AWG Accurately Simulates Fast-Changing Signals

Tektronix unveils its AWG70000B Series arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) with features that support the testing of complex electronic warfare and wireless communications systems that require the ability to dynamically alter signal sequences during test scenarios.


In complex test scenarios, it becomes necessary to accurately recreate real-world signals and cycle through fast-changing signal tests quickly. To meet these requirements, the AWG70000B doubles available waveform memory to 32 Gsamples. Its Streaming Waveform ID feature provides users with immediate access to a total of 16,383 sequence steps though a direct Ethernet interface.

With this expanded access, users can change scenarios quickly to replicate real-world simulations far more accurately in less time. In electronic warfare simulation, dynamic signal scenarios and deeper waveform memory enable engineers to generate more complex and longer strings of continuous radar pulses to more effectively simulate electronic counter measures.


The AWG70000B Series also includes support for Windows 10 to meet IT security mandates for instrument operation in government agencies and corporate IT departments. Other features include up to 50 Gsamples/s ,10-bit vertical resolution, and a spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) up to -80 dBc.


The AWG70000B Series is available now with prices starting at $83,600. For more details, download the AWG70000B datasheet.
