B&K Precision Expands Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generator Offerings
Provides Up to 50 MHz Output on Two Channels and 14-bit AWG at Low Price Point
YORBA LINDA, CA, Aug 1, 2013 --
B&K Precision today announced the launch of its 4050 Series, a line of four
dual channel function/arbitrary waveform generators. These new instruments can
generate waveforms up to 50 MHz for use in education and applications requiring
stable and precise sine, square, triangle, and pulse waveforms, with modulation
and arbitrary waveform capabilities.
All models are dual-channel,
providing a main output voltage that can be varied from 0 to 10 Vpp into 50
ohms and a secondary output that can be varied from 0 to 3 Vpp into 50 ohms.
Their large 3.5” color LCD display, rotary control knob, and numeric keypad
with dedicated waveform keys and output buttons make waveform adjustments quick
Equipped with a 14-bit, 125 MSa/s, 16k point arbitrary waveform
generator, the 4050 Series provides users 48 built-in arbitrary waveforms and
the ability to create and load up to 10 custom 16 kpt waveforms using the
included waveform editing software via standard USB interface on the rear. An
optional USB-to-GPIB adapter is available for GPIB connectivity.
Series offers a wide variety of modulation schemes for modulated signal
applications: amplitude and frequency modulation (AM/FM), double sideband
amplitude modulation (DSB-AM), amplitude and frequency shift keying (ASK/FSK),
phase modulation (PM), and pulse width modulation (PWM).
features include linear and logarithmic sweep function, built-in counter, Sync
output, trigger I/O terminal, and USB host port on the front panel to save and
recall instrument settings and waveforms. Additionally, a standard external 10
MHz reference clock input is provided for synchronization of the instrument to
another generator, a feature not typically found in generators at this price
Available immediately, B&K Precision's 4050
Series products are all backed by a standard 3-year warranty and listed at the
