Get yourself a 1.25 GS/s arbitrary waveform generator card

October 26, 2017 //By Julien Happich
This month Spectrum Instrumentation is giving away a one channel 1.25 GS/s arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) card for either PCIe (M4i.6630-x8) or PXIe (M4x.6630-x4) including a full SDK and a SBench 6 Professional license. It is worth around 6000€ and is covered by Spectrum’s industry-leading, 5 year warranty.

The AWG comes as close as possible to being a universal signal source and can perform the operations of a function generator, RF generator or pulse/pattern generator. The 66xx series brings the latest AWG technology into a PC. Five different high-resolution, high-speed AWG models are available for different platforms like PCIe, PXIe or LXI. The 16-bit resolution, paired with an output rate of up to 1.25 GS/s with a signal bandwidth of 400 MHz, allows the generation of a wide range of arbitrary signals. The ±2V output level together with unique output modes like FIFO streaming or Sequence Replay Mode offers far more than a stand-alone device. The AWGs can either be programmed by using the included SDK (available for nearly all programming languages) or they can be operated by SBench 6 Pro software, which has built-in waveform creation and allows waveforms to be loaded or generated in different formats.

And last month’s winners are…

In our previous reader offer, Gas Sensing Solutions (GSS) was giving away 10 of its EBTZ1041-SK-A1 starter kits , worth 99 Euros each, for eeNews Europe's readers to evaluate the MinIR CO 2 sensor.

Lucky winners include Mr M. Dominguez Puertas from Spain, Mr L. Svilainis from Lithuania, Mrs L. Horan from Germany, Mr D. Peabody from the UK, Mr S. Ragazzini and A. Torrini from Italy, Mr A. Pettersen from Norway, Mr A. Moerel from the Netherlands, Mr D. Gelbgras from Belgium and Mr P. Rodrigues from Portugal should be receiving their packages soon. Let's wish them some interesting findings with their projects.
