3100M, VXI Single/Dual Channel Arbitrary Waveform Generator - 1

Astronics Test Systems Inc. Racal Instruments™ VXI Single/Dual Channel Arbitrary Waveform Generator The Racal Instruments™ 3100M/R Waveform Synthesizer Series combines 300 MS/s waveform generation performance, versatility, and compact size into a single-slot VXIbus format. The 3100M/R is a greatly improved version of a field-proven instrument ideal for VXI test stimulus generation. It replaces one or two of the popular 3152A Precision PLL Waveform Synthesizers, which are standard on many military and commercial test platforms. Key Features • Phase locks to external analog signals: 500 Hz to 10 MHz, 100 mV to 30 Vrms • Sine and square waves up to 100 MHz at amplitudes up to 16 Vpk-pk into 50 Ω • Built-in functions: Trianglex, Sinex, Sinc, Square, Ramp, Pulse, DC, Exponential & Gaussian Pulse • Linear/log sweep features (arbitrary and DDS) up to 100 MHz • Ten high-performance modulation modes including AM, FM, PM, PWM, 3D, amplitude/frequency hopping • VXI replacement for legacy pulse and function generators Product Information Compatibility Mode The 3100M/R defaults to its highest performance operational mode, but also can be set to operate as though it were a 3151A+ or 3152A for all modes including (and not limited to) PLL, PM, sequenced mode, trigger delay, and multi-module synchronization. The 3100M/R provides a front panel interface that is different from that of the 3152A. For legacy designs, please refer to literature for the 3151B and 3152B models for more information. Modulation Modes The 3100M/R allows the modulation of a carrier waveform ranging up to 100 MHz with ten modulation types including AM, FM, PM, FSK, PSK, ASK, frequency hopping, amplitude hopping, 3D modulation (a combination of AM, FM, and PM), and Pulse Width Modulation (PWM). Modulation sources are all internal except for PM (external or internal with 3D mode) and include sine, square, triangle, ramp, and arbitrary (in some cases). PWM is generated using the included waveform creation software and downloaded to the instrument. 11-Digit Frequency Resolution The 3100M/R DDS frequency synthesizer (CW mode) provides high frequency resolution, high signal-to-noise ratio (70 dB, typical), and the low phase-noise and jitter needed for telecommunications test applications. Phase-Lock Mode The 3100M/R can phase-lock its output to external analog waveforms. In phaselock mode, the output automatically locks its frequency to an external signal up to 10 MHz and voltage up to 30 Vrms. Phase offset is programmable with 0.01º resolution, and the trigger threshold is programmable with 10 mV resolution. Waveform Creation Software The 3100M/R includes waveform creation software for instrument control and waveform creation that lets you interactively program the generator and import, edit, or create waveforms. Creation tools are provided to help you design function generator or arbitrary waveforms, pulse waveforms, frequency modulated waveforms, 3D waveforms (user-defined combinations of amplitude, frequency and phase modulation), serial waveforms and more. Frequency Sweep The 3100M/R sweeps sine (now using Direct Digital Synthesis or DDS), square, or triangle waveforms between any two frequencies up to 100 MHz. Sweep may be performed either up or down and linearly or logarithmically. 949.859.8999; 800.722.2528; atssales@astronics.com; www.astronicstestsystems.com Copyright © 2014 Astronics Test Systems Inc.

Astronics Test Systems Inc. Product Information continued The instrument drivers are capable of loading these waveforms into the instrument while running a test program. Highly Configurable Design The 3100M/R can be configured with one or two 3152-compatible channels. It can also be configured with a single- or dual-channel amplifier which can be used to increase the output voltage of the waveform generator to 40 Vpk-pk. Creating Sequenced Waveforms The Waveform Studio feature allows pre-defined waveforms to be “linked” and looped as one of 10 waveform sequences that may be stored in sequencer...
