Function / Waveform Generator

Revolutionary Waveform Generator

Keysight 33500B and 33600A Series of waveform generators with exclusive Trueform Technology offer more capability, fidelity and flexibility than previous generation DDS waveform generators.

Lower harmonic distortion
Clean, spurious free signals don’t introduce noise or artifacts. See your design’s characteristics, not the waveform generator’s, in your measurements.

Reduced jitter
Provides very low phase noise for the most accurate representation of signals.

Variable bandwidth noise
Adjust the bandwidth of the built-in noise generator to control the frequency content of your signal.

Waveform summing and combining capability
Easily add noise to your signal for margin and distortion testing using only a single channel. You can create dual-tone multifrequency signals without a dual-channel generator. On a two-channel model, you can sum and combine up to four signals.

BenchVue software enabled: Do more with your PC and instrument together, no programming required. Intuitively control your waveform generators, build automated tests and design custom waveforms from your PC.

Limited time offer: Buy any 33600A Series Waveform Generator and get a complimentary handheld DMM.

M8121A 12 Gsa/s Streaming Arbitrary Waveform Generator - Data Sheet
The M8121A uses a different approach: Instead of a built-in memory, it offers a full rate optical streaming interface (ODI) to supply the samples to the DAC at up to 12 GSa/s, which enables infinitely long scenarios to be generated with up to approx. 5 GHz of modulation bandwidth.

Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS) Generators versus Trueform Waveform Generators - Technical Overview
The incumbent technology used in most function generators is known as direct digital synthesis (DDS). Unfortunately, DDS has a number of problems that can cause unexpected and seemingly unexplainable problems in the lab. Trueform technology avoids many of these traps with its lower jitter and true representation of waveforms – no more approximations! Read more to learn about the differences between DDS and Trueform waveform generators and how those differences will affect your testing.
