Model WS8251  250MHz Single-Channel Arbitrary Function Generator - 1

MODEL WS8251 250MHz Single Channel Arbitrary Function Generator • Single-channel Arbitrary / Function Generator • Linear & logarithmic sweeps • 250MHz sine and 150MHz square waves • Continuous, triggered, gate and burst • Triangle, ramp, sin(x)/x, Gaussian, exponential, noise, • High resolution 3.8” LCD, color display • 4Vp-p into 50Ω, 8Vp-p into open circuit • Ethernet, USB and GPIB interfaces • 12 Bit, 625MS/s, 512k points arbitrary waveforms • ArbConnection software for easy waveform creation The Tabor WS8251 is a Single Channel Arbitrary / Function Generator with a 250MHz bandwidth and the functionality of a Function generator, arbitrary generator and Pulse generator all in one easy to use high performance unit. It is a compact stand alone bench top unit that will satisfy all of the industry and education standard testing needs for years to come. Standard Waveforms The WS8251 has 11 built in functions for quick and easy wave generation. Front panel operations allows for easy selection of wave form and editing of all wave parameters. All of the standard waves can reach up to 50MHz with Sine and Square going as high as 250MHz and 150MHz respectively. User Dened Waveforms For more advanced users the WS8251 with its 12-bit vertical resolution offers a standard 512k points memory depth and a 625MS/s sample clock for designing waveforms. With the ability to control and edit the value of each and every point any wave is possible. The memory can be divided into segments for storing all of the user dened waveforms. Modulated Waveforms Agility and modulation capabilities open the door to diverse applications. In addition to the capability of generating any shape and style of waveform with the arbitrary waveform generation power, the products can also do standard modulation schemes such as FM, FSK, sweep and PSK without sacricing the power of the instrument control and output run modes. Remote Control Model WS8251 comes standard with a variety of interfaces: Ethernet, USB and GPIB allowing the user to freely select the interface best suited to his individual requirements. The included ArbConnection software is a powerful editorial tool for designing waveforms and provides the user with full control of instrument functions, modes and features. Accuracy and Stability As standard, the instrument is equipped with an internal frequency reference that has 1ppm accuracy and stability over a period of 1 year. An external frequency reference is provided on the rear panel for applications requiring greater accuracy or stability, supported by the instrument’s 9 digits resolution. Multiple Environments to Write Your Code Model WS8251 comes with a complete set of drivers, allowing you to write your application in various environments such as: Labview, CVI, C++, VB, and MATLAB. You may also link the supplied dll to other Windows based API’s or, use low level SCPI commands (Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments) to program the instrument, regardless if your application is written for Windows, Linux or Macintosh operating systems. Easy to Use Large and user-friendly 3.8” back-lit color LCD display facilitates browsing through menus, updating parameters and displaying detailed and critical information for your waveform output. Combined with numeric keypad, cursor position control and a dial, the front panel controls simplify the often complex operation of an arbitrary function generator. Automated External Self-Calibration Leading-edge technology is implemented to allow calibration from any interface, USB, GPIB or LAN and calibration factors are stored in a ash memory thus eliminating the need to open instrument covers.
