Increased demand for 16-Bit Generators that satisfy the requirements of more rugged and industrial applications will be the target for RIGOL Technologies’ DG2000 Series of Arbitrary Function Generators. There are three DG2000 models ranging from 50MHz to 100MHz making them ideal for today’s mainstream requirements.

In addition to 16-Bit resolution the DG2000 includes all of the same advanced SiFi II capabilities as the DG900. Features like Dual Tone, Harmonics and Sequencing provide powerful generation capabilities useful for filter, noise, and RF testing.

Simple communications traffic generation is enabled with Pseudo-Random Bit Streams and integrated RS232 Patterns, which makes testing control and communications links easier than ever before.

The design of the instruments features a ruggedised mechanical package and UI making it appropriate for manufacturing and automated industrial applications.

Beyond its rugged mechanical design the DG2000 includes network/LAN capability for instrument automation and control, as well as a hybrid user interface adding popular function buttons and controls to the front panel that work in harmony with the standard touch screen interface.

Rack-mount kits are available for simple mounting into systems and automated environments.

The DG2000, DG900 and DG800 are all powered by RIGOL’s enhanced SiFi II technology. This sampling technology insures high fidelity arb generation with easy setup and adjustment.

This capability has been enhanced by adding additional interpolation, step, and smooth filtering which allow users to modify waveform characteristics in both the time domain and frequency domain in ways that can be challenging in other manufacturer’s point-to-point sampling solutions.

The DG2000 comes in three models DG2052 (50MHz), DG2072 (70MHz), and DG2102 (100MHz). They can be ordered now with lead times of about 4 weeks.
