    Generate Trueform arbitrary waveforms with less jitter and more fidelity
    The new 33600A Series of waveform generators with exclusive Trueform Technology offer more capability, fidelity and flexibility than previous generation DDS waveform generators. The 33600A Series provides 4 upgradable models in 80 and 120 MHz, 1- or 2-channels, Trueform arbs with sequencing and 64 MSa memory, 1 ps jitter (1/100th the jitter of DDS generators) and 5x lower harmonic distortion than DDS generators. The 33600A Series offers a full set of standard features and an optional baseband I-Q signal player that are designed to accelerate your development process from start to finish.

    Unmatched capabilities for generating a full range of signals
    The 33600A Series waveform generators offer the common signals and features you expect, such as modulation, sweep and burst. However, it also offers features that give you the capabilities and flexibility you need to get your job done quickly — no matter how complex, like LAN, USB and optional GPIB interfaces. The 33600A Series waveform generators offer a variety of capabilities designed to help you accelerate your testing and get your project wrapped up faster:

    • Waveform summing and combining capability
    • Variable-bandwidth noise
    • Waveform sequencing
    • Pseudo-random binary sequence (PRBS) pattern generation
    • Smart phone and tablet access
    • Flexibility in creating and playing waveforms
    • Built-in Web browser
    • Standard deep memory

    Unique features of the 33600A Series waveform generators

    100 MHz PULSE High-bandwidth pulse, 100 MHz, DDS pulse limited to 50 MHz Set leading and trailing edge times independently
    PRBS PATTERNS Provides standard PRBS patterns, PN3 through PN32 Select PN type, set bit rate, set edge times
    2-CHANNEL COUPLING Dual-channel coupling, frequency and amplitude, and tracking Set start phase for each channel, phase shift between channels
    COMBINING SIGNALS Sum two signals together, frequency and amplitude independent 2-tone (4-tone on 2-ch), square-sine, noise on pulse, and others
    TRUEFORM ARBS Create up to 4 million samples standard, 64 million optional Connect arb segments together, with up to 512 segments
    LOW VOLTAGE SETTINGS Lower voltage range at 1 mVpp, DDS is only 10 mVpp Set high and low voltage limits to prevent overload on DUT
    BAND-LIMITED NOISE Adjust bandwidth to concentrate the energy of the noise Noise source goes to full 120 MHz bandwidth

    Overcomes DDS limitations
    Keysight's Trueform technology offers an alternative that blends the best of DDS and point-per-clock architectures, giving you the benefits of both without the limitations of either. Trueform technology uses an exclusive digital sampling technique that delivers unmatched performance at the same low price you are accustomed to with DDS.

    4 Models to Choose From
    Choose the model with the capability you need now, knowing you can upgrade bandwidth and/or memory later. All models come with a rich set of built-in, standard features, including LAN, USB and optional GPIB interfaces, 4 MSample of memory, an external timebase input, and basic waveform generation software. You get everything you need to generate clean, precise, low-noise signals for testing your designs.
