The 1 channel, 2.5 GSPS, DAx12000 is a highly versatile PC controlled Arbitrary Waveform Generator. It incorporates many advanced features such as programmable segment sizes, looping, and individual segment triggering. Since the data downloaded to the card can be arbitrary almost any waveform that the user can imagine can be created. Whether it be random noise, a custom shaped pulse, a pure sine wave, a modulated subcarrier, or an encoded radar signature, the DAx12000 will faithfully reproduce it.
The high speed D/A converter (DAC) can be clocked internally or externally (opt.). Because the DAC is only running at half of its maximum clock rate of 5.0 GHz, the signal quality is exceptional. Most products in the AWG market are usually running at their maximum clock rates at reduced quality to meet marketing goals.
The DAx12000 can be triggered by a TTL signal, pulsed PECL, or software command. Looping can be set for continuous or under user program control.
The DAx12000 comes standard with 2M Samples of memory (8MS optional).
