Tektronix AWG5208

TEK-AWG5208 Arbitrary Waveform Generator

The AWG5200 Series arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) leads the way in signal
generation by enabling bleeding-edge innovation for engineers and researchers.
The AWG5200 Series of AWGs delivers unparalleled signal fidelity coupled with
class-leading sample rate and memory depth, giving you the industry's best
signal stimulus solution for complex RF baseband signal generation and
precision experimental applications. With up to 5 GS/s sample rate (10 GS/s
with interpolation) and 16-bit vertical resolution, the AWG5200 Series offers
easy generation of complex signals as well as accurate playback of existing
captured signals.

Key performance specifications
Sample rates up to 10 GS/s (with 2x interpolation)
2, 4, and 8 channel configurations
-70 dBc spurious free dynamic range
16 bits vertical resolution
2 GSample waveform memory per channel

If a waveform can be defined or captured, then the AWG5200 can reproduce this
signal. The creation of the waveform can happen in many ways. An extensive and
growing library of waveform generation plugins which are optimized to work
specifically with the Tektronix AWG family, provide specific waveform creation
capabilities, while 3rd party solutions like MATLAB, Excel, or others, have
flexibility to create and import any waveform you desire. Waveforms created in
any of these packages can be imported and played back in the AWG5200,
seamlessly transitioning from the simulation world to the real world.
