Product Functions

  • Wide array of output waveforms
    • Output waveforms including Sine, Square, Pulse, Ramp, Arbitrary Waveforms, Noise, DC and Parameter-variable are generated. All generated waveforms have 16-bit high resolution. High-quality waveforms are indispensable for improvement in the repeatability (or re-productivity) of tests. Arbitrary waveforms can be set on the main unit and the provided arbitrary waveform creation software “Arbitrary Wave Editor” makes waveform editing smoothly (See photo section)
  • Various oscillation modes
    • Sweep and modulation functions
      • It is possible to perform sweeps not only of frequencies, but also of amplitudes, phases, offsets and duties (0% to 100%). In sweeping, it is possible to combine one-way or shuttle, linear or logarithmic slope (Logarithmic mode is supported only for frequency sweeping), and continuous, single-shot or gated single-shot modes. FM, FSK, PM, PSK, AM and DC offset modulations and PWM mode are supported. Internal and external modulations are possible (See photo section)
    • Burst / Trigger / Gate
      • In the burst oscillation mode, oscillation can be started or stopped at any wave count. The WF1967-68 Series support four modes, as to Auto Burst (No trigger is needed), Trigger Burst (Oscillation in sync with the trigger), Gate (Oscillation in sync with the gate signal) and Triggered Gate (Gate oscillation switched on/off by gate upon trigger). The phase where oscillation starts/stops and the level at which oscillation starts/stops can be set (See photo section)
  • As a pulse generator
    • You can use this waveform generator as a signal source for digital circuits or a pulse generator. The duty/time and the rising time/falling time of pulse waves can be individually set. The generator is suited to the operation testing of a wide variety of digital equipment and devices, data transmission equipment and more (See photo section)
  • 2-channel ganged operation (WF1968)
    • The dual-channel WF1968 offers channel modes of two phases, constant frequency difference, constant frequency ratio and differential outputs. Various types of sweeps are possible with the two channels in ganged operation mode. Each channel has a floating output terminal (See photo section)
      • Independent output (Indep): Two channels programmed separately
      • Two-phase (2-phase): Same frequency
      • Constant frequency difference (2-Tone): Difference in frequencies is constant
      • Constant frequency ratio (Ratio): Ratio of frequencies is constant
      • Differential output (Diff): Reverse phase waveform with identical frequency, amplitude and DC offset
  • External additional input
    • This adds external signals to the waveform output signal (See photo section)
  • 4-channel Output (using the Sub-output)
    • Main-outputs of CH1 and CH2 generate amplitude modulated sine waves. Sub-outputs of CH1 and CH2 generate internal modulation waveforms. CH2 sub-output waveform is 90°-shift from reference phase (See photo section)
  • Burst and Modulation, Sweep and Modulation (See photo section)
  • Three-phase AC waveform
    • The functions to be used are 2-channel ganged operation and sub-output. The main output from CH1 and CH2 is ganged, a sine wave is output from the sub-output, and a synchronized three-phase AC signal is generated. The frequency can be continuously changed, even keep 120° phase differences for each output (See photo section)
    • The functions to be used are 2-channel ganged operation and sub-output. The sine wave is amplitude modulated and output from CH1, and the another sine wave modulated by forward 90° phase shift modulation wave, has output from CH2 (See photo section)
  • LED dimmer noise
    • The function to be used is Parameter-variable. Output as an arbitrary waveform by adding the damped oscillation wave of the Parameter-variable Waveform to the sine wave (See photo section)
