Agilent Technologies has introduced pulse function arbitrary noise generator, which provides advanced signal quality combined with versatile waveforms.
The pulse function arbitrary noise generator is ideal for general purpose bench tests or advanced serial data stress tests.
Design and test engineers are under pressure to get products to market faster with reduced design schedules and higher quality goals. In addition, differentiation in the market means ideal test functionality. A new class of instrument is needed to achieve these objectives.
The Agilent 81150A pulse function arbitrary noise generator provides versatile waveforms for pulse generation as well as noise generation for stress testing.
The Agilent 81150A pulse function arbitrary noise generator is the optimum stimulus for use in conjunction with Agilent Technologies' 5/6/80000 Infiniium real-time oscilloscope or DCA-J sampling oscilloscope for serial data testing.
The Agilent 81150A pulse function arbitrary noise generator’s integration into one instrument minimises cabling, space and test time.
Engineers need to create ideal and worst-case signals to get accurate and accelerated insight into devices and designs such as semiconductor circuits, sensors or modulators.
The accurate signals of the Agilent 81150A pulse function arbitrary noise generator help engineers test their device, not the signal source. When signal fidelity matters, just enough signal quality is not enough.
"Versatile waveforms and the most precise signals are key contributors for developing quality products with a reduced design cycle," said Alois Hauk, vice president and general manager of digital photonic test at Agilent Technologies.
"The pulse function arbitrary noise generator supports the engineer through each development phase and the patented noise generator gives engineers a quantum leap in productivity."
Calibrated and deterministic noise for repeatable stress tests and random noise generation provide all-in-one capability.
Various stress tests can be achieved by simply adjusting the crest factor, an indicator of signal quality using peak-to-peak and root mean square voltages.
Features of the Agilent 81150A pulse function arbitrary noise generator include:
- Accurate signals test the device, not the source, with intrinsic jitter of 8ps rms at any frequency;
- 13 standard functions, modulation capabilities up to 10MHz and more than 80 measurement types;
- Integration into one instrument, which minimises cabling, space and test time; and
- Differential output and high-voltage amplifier for modern devices.
The Agilent 81150A pulse function arbitrary noise generator is available now in one channel and two channel versions.
