Entry-level function generator integrates with wireless lab management
As electronic systems continue to increase in speed and complexity, colleges and universities globally are looking to outfit labs with modern test instrumentation to better prepare students for the real world. With the the AFG1022, Tektronix offers educational institutions a complete set of affordable instruments including oscilloscopes, signal generators, digital multi-meters and power supplies, all tied together with TekSmartLab.
Compared to scope-based signal generators or stand alone AFGs in its price class, the AFG1022 offers better performance and greater flexibility. Key performance specifications include dual-channel, 25MHz bandwidth with 1mVpp to 10Vpp output, 14-bit vertical resolution and 1µHz frequency resolution. It provides a 125 MS/s sample rate along with 64 MB of built-in non-volatile memory and USB memory expansion for user-defined waveforms.
On the functionality side, the instrument offers 50 built-in standard function and arbitrary waveforms with continuous, modulation, sweep and burst modes to cover almost many test requirements found in basic education labs. A built-in 200 MHz counter with 6-digit resolution enables users to perform frequency, period, pulse width, and duty cycle measurements.
The AFG1022 incorporates an intuitive user interface with a 3.95-in TFT color display, shortcut buttons and rotary knob for quick setting adjustments. Its compact form factor saves valuable bench space.
The AFG1022 is available now for orders worldwide with delivery beginning in March 2015. Price is €532/ £438.
