Don't miss the point, Rigol's new SiFi arbitrary waveform generators

Telonic launches Rigol’s new DG1000Z series of arbitrary waveform generators, the latest development in their family of fast, easy-to-use professional test instruments.

Rigol’s DG1000Z series helps engineers to accomplish a wide range of testing applications by combining many functions in one easy-to-use instrument. Functions include arbitrary waveform generator, function generator, pulse generator, harmonic generator, and analogue/digital modulator. The DG1000Z series also incorporates Rigol’s Direct Digital Synthesizer (DDS) technology, ensuring that signals are delivered with stability, precision, purity and low distortion. These arbitrary waveform generators with innovative SiFi (Signal Fidelity) can generate arbitrary waveforms point-by-point and allow precisely adjustable sample rates and low jitter (200ps).

The arbitrary waveform memory is available with 8 Mpts (standard) and 16 Mpts (optional). Two full functional channels can be used as two independent generators offering ±1 ppm frequency stability and -125 dBc/Hz phase noise. The instruments have a built-in 8 orders harmonics generator and a built-in 7 digits/s full function frequency counter with 200MHz bandwidth.

Users can choose from up to 160 built-in waveforms with 14 bits vertical resolution and can benefit from a convenient arbitrary waveform editing interface. Versatile modulation types include AM, FM, PM, ASK, FSK, PSK and PWM. The instruments offer standard interfaces USB Host & Device and LAN (LXI Core Device 2011) and a 3.5“ TFT colour display. All models are supported by the Ultra Station PC software tool.

There are 2 models in the DG1000Z Series of Arbitrary Waveform Generators a 30 MHz and 60 MHz unit, with pricing starting at £369 on Telonic’s dedicated Rigol website

RF Instruments

The DSA832 and DSA875 expand the DSA800 Spectrum Analyzer Series to 3.2 and 7.5 GHz respectively. With specifications that far exceed the DSA815-TG, these new instruments enable direct measurements of higher performance signals and systems. For design and development implementing Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and other RF standards, the SSB phase noise down as low as -98 dBc/ Hz at a 10 KHz offset empowers engineers to more accurately analyse modulations and noise surrounding their signals of interest. This becomes important for debugging and immunity testing of transceiver systems. The 7.5 GHz instrument enables engineers to investigate the 3rd harmonic of all of their critical 2.4 GHz applications. Additionally, resolution bandwidth settings down to 10 Hz means more precise visualization of low power RF signals.

With the EMI-DSA800 option you can enable the EMI RBW settings and the quasi-peak filter across the entire spectrum of interest for compliance and immunity testing. Whether you are still debugging your RF transceiver set, designing layout and configuration changes to maximize efficiency, or testing your system in noisy environments the DSA800 series spectrum analysers will help you to quickly and easily identify and analyse your areas of concern. Spectrum Analysers start at just £897 on Telonic’s dedicated rigol website
