The Agilent 33500B waveform generators with Trueform signal generation technology, offer a new alternative that blends the best of Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS) and point-by-point architecture, giving you the benefits of both. Trueform technology uses an exclusive digital sampling technique that delivers unmatched performance at the same low price you are accustomed to with DDS.

The models in the 33500B series provide the lowest jitter and lowest total harmonic distortion in their class, giving engineers the ability to generate the exact signals they need. With better jitter performance, engineers can place edges more accurately, helping them reduce timing errors in their circuit designs. With total harmonic distortion less than 0.04 percent and non-harmonic spurs less than 75 dBc, the 33500B Series offers clean signals that do not introduce noise, enabling users to get more accurate results.

The 33500B Series 8.4-ns rise and fall times and low jitter allow engineers to set trigger points more accurately as well. The 16 bits of resolution allows engineers to make output changes down to 1 µV - giving them the ability to test the low-voltage circuits and designs of today.

With the 33500B Series, engineers can take advantage of easy software upgrades to expand the instrument capabilities when they need to increase bandwidth and add true point-by-point arbitrary waveforms and deeper waveform memory.

  • Unmatched capabilities for generating a full range of signals for your most demanding measurements
  • Sine waves with 5x lower harmonic distortion for more pure signals
  • Pulses up to 30 MHz with 10x less jitter for more precise timing
  • Point-by-point arbitrary waveform capability with sequencing for more accurate representation of user-defined signals
  • 250 MSa/s sampling rate for higher time resolution arbitrary waveforms
  • 16-bit resolution with 1 mVpp to 10 Vpp amplitude for greater amplitude accuracy
  • 1 MSa/channel standard waveform memory, optional 16 MSa/channel for your longest waveforms
  • USB, LAN (LXI-C), GPIB standard for quick and easy connectivity to PC or network
  • Unique features of the 33500B Series
    • Waveform summing and combining capability: Allows engineers to easily add noise to signals for margin and distortion testing using only a single channel. On a two-channel model, engineers can sum and combine up to four signals
    • Variable-bandwidth noise: Allows engineers to adjust the bandwidth of the built-in noise generator to control the frequency content of their signals
    • Waveform sequencing: Allows engineers to create multiple configured waveforms with several common segments. Users can also build long, complex waveforms using minimal instrument memory
    • Pseudo-random binary sequence pattern generation: Allows engineers to test digital serial buses by streaming standard PRBS patterns - like PN7 and PN19 - without the need for a separate pulse generator
    • Optional baseband IQ player: Allows wireless communication engineers to economically play IQ signals without the need for an expensive signal generator. The IQ player provides the ability to make adjustments to the signal, including amplitude gain, channel offset and channel skew as needed for a more accurate representation
    • 2-channel models: Dual channel coupling, frequency and amplitude, equal and inverted, set start phase for each channel, set phase shift between channels
