    The 33250A function / arbitrary waveform generator was discontinued December 1, 2016 and is replaced by next-generation 33600A Series Trueform waveform generators. The last day to place an order for these products was November 30, 2016. Committed to providing world-class customer support, Keysight will continue to support these products for the standard period of 5 years.

    The Keysight 33250A is a full-featured 80 MHz Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generator with pulse capabilities. It not only provides a wide variety of waveforms, including pulse, but also arbitrary waveforms with 12-bit resolution, 64K memory depth, and a sample rate of 200 MSa/s. In addition, it has sweep, burst, and modulation capabilities all in a half-width package. With standard features such as external clock reference, GPIB, and RS-232, the 33250A is perfectly suited for stand alone bench and system applications. The Keysight 33250A's performance, unique combination of features and low price set it apart from the competition.

    Quick results, no matter how you use it.
    From the color display to on-screen help to preprogrammed waveshapes, the Keysight 33250A simplifies your testing chores. Whether it's a clean sine wave or an exponential decay, the 33250A provides ready-to-use signals at the touch of a button.
    Powerful arbitrary waves for unique test challenges.
    The 33250A expands the speed and depth of the arbitrary waveform feature introduced in the popular 33120A, with four times the memory and five times the sample rate.
    Create the right waveform the first time, every time.
    The color graphical display, softkey menus and graph mode work together to help you create complex waveforms. Follow the softkeys and on-screen help to set up your waveform, then verify the results with graph mode.
    Pulses adjusted quickly and easily.
    Generates simple pulses up to 50 MHz with variable rise/fall time, pulse width and voltage level.

    The Keysight 33250A offers all the waveforms you need for the vast majority of electronic and electromechanical test needs up to 80 MHz. Standard outputs include sine, square, ramp, noise, sin(x)/x, dc volts and more. Plus, the built-in pulse generator provides a simple way to replicate clock and control signals, and perform other digital tests.

    When a standard signal isn't enough, the 33250A both simplifies the process of creating arbitrary waveforms and expands the performance of these powerful custom signals. Now, with sample rates up to 200 MSa/s, 12-bit resolution and memory depth of 64 K points, you can create an unlimited variety of unique signals that match the exact needs of your applications. Plus, the graphical user interface makes arb creation easier than ever.

    AM, FM and FSK capabilities make it easy to modulate waveforms with or without a separate source. Linear or logarithmic sweeps can be performed with a programmable frequency marker signal. Programmable burst count and gating allow you to further customize your signal. For system applications, both GPIB and RS-232 interfaces are standard, and support full programmability using SCPI commands.

    The 33250A TCXO timebase gives you frequency accuracy of 1 ppm for your most demanding applications. The external clock reference input/output lets you synchronize to an external 10 MHz clock, to another 33250A, or to a Keysight 33120A. Phase adjustments can be made from the front panel or via a computer interface, allowing precise phase calibration and adjustment.

    Custom Waveform Generation
    Why settle for a basic function generator when you can get arbitrary waveforms at no extra cost? With the 33250A, you can generate arbitrary waveforms with 12-bit vertical resolution, 64K memory depth, and a sample rate of 200 MSa/s. You can also store up to four 64K-deep arbitrary waveforms in non-volatile memory with user-defined names to help you find the right waveform when you need it most. The included Keysight BenchVue Software allows you to easily create, edit, and download complex waveforms using BenchVue Software.

    Includes manuals on CD, quick reference guide, BenchVue Software, test data, RS-232 cable and power cord.
