Wavetek-Datron’s model 395
100-MHz synthesized arbitrary
delivers high-speed performance in both
bench-top and ATE applications. The model 395
capabilities of a synthesized arbitrary waveform Generator
synthesized function Generator
, pulse Generator
generator, sweep Generator
, and trigger Generator
. As a
modulation source, the model 395
provides real-time AM and
SCM, and synthesized AM, SCM and FM.
The Model 395’s 1mHz to 100 MHz clock generates arbitrary
(user-defined) waveforms with 12 bits of vertical resolution
(4096 points: -2048 to +2047) and up to 256K points of
horizontal memory for simulating “real-world” non-standard
signals. At clock rates of 50 MHz or below, model 395
direct digital synthesis (DDS) that provides high- frequency
resolution (up to 10 digits). model 395
is an excellent
signal source for a wide range of applications, including
in-circuit testing of semiconductors, communication testing
requiring complex pulse patterns, and performance
characterization testing of electrical devices.
Create arbitrary waveforms using the Model 395’s front panel
by using point-by-point, copy, or line edit modes. Also, use
the RS-232 Interface
or optional GPIB (IEEE-488.2, SCPI
to upload waveforms. Wavetek-Datron’s
WaveForm DSP Software
tool makes waveform creation,
modification, and uploading easy over the GPIB Interface
The Direct DSO Upload, part of Option 001 IEEE-488
Interface, allows transfer of waveforms captured with a
digital storage Oscilloscope
directly into the model 395
Another capability, Sequence, allows up to four waveforms to
be linked in a sequence with advancement from one waveform
to the next conditional upon waveform repeat (loop) counts
and trigger signals.
In addition to complex arbitrary waveforms, Model 395
provides a number of synthesized standard waveforms
including sine waves to 40 MHz, square waves to 50 MHz, and
triangle waves to 10 MHz.
The built-in pulse Generator
generates pulses with
programmable parameters that include rate, width, delay, and
rise/fall times. Pulse train allows you to create a series
of up to 10 independently programmable pulses each with
their own level, width, delay, rise/fall times.
Noise functions provide analog noise, digital noise,
signal-plus-noise, comb, and comb- plus-noise.
Sweep allows frequency sweeps from 1mHz to 20 MHz in one
continuous band and include seven sweep modes, as well as
linear or logarithmic spacing.
The model 395
allows real-time AM and SCM modulation of both
standard and arbitrary waveforms.
For non-continuous operation, the model 395
triggered and gated modes. Triggered mode includes
programmable burst counts from 1 to 1,048,575 counts.
Trigger sources include an internal trigger rate Generator
manual trigger key, trigger input BNC, and remote trigger
is designed to provide an MTBF in excess of 10,000
hours, thus the model 395
is extremely reliable. The
easy-to-use calibration procedure can be performed entirely
from the front panel in less than fifteen minutes without
removing the instrument cover.
