AWG5000 Arbitrary Waveform Generator

Most Versatile Signal Generator for Today's Complex Signals.

With 14 Bit vertical resolution up to 1.2 GS/s, 4 analog, and 32 digital channel outputs, the AWG5000 Series Arbitrary Waveform Generator is the ideal solution for versatile mixed signal generation. The AWG5000 Series gives you a unique combination of analog and digital output performance allowing you to generate analog and digital IQ, as well as IF signals in a single instrument. With the addition of advance sequencing and dynamic jump capability, extremely complex waveforms can easily be created to more closely simulate real world environments.
