Which signal generator do you need?
- Arbitrary generators are highly flexible function generatrs. They have an editable memory table. By entering arbitrary values, it is possible to create all kind of waveforms. They are ideal for developing, optimising and testing circuits.
- Audio generators generate sinusoidal electrical output signals in the low frequency range. Both the frequency and the amplitude can be adjusted. The generator models differ from each other in their frequency resolution and accuracy.
- RF signal generatorsgenerate frequencies in the high frequency range. These are frequencies from approx. 3 MHz. The RF signal generators are used in particular for generating signals for mobile radio or for testing digital assemblies in production; they are also particularly suitable for simulating noise or generating interference signals.
- Pulse generators emit one or more predefined pulses. Depending on the shape and duration, pulses of different energy can be generated. Most function generators have an integrated pulse generator.
- USB signal generators are a group of signal generators that can be controlled via USB.
- Do you need an analogue or a digital function generator and what is actually the difference?
- Analogue function generators generate a triangular signal, convert this through diodes into a square wave signal and by means of a comparator into an output signal that is as sinusoidal as possible. This process results in the generated signal being subject to distortion. This is referred to as distortion factors. This is a disadvantage compared to digital function generators.
- Digital function generators are the more modern alternative, based on the DDS principle, which stands for "Direct Digital Synthesis". Instead of transforming the oscillation as in the analogue counterpart, the output signal is calculated by a processor. A digital-to-analogue converter converts the calculated functional values into the corresponding voltage at the signal output. Do you need one or more individual units or a combination unit? Which frequency range do you want to cover? Which signal shapes do you need?
