Microwave and digital-signal-processor (DSP) engineers will benefit from a new wideband arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) that combines the dynamic range of 15 b vertical resolution with 1.25 GSamples/s sampling bandwidth. The model N6030A AWG from Agilent Technologies (Palo Alto, CA) is capable of creating complex, wideband signals for the design and test of advanced radar, satellite communications, and emerging communication systems. Housed in a four-slot 3U CompactPCI format, the AWG module achieves a spurious-free dynamic range of better than -65 dBc with 500 MHz of instantaneous analog bandwidth. The digital source offers dual differential output channels to drive both single-ended and balanced designs. The instrument can be supplied with 8 MSamples standard memory for storage of arbitrary or complex waveforms, or 16 MSamples memory as an option.

The N6030A can be used as a stand-alone AWG or as a scalable system component for generating complex phase-coherent, multi-emitter scenarios. A single N6030A module can drive eight total modules to create synchronous operation on a sample-by-sample basis. The module supports in-phase/quadrature (IQ) bandwidths to 1 GHz. The module is supplied with a complete software suite with an intuitive graphical user interface that aids developers in waveform file creation, transfer and control of all module settings. It supports a variety of programming interfaces, including MATLAB(r), LabView, IVI-C, and the Microsoft.NET framework.
