A MultEWaveform Generator. The A is a Function/Waveform Generator with the precision and versatility to produce numerous waveforms. Its feature. This manual may contain references to HP or Hewlett-Packard. product name/ number was HP XXXX the current name/number is now Agilent XXXX. For. HP As are complex, but more likely to be repairable. The HP A was already the one I was preferring because I like the adjustment.

Then set the height of 1 to Arb waveforms are automatically stored in non-volatile memory for quick recall. View Cart My Account. Waveform parameters are automatically stored in non-volatile memory while they are being created.
Its feature set includes accurate sine, square, and triangle waves, with ramps and pulses available using variable symmetry. Since complete programmability is provided, all of these capabilities are available for ATE systems, as well as bench applications.
In gate and burst modes, the full frequency range applies for sine, square, triangle, pulse, and ramp waveforms. For specialized low frequency applications, the A’s Arbitrary ARB waveform mode lets you create custom waveforms as a series of voltage ramps or vectors. Values are easy to enter from the front panel using the modify knob as a “pencil” and an oscilloscope as a “pad”.
Because all front panel controls are programmable, the A’s precision and versatility can be utilized in automatic test systems.
The A provides sine, square and triangle waveforms from 0. Multi-frequency measurements can be made with the A’s sweep capabilities.
Bursts of 1 to cycles are possible for use 3134a applications ranging from sonar testing to digital circuits. With complete control of each vector, the modify knob is used as a “pencil” to draw the waveform on an oscilloscope.
Later, if a slightly different waveform is needed, just use the marker to select an individual vector, and modify its height and length without affecting the height and length of the other vectors. In production test environments, the A’s 331a4 commands can be used when an operator and computer are sharing control of the instrumentation.

After unit vectors have been inserted, use modify to set the marker, VMKR, to 1. Parameters can be read from the A into the computer where its computational capabilities can be utilized.
In gate, the A output consists of complete cycles, pulses or Arbs which start when the trigger is true, and stop after the trigger goes false. Like burst mode, gate mode can be triggered internally or externally. Linear, logarithmic, and manual sweep make measurements of filters, amplifiers, and other networks convenient and accurate. Amplitude and frequency can now be set without affecting the vector 331a. A post-attenuator summing technique is used providing large ac signals with small offsets and vice versa.
331a drive, marker, and trigger output signals are also provided.
Providing the finest test equipment solutions since 1992
This signal is provided as an output for synchronizing the A to other devices. The Fin X Fin modes provide powerful phase locking capability. For remote programming, use a desktop or mainframe computer to calculate the values, then program them using the HP-IB. Continuous waveforms are provided with 3341a accuracy and low distortion, with frequency accuracy on the upper ranges of 0. A square wave 3314 source is included for generation of complex waveforms with a single A.
For increased versatility, the Arbitrary waveform mode allows a countless number of user defined waveforms. System efficiency can be improved with standard features such as Service Request SRQ interrupt capability and buffered transfer mode. The A’s N Cycle burst mode generates an integer number of complete cycles at each trigger. Since the A phase locks to the plus or minus edge of the trigger signal, it can lock to a variety of signals such as sines, squares, pulses, ramps, and others – with complete control of output function, symmetry, N, phase, amplitude and offset.
