Astronics Test Systems Inc. Racal Instruments™ 3152B VXI Precision PLL Waveform Synthesizer The Racal Instruments™ 3152B Waveform Synthesizer combines 250 MS/s waveform generation performance, versatility, and compact size into a single-slot VXIbus format. The 3152B is a greatly improved version of a field-proven instrument ideal for VXI test stimulus generation. It replaces the 3152A which is standard on many military and commercial test platforms. • Phase locks to external analog signals: 500 Hz to 10 MHz, 100 mV to 30 Vrms rms • Sine and square waves up to 50 MHz at amplitudes up to 16 V kk into 50 Q pk-pk • Built-in functions: Triangle(X), Sine(X), Sinc, Square, Ramp, Pulse, DC, Exponential & Gaussian Pulse • Linear/log sweep features arbitrary and DDS) up to 100 MHz • High-performance frequency synthesis: 11-digit resolution and 1 ppm accuracy • VXI replacement for legacy pulse and function generators Product Information Compatibility Mode The 3152B default operational mode is a compatibility mode which makes the 3152B accept and execute programming as though it were a 3152A for all modes including (and not limited to) PLL, PM, sequenced mode, trigger delay, and multi-module synchronization. The 3152B provides a front panel interface which is identical to that of the 3152A. Extended Performance Mode The extended performance mode of the 3152B provides a synergistic combination of a swept function generator, pulse generator, programmable sequencer, and arbitrary waveform synthesizer into one instrument. In addition, the 3152B integrates a phase lock loop, modulation, sweep, hopping (amplitude and frequency) and a high-performance frequency counter into a single-slot VXI module, saving valuable space. Frequency Sweep The 3152B sweeps sine (now using Direct Digital Synthesis or DDS), square or triangle waveforms between any two frequencies up to 100 MHz for sine or square, 16 MHz for triangle. Sweep may be performed either up or down and linearly or logarithmically. 11-Digit Frequency Resolution The 3152B 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 Locking and Phase Modulation The 3152B incorporates external analog Phase Modulation (PM) and Phase Locking to external analog waveforms. The PM feature is useful in real-time phase offset control and telecom applications. The phase-lock feature automatically locks the 3152B's output to external signals at frequencies up to 10 MHz and voltages up to 30 Vrms. Phase offset is programmable with 0.01° resolution, and the trigger threshold is programmable with 10 mV resolution. WaveCAD Compatible The 3152B is compatible with WaveCAD 3.4 (Figure 1) for the 3152 and 3152A, so you can continue to use this program if desired. The 3152 and 3152A VXIplug&play drivers are also compatible with the 3152B. ArbConnection™ Software The 3152B is provided with ArbConnection™ software for control and waveform creation that lets you unlock the enhanced modes of the 3152B.
