An Integrated Instrument For Accurate And Versatile Testing

The Keysight 81160A pulse function arbitrary noise generator is a high-precision pulse generator enhanced with versatile signal generation, modulation, and distortion capabilities to stress your device to its limit. (For the same integrated functionality in a cost-effective package, with pulse frequency up to 120 MHz and sine frequency up to 240 MHz, consider the Keysight 81150A.)

  • Pulse generator guarantees reproducible tests with precise signals and unbeatable timing stability.
  • Noise generator combines two required extremes: random noise and repeatable noise with very long repetition rates for simple problem identification.
  • Function arbitrary generator provides versatile waveforms and modulation capabilities to adapt the signal to your device requirements.
  • Arbitrary bit-shaped pattern generator (optional) allows ideal and distorted pattern up to 330 Mbit/s.

Engineered For The Best Signal Generation

The 81160A stresses your device limits for a vast spectrum of applications, including digital and mixed-signal device test, radar distance test, and sensor simulation.

  • Accurate signals test your device and not your signal source
  • Versatile waveform and noise generation to meet your stress test challenges today and tomorrow
  • Plug-and-play solution with everything integrated into one instrument to minimize cabling, space, and test time
