Key performance specifications
The AWG5200 Series arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) leads the way in signal generation by enabling bleeding-edge innovation for engineers and researchers. The AWG5200 Series of AWGs delivers unparalleled signal fidelity coupled with class-leading sample rate and memory depth, giving you the industry’s best signal stimulus solution for complex RF baseband signal generation and precision experimental applications. With up to 5 GS/s sample rate (10 GS/s with interpolation) and 16-bit vertical resolution, the AWG5200 Series offers easy generation of complex signals as well as accurate playback of existing captured signals.
Seamless transition from simulation to generation
If a waveform can be defined or captured, then the AWG5200 can reproduce this signal. The creation of the waveform can happen in many ways. An extensive and growing library of waveform generation plugins which are optimized to work specifically with the Tektronix AWG family, provide specific waveform creation capabilities, while 3rd party solutions like MATLAB, Excel, or others, have the flexibility to create and import any waveform you desire. Waveforms created in any of these packages can be imported and played back in the AWG5200, seamlessly transitioning from the simulation world to the real world.
Advanced remote instrument control and waveform generation
The new SourceXpress platform brings all of your AWG instrument control and waveform generation capabilities to your Microsoft® Windows PC. Load waveforms, create sequences, and enable playback without ever having to touch an AWG. All waveform creation plug-ins run natively on the SourceXpress platform, allowing you to quickly iterate through test signals without having to set foot in the lab.
