Title

Replicating Real World Signals with an Arbitrary/Function Generator

This application note will guide you through the steps required to replicate real world signals using the Tektronix AFG Series and ArbExpress software.

Arbitrary/Function Generator Offers Versatile and Convenient Solution for AM/FM Radio Test and Alignment

This application note demonstrates how two tools, the signal generator and the oscilloscope, support radio measurements with the bandwidth that radio test and measurement demands and with the comprehensive triggering features sufficient to accurately capture signals in the RF and IF sections of the radio.

Arbitrary/Function Generators Provide Versatile Stimulus in RF Applications

Recently, modern arbitrary/function generators (AFGs) have been finding increasing use in a number of RF test applications, thanks to significant improvements in versatility, flexibility and frequency range, enabled by advances in instrumentation technology. Learn more in this insightful application note.

Testing with Versatile Pulse Generation Solutions

This application note describes several applications in which modern general-purpose arbitrary/function generators (AFGs) can present a flexible, versatile and more affordable alternative solution to dedicated pulse generators.

Capacitance and Inductance Measurements Using an Oscilloscope and a Function Generator

Don't have an LCR meter in your lab? Want to demonstrate the behavior of capacitors and inductors under sinusoidal stimulus? See how a DPO4104 scope and an AFG3000  function generator can help you get your results.

25 Common Things You Can Do With an Arbitrary/Function Generator

An acquisition instrument - usually an oscilloscope or logic analyzer - is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think about making electronic measurements. But these tools can only make a measurement when they are able to acquire a signal of some kind. And there are many instances in which no such signal is available unless it is externally provided.
