Arbitrary waveform generator and signal acquisition all-in-one

March 03, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Zurich Instruments' UHF-AWG 1.8 GSa/s arbitrary waveform generator presents a unique solution for the generation and acquisition of complex signals.

On each of the 2 channels signals can be generated and measured from DC up 600 MHz with 14 bit resolution. AWG pulse sequences can be varied based on feedback from the demodulated signals or photon counter. The UHF-AWG is completely integrated into the LabOne software and can easily be controlled through a web-browser based user-interface whilst the included LabOne APIs allow a straightforward integration into an existing experimental control environment using LabVIEW, MATLAB, Python or C.

Arbitrary waveforms can be generated and played up to a length of 128 MSa. These signals can be used for the modulation of the 8 internal oscillators, guaranteeing perfect phase-coherence and, using the internal trigger functions, precise synchronization of the measured signal.

All relevant signal parameters such as frequency, delays and amplitudes can be adjusted using the advanced sweeper and trigger tools.
