What are you looking for?
Intuitively control instruments, automate tests, and perform in-depth analysis with Keysight PathWave BenchVue software.
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.
PathWave BenchVue Function Generator Software
Intuitively control your function generators and easily load custom arbitrary waveforms from your PC.
- Connect and control your function generators through the cloud.
- Control, display signals, or charts to correlate signal generation with measurements.
- Visualize multiple types of instrument measurements simultaneously.
- Create automated test sequences quickly with minimal instrument knowledge.
- Receive KeysightCare software support subscription and license with each new instrument purchase.
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.
