Higher Frequencies

The TG5011A/5012A significantly out-performs other generators in their price range by offering both sine and square waves up to 50MHz. The lower cost TG2511A/2512A are limited to 25MHz.

Waveform Quality

These instruments generate high purity sine waves with low harmonic distortion and low phase noise. Square waves have a rise time of below 8ns (13ns on 25MHz models) and low overshoot. Variable symmetry can be used up to 25MHz, although the Pulse Function is more appropriate for wide duty cycle waveforms.

Triangle and Ramp

High quality triangle and variable symmetry ramp waveforms are available up to 1MHz (50MHz models) or 500kHz (25MHz models).

These waveforms are also available at higher frequencies via the arbitrary function but without symmetry adjustment and with poorer waveform quality as the frequency increases.

Exceptional frequency precision

The frequency of these waveforms can be set with up to 14 digits or one micro hertz of resolution.

The DDS based frequency generation system uses a TCXO timebase oscillator with a stability of 1ppm.

VLF generation

The high resolution of the DDS system means that very low frequencies can be set. For example, a frequency of around 1mHz could be set with a resolution of 0.1% and a stability of 1ppm
