Uncompromising performance for functions and waveforms
The 33220A Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generator uses direct digital synthesis (DDS) techniques to create a stable, accurate
output signal for clean, low distortion sine waves. It also gives you square waves with fast rise and fall times up to 20 MHz
and linear ramp waves up to 200 kHz.
Front-panel operation of the 33220A is straight-forward and user friendly. You can access all major functions with a single
key or two. The knob or numeric keypad can be used to adjust frequency, amplitude, offset, and other parameters. You can even
enter voltage values directly in Vpp, Vrms, dBm, or as high and low levels. Timing parameters can be entered in Hertz (Hz) or
seconds. Internal AM, FM, PM, FSK, and PWM modulation make it easy to modulate waveforms without the need for a separate modulation
source. Linear and logarithmic sweeps are also built in, with sweep rates selectable from 1 ms to 500 s. Burst mode operation
allows for a user-selected number of cycles per period of time. GPIB, LAN, and USB interfaces are all standard, plus you get full
programmability using SCPI commands.
The 33220A can generate variable-edge-time pulses up to 5 MHz. With variable period, pulse width, and amplitude the 33220A
is ideally suited to a wide variety of applications requiring a flexible pulse signal.
Custom waveform generation
Use the 33220A to generate complex custom waveforms. With 14-bit resolution, and a sampling rate of 50 MSa/s, the 33220A
gives you the flexibility to create the waveforms you need. It also lets you store up to four waveforms in nonvolatile memory.
The Agilent IntuiLink Arbitrary Waveform software allows you to easily create, edit, and download complex waveforms using the
waveform editor. Or you can capture a waveform using IntuiLink for Oscilloscope and send it to the 33220A for output. To find out more
