Clean, Low-Distortion, Stable, and Reliable Signals

When testing a device, you need a source that produces a clean, low-distortion, stable, and reliable signal.

Keysight's exclusive Trueform technology gives you the confidence to produce the exact waveforms you need with best-in-class signal fidelity, surpassing the performance of direct digital synthesis (DDS) technology.

With Trueform Series Waveform and Function Generators, you can define any waveform shape and any waveform length using point-by-point arbitrary waveform capability. Anti-aliasing technology ensures your waveforms are exceptionally accurate, and playable at any rate you select. Play signals as defined, at the exact sample rate, without missing short-duration anomalies critical for testing device reliability.

  • Better signal integrity
    Get the waveform you want, regardless of frequency or sample rate.
  • Lower harmonic distortion
    Measure your design characteristics, not those of your waveform generator.
  • Reduced jitter
    Less jitter gives you exceptionally 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
    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 enabled
    Intuitively control your waveform generators, build automated tests, and design custom waveforms from your PC.

Trueform Waveform Technology

Engineers with exacting requirements have to work around DDS technology's compromised performance or spend up to five times more for a high-end, point-per-clock waveform generator.

Keysight’s Trueform technology offers an alternative that blends the best of DDS and point-per-clock architectures, giving you the benefits of both without the limitations of either. Trueform technology uses an exclusive digital sampling technique that delivers superior performance versus competing products using DDS technology.
