AWG5000 Provides Complete Digital and Analog Signal Generation Capabilities Depending on whether the interface between baseband and RF is analog or digital, engineers require a signal generator with both high vertical resolution and spurious free dynamic range (SFDR) for analog I/Q (in-phase carrier amplitude/quadrature phase carrier amplitude) and IF, or with parallel digital outputs for digital I/Q. A signal generator with both analog and parallel digital outputs for digital baseband is ideal for creating, replicating and generating either ideal, distorted or %22real-life%22 signals including noise, jitter, glitches and other imperfections to assist with prototype debug and verification of the baseband/RF interface. The AWG5000 Series consists of four models, offering two and four analog channels with two versions of each, with variable sample rates up to 600 MS/s and 1.2 GS/s. All four models feature 14-bit vertical resolution enabling signal generation with a high 80dB SFDR and two digital markers per analog channel. The two channel versions feature an option for a pair of 14-bit parallel digital outputs which enable test of digital IF or digital I/Q systems. Additionally, the four channel models are ideal for test of 4x4 MIMO systems. The combination of speed, resolution and digital output capability is unsurpassed, making the AWG5000 the first signal generator capable of meeting most mixed signal test needs.
