Agilent/Keysight 81180A Arbitrary Waveform Generator 4.2Gsa/S


The Agilent 81180A Arbitrary Waveform Generator offers convenient  features that make your test easier. It is ideal for generating multiple waveform formats, so you can achieve interoperability between  terrestrial and space-based communication devices.  You can conveniently choose from three different amplifiers with a variety of  characteristics. You can switch between the amplifiers using your  software application, the programming interface or the instrument’s  front panel. In addition, the Agilent 81180A offers unprecedented  channel flexibility. For best memory storage, a sequencer helps you  create versatile, unique signals, as well as advanced sequencing  scenarios that define stepping, looping and conditional jumps of  waveforms or waveform sequences.


High bandwidth:

  • 1 GHz modulation bandwidth/channel
  • 2 GHz I/Q modulation bandwidth and1.5 GHz carrier frequency
  • Reliable and repeatable measurements through best dynamic range and low harmonic distortion
  • Two markers for each channel have controlled marker positions, widths and levels
  • Markers do not reduce DAC resolution
  • Vpp into 50 Ω for many test cases and devices
  • 1,2 or 4 channels:
    • Combine 2 channels phase coherent
    • or use them as two independent instruments in a single box
    • Two instruments can be combined to a 4 channel instrument
  • Advanced sequencing for best usage of 64 MSa for real-world signals
  • Dynamic sequence control lets your application control the waveform – in real time
  • 10 Pre-defined waveforms speed up your measurements
  • Up to 64 MSa memory with advanced sequencing
  • Internal flash memory stores settings and waveforms
