An entry level Arbitrary/Function Generator can support a wide range of use cases and course subjects. The AFG1022 from Tektronix integrates seamlessly with the new TekSmartLab wireless lab instrument management solution. The instrument enables colleges and universities to equip labs with modern test instrumentation to better prepare students for the real world.
“Tektronix strongly believes that a rich hands-on experience dramatically improves education outcomes,” said Michael Ewald, General Manager, Bench Products, Tektronix. “That’s why we are working hard to meet the needs of colleges and universities including superior price-performance on instrumentation, integrated courseware and ease of administration. We are the one-stop-shop for basic education test solutions.”
Key performance specifications include dual-channel, 25MHz bandwidth with 1mVpp to 10Vpp output, 14-bit vertical resolution and 1µHz frequency resolution. It provides a 125 MS/s sample rate along with 64 MB of built-in non-volatile memory and USB memory expansion for user-defined waveforms.
On the functionality side, the instrument offers 50 built-in standard function and arbitrary waveforms with continuous, modulation, sweep and burst modes to cover almost all the test requirements found in basic education labs. A built-in 200 MHz counter with 6-digit resolution offers an easy and precise way of performing frequency, period, pulse width, and duty cycle measurements.
To maximise learning, the AFG1022 incorporates an intuitive user interface with a 3.95-in TFT color display, shortcut buttons and rotary knob for quick setting adjustments. Its compact form factor saves valuable bench space.
