The Arbitrary Waveform Generator (AWG) is a single slot VME 64X board that provides high speed arbitrary waveform generation with an output bandwidth up to 640 MHz. The output waveforms are produced utilizing a high speed 12-bit DAC clocked at 1600 MHz operating in either continuous or pulsed modes of operation. The 1600 MHz clock input is from an external source via the cards front panel input connector. The unit has two primary modes for waveform generation, memory bank for storage of multiple pre-computed waveforms as well as an “on-the-fly” waveform generation.
- Output bandwidth up to 640MHz
- Output waveforms: continuous or pulsed
- Modes for waveform generation: Memory and “on-the-fly”
