AKTAKOM Wave Function Generator Fundamentals
Test equipment applications require signal stimuli varying from advanced communication signals to the playback of captured real-world analog signals. Signal source instruments generate the signal stimulus that is applied to a device under test (DUT). Consequently, signal sources comprise an important class of test instruments. AKTAKOM AWG-4105, AWG-4110 and AWG-4150 Series Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generators adopt the direct digital synthesis (DDS) technology, which can provide stable, high-precision, pure and low distortion signals. Its combination of excellent system features, easiness in usage and versatile functions makes this generator a perfect solution for your job now and in the future.
There is a general market consensus on the naming conventions for signal, function and waveform generators. A signal generator provides a high-fidelity sine wave signal ranging from low frequencies to many GHz. Attenuation, modulation, and sweeping are typical features of a signal generator. A function generator is a lower-frequency instrument that provides sine, square, pulse, triangle and ramp waveforms. Function generators in general provide these standard functions from DC to a few MHz, and typically provide large voltage ranges. AKTAKOM arbitrary waveform generator is a highly flexible signal source that generates any arbitrary waveform that has been constructed point-by-point in digital memory. The constructed waveform is converted to an analog signal using a digital-to-analog converter (DAC) operating at clock rates up to a design frecuency. The built-in AM, FM, PM, ASK, and FSK modulation functions generate modulated waveforms at ease, without the help of a separate modulating source. USB I/O is a standard accessory, while LAN and GPIB are optional. Remote instructions meet the SCPI specification requirements.
Standard functions include the sine, square, pulse, triangle, and ramp waveforms that are commonly used in applications such as the testing of baseband, audio, sonar, ultrasound, and video components and circuits. Some tests that can be performed with standard function waveforms include frequency response characterization, device linearity characterization, digital logic generation, and DC-offset signal generation. The frequency response of a device under test (DUT) can be characterized by waveform responses
Arbitrary waveforms involve the point-by-point user-defined waveform synthesis. This provides unlimited flexibility to the user to create custom waveforms.
The modulated waveform can be changed by modifying the parameters such as type, internal/external modulation, depth, frequency, waveform, etc. AWG Series can modulate waveform using AM, FM, PM, ASK and FSK. Sine, square, ramp or arbitrary waveforms can be modulated (pulse, noise and DC can not be modulated).
Pressing Sweep button, sine, square, ramp or arbitrary waveform can be swept (pulse, noise and DC can not be swept). In the sweep mode, AWG Series generate signal with variable frequencies.
Pressing Burst button, burst for sine, square, ramp, pulse or arbitrary waveform can be generated. Output waveforms with set cycle times. Burst can last for certain times of waveform cycle (N-Cycle Burst) or be controlled by external gated signals (Gated Burst). Burst applies to all kinds of waveforms, but noise can only be used in gated burst. Generally it is called burst function within every signal generator.
AWG Series have included a frequency counter. How to use it?
AWG Series have included a frequency counter which could measure frequency from 100mHZ to 200MHZ under CH2/CNT utility regime. For testing purpose you may connect CH1 and CH2 using a BNC cable.
Set any signal at CH1 with any frequency and press the Output button.
Now at CH2 (please press CH1/2 button) press button Utility and then following the column down press the button at the right of Counter. You will see the value of the frequency you programmed at CH1 immediately.
USB AWG-41XX driver supports Windows 7 and OS 64 Bit
How to install under Windows 7 is ccoming soon
USB driver for AKTAKOM Function Arbitrary Waveform Generators AWG-4105, AWG-4110 and AWG-4150 does not support Windows 7 and OS 64 Bit for the moment. We are working on it to provide support for the latest OS.
The Pulse Wave Specification chart is not advertising the parameters you wanted if you read carefully is giving you a minimum and a maximum pulse width and a resolution value
Also in a website the Specification Table shows a parameter that is missed in a manual:
As per Pulse wave specification the Duty Cycle limits some parameters, pulse also. In fact the minimum pulse is related with frequency, period and duty cycle. You may think that pulse width is affected only by frequency but this is not correct. It is also related with the duty cycle (10% to 90%).
For 1HZ frequency pulse wave width is 1s *10%= 100ms. (minimum value 10%) so if you want to make 1ms pulse width, you need adjust the period < 10ms. Now for a 20ns minimum pulse width, you need to adjust the period <200ns, that means the frequency is >5Mhz.
We should apology because the general Duty Cycle is missed in a manual but in a page 25 regarding "To Set Square Signals" there is a table that shows an idea about relation between Frequency and Duty Cycle:
Finally please be aware that for any wave generator with the same band price or over you will find the same limitation because of the relation between frequency, period and duty cycle.
