Information
                                    THE MODEL 148A

Wavetek Model 148A, 20 MHz AM/FM/PM Generator is a precision
source of sine, triangle, square, ramp and pulse waveforms
plus dc voltage. The waveforms may be controlled in symmetry
as well as amplitude and dc offset. A built-in modulation
generator can modulate frequency, phase and amplitude or
modulation may be by an external source.

The generator may be run in continuous mode or triggered for
a single pulse or gated for a burst of pulses. Triggering
and gating may be by the Model 148 built-in modulation
generator or by an external source. The triggered and gated
waveform start/stop point is selectable from -90° through
+90°, Start/stop control plus dc offset control gives
haverwave capability.

The main output of waveforms may be attenuated and offset. A
TTL sync pulse is available at main generator frequencies,
and the modulation generator waveforms are available at
fixed amplitudes.

Frequency of both the main generator and the modulation
generator can be manually controlled at the front panel or
electrically controlled by external voltages.

An external sync input (Option 001) located on the rear
panel allows the instrument to be synchronized to an
external signal source.
