Hop, Freq. Hop, Sweep & Chirp • Powerful pulse composer for analog, digital and mixed signals The WX2181/2B, 2.3GS/s Single / Dual Channel Arbitrary Waveform Generator, offers unrivaled performance, even when compared to instruments designed to generate fewer types of signals or higher sampling rates. Its affordable footprint saves space and cost without compromising bandwidth and signal integrity. Universal Waveform Source Aside from its natural ability to generate arbitrary shapes with waveform granularity of 1 point, the WX2181/2B can also be used as a full-featured standard, modulation or pulse generator to solve various applications. Equipped with 2.3GS/s 14-bit clock and 16M points (32M optional) memory, the WX2181/2B can generate literally any waveform, short or long, at frequencies up to 1GHz with 8 digits of resolution, resulting in the highest precision signal creation and regeneration without compromising signal fidelity or system integrity. • Bit/Ch. LVDS Parallel / Separate Outputs (Option D) 16 • Smart trigger allows: trigger hold-off, detect <=> pulse width, as well as wait-for-waveform-end or abort waveform and restart • Advanced sequencer for step, loop, nest and jumps scenarios • Two differential markers per channel with programmable positions, width and levels • Two instrument synchronization to form a four-channel system • User friendly 4” color LCD display • Remote control through LAN, USB and GPIB • Store/recall capability on disk-on-key or 4GB internal memory • LXI Class C compliant Signal Integrity and Purity One of the most important requirement in today’s testing and measurement applications is high signal quality. With a typical SSB phase noise of <-115dBc at 100MHz, and <-95dBc at 1GHz, at 10 kHz carrier offset and with exceptionally good SFDR of <-70dBc at 1GHz carrier, Tabor’s WX2181/2B unique platform delivers one of the best quality signals available on the market today, answering the ever-growing demand for clear and precise signals. Common or Separate Clocks Need a dual channel unit, a single channel unit… why choose? With the new WX2182B you can have it both ways. The WX2182B has two output channels, which can either operate independently, or synchronized to share the same sample clock source. As two separate channels, one has the advantage of having two separate instruments in one box, with each having the ability to be programmed to output different function shapes, frequency, amplitude levels and/ or to operate in different run modes. Alternatively, the advantage of having two synchronized channels with less than 10ps skew and skew control is very significant in applications that require an accurate and controlled phase between the two channels, which is ideal for many X-Y modes and I&Q output applications. DC or AC Coupled Outputs Have a requirement for different output paths in your lab? Great! The WX2181/2B offers two single or differential ended DC coupled and one single ended AC coupled output amplifiers: 2Vp-p into 50Ω with 700MHz bandwidth, for applications demanding optimized transitions and aberrations; 4Vpp into 50Ω with 350MHz bandwidth, for applications demanding high voltage or -20 to +10dBm path for applications requiring bandwidth and flatness for frequencies as high as 1GHz.

MODELS WX2181/2B 2.3GS/s Single/Dual Channel Arbitrary Waveform Generators Solving almost every complex application, powerful segmentation and sequencing produces a nearly endless variety of complex waveforms. The waveform memory can be divided into multiple waveform segments and sequenced in user-selectable fashion to create complex waveforms that have repeatable segments, jump and nest, saving you precious memory space. The WX2181/2B also allows you to generate up to 1000 sequence scenarios and sequence between them to generate an even higher level of flexibility in waveform creation. Dynamic...
