 16-bit waveforms up to 300 MSa/s in DDS or 75 MSa/s in true arbitrary mode.

All models in the 4060B Series:
Model Sine Frequency Range Square Frequency Range
4062B 40 MHz 25 MHz
4063B 80 MHz 25 MHz
4064B 120 MHz 25 MHz

The intuitive touchscreen display simplifies control of many features including extensive waveform modulation schemes, linear/logarithmic sweep, burst mode, and variable DC offset. These generators provide system integrators with auxiliary triggering capabilities, and a 10 MHz reference clock for synchronizing multiple instruments.

196 built-in arbitrary waveforms offer a variety of arbitrary test signals for both simple and complex applications. Generate custom arbitrary waveforms and download them to the instrument using the included application software. Alternatively, use the included LabVIEWTM drivers to load .csv or .txt waveform data files directly into the generator’s internal memory.
