Description 50 MHz VXIbus Arbitrary Waveform Synthesizer
Information
                                    The MODEL 1385 is a high performance Synthesized Arbitrary
Waveform Generator (ARB) with the following main features:
• Isolated Analog Output
• Up to 50 MHz Sampling Frequency
• 12 Bit Vertical Resolution
• 128K points (512K optional) Horizontal Resolution
• Intermodule Triggering, Summing and Phase Control
• Waveform Linking and Looping
• 64K bytes Shared Memory for fast data transfer
• Auxilliary Analog Output
• SCPI Compatible Command Language
• Single Slot, C-Size VXIbus Module
The waveform synthesizer can be programmed to produce
standard waveforms in the frequency range of 1 mHz to 20
MHz; or arbitrary waveforms from 5 points minimum to 128K
(512) maximum sampled at frequencies from 125 mHz to 50 MHz.
Additionally, a Clock Output is provided from 125 mHz to 100
MHz.
Waveforms can be created by selection of the standard
waveforms, drawing waveforms by defining straight line
segments, or downloading of binary images. The A24 Shared
Memory may be used for significantly faster downloads than
by using the word-serial protocol.
Waveforms can also be linked together to form complex
waveforms. Up to 4096 segments can be linked together.
The main waveform output provides up to llVp-p into 500
(22Vp-p into open circuit). Waveform dc offset or dc output
is also provided up to ±5.5 V into 5012, 11V into open
circuit). Output Lo (outer of BNC) may be up to 7V away from
chassis ground.
The control language adheres to the SCPI (Standard Commands
for Programmable Instruments) format Version 1992.0,
February 1992 (refer to the SCPI manual for further
information). SCPI is an industry standard language for
remote instrument programming. The Wavetek Model 1385
waveform synthesizer is a single-slot “C” size VXIbus
module. Using any manufacturer’s VXIbus chassis, the Model
1385 can be controlled using the SCPI language and the
appropriate controller.
Multiple ARBs may be linked and operated together inside one
VXIbus chassis. In parallel operation, model 1395's may be
slaved to a master clock/trigger bus on the VXIbus backplane
to create a multichannel waveform synthesizer with phase
control between channels.
The model 1385 has extensive self-adjustment utilities built
in. Calibration constants are maintained in non-volatile
memory (contains no battery).
