Amplifier Extends Function Generators To 50 V Peak-To-Peak

The 33502A external output amplifier provides as much as 50-Vpk-pk amplification of function/arbitrary waveforms. This two-channel, isolated amplifier is designed to work with existing function generators to extend output levels with minimal distortion. It is suited for applications requiring levels greater than 20 Vpk-pk. It also has a programmable pass-through mode for use in high-voltage applications. The 33502A has a fully isolated front end offering 5X voltage amplification. It can be independently configured with input coupling (AC/DC) and input impedance (50 O/1 MO) to match specific circuits. The input path also can be switched from amplified to direct (unamplified) without removing or reconnecting cables. The 33502A has a two-unit, half-rack mechanical form factor, which fits well as a bench-top unit or in a test system. It is configured with LAN (LXI Class-C compliant) and USB interfaces. P&A: $2600 for the base model; available now.
