AFG-3000 Description

The AFG-3000 Series is arbitrary waveform generator designed for industrial, scientific research and educational applications. The series comes in bandwidths of 80MHz (AFG-3081) and 50MHz (AFG-3051) with built-in multiple standard waveforms to meet users' diversified needs.
The AFG-3000 Series also provides a high 16 bit resolution, 200MSa/s sample rate and a 1M memory depth for editing arbitrary waveforms directly through the intuitive user interface. The Direct Waveform Reconstruction (DWR) function enables users to directly import waveforms from a GDS-2000 Series oscilloscope to the AFG-3000 via USB host, allowing users to edit waveforms and enhance measurement efficiency.

In addition, the AFG-3000 Series has switchable 50 Ohm and Hi-Z Impedances, built-in On-Screen Help for operation conveniently. Complete parameter settings and waveform can be displayed through 4.3-inch high-resolution TFT LCD. Through USB, RS-232, and GPIB, user can use dedicated PC software or IEEE488.2 commands to edit waveforms.


The 16 bit amplitude resolution can display smooth waveforms, while a lower bit resolution will display jagged or less smooth waveforms.
For example, if 10V is divided into 10,000 equal parts, each part would have a resolution of 1mV. When using a 16 bit resolution, the smallest possible bit resolution is 0.15mV (from 10V). With 16 bit resolution, the 10,000 parts will appear to be a smooth straight line, while the bit resolution of 12 bit would be 2.4mV, greater than the 1mV needed. In this case the straight line would appear like a ladder.
