A very arbitrary piece of kit

The Tektronix AWG400 series of arbitrary waveform generators perform a wide range of modulated inphase and quadrature (I&Q) and mixed signal simulations.

The Tektronix AWG400 series of arbitrary waveform generators perform a wide range of modulated inphase and quadrature (I&Q) and mixed signal simulations (analog & digital) for wireless and wired data communication, in addition to semiconductor device characterisation.

The AWG400 is suitable for design or manufacturing test engineers who need to replicate marginal and erroneous mixed signal conditions.

Tektronix claim that it is the only product in its class offering 200 MS/s, 16-Bit vertical resolution, 1, 2 or 3 channel configurations and optional digital outputs (16, 32 or 48).

The AWG410 is a one-channel AWG for design engineers who need a universal mixed signal source.

The AWG420 is an inphase and quadrature (I&Q) modulation source that contains two independent waveform channels, targeted to the needs of baseband design engineers.

The AWG430 features a third synchronised channel, enabling baseband and semiconductor designers to control additional analog circuitry. The third channel can be used for automatic gain control (AGC) circuits, liquid crystal display (LCD) products or charge-coupled devices (CCD) that require red, green and blue (RGB) simulation.
