Migrating 33210A to EDU33210A & 33500B Waveform Generators For Uncompromising Performance and Enhanced Capabilities

Configuration Guides

For Uncompromising Performance and Enhanced Capabilities

 

Overview

 

The Keysight Technologies, Inc 10-MHz 33210A Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generators is a legacy instrument of the 332xx family. Generating waveforms using direct digital synthesis (DDS) technology with uncompromising performance at an affordable price.

With the retirement of the 33210A, EDU33210A Series continues its offering of uncompromising performance at affordable prices with enhanced capability from the 33210A; while the 33500B Series provides the next generation of Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generators with higher performance and flexibility while maintaining compatibility with the 33210A. 

Introduction

The EDU33210A Series and the 33500B Trueform Series are designed to be compatible with the 33210A, with several exceptions. Many of these differences improve the performance of the 33210A function generators.

The 2 sections below cover the comparison on the Key Features and Specifications as well as the Usability of Functions. The few differences between the 33210A, EDU33210A Series and 33500B Trueform Series generators that might affect migration are listed below.

Key Features and Specifications

 

Trueform Technology

 

The EDU33210A Series and the 33500B Series comes with Trueform technology, which is unique to Keysight generators. Trueform offers greater waveform integrity than the old DDS architecture which is used in 33210A. Signal edges are now faster, having less jitter and are generally better

For more information on these differences see: Trueform Waveform Generation Technology Overview, publication number 5991-0852EN.

Table 2 below specifies the Key Specifications Comparison between the 33210A, EDU33210A Series and 33500B Trueform Series.
