The Model 685 from Berkeley Nucleonics Corporation is an Arbitrary Waveform Generator that operates from 1 µHz to 2 GHz. It is available with 2, 4, and 8 channels and can generate a series of radar pulses, pulsed RF signals with impairments, Gaussian pulses, multi-level pulses, double pulses for IGBT/MOSFET experiments, pulses for Advanced Research, and Quantum computing. This generator boasts a 1 S/s (Sample/second) to 6.16 GS/s with a 16-bit vertical resolution and delivers outstanding signal integrity with a rise time/fall time of less than 1 ns. It has jitter of less than 10 ps and phase control from 0 to 360 degrees. The generator supports 32 digital channels in synchronous with analog generation and the digital output provides up to a 1.54 Gb/s data rate in LVDS output format.
The Model 685 operates on a Windows-based platform with a 7-inch touch screen, front panel buttons, and a knob. It has two operation modes--Simple Rider AFG (DDS AFG mode) and TrueArb (variable clock Arbitrary AWG mode), which makes the instrument easier to control. The generator supports a standard Ethernet interface for remote control and easily customizable instrument programming.
The Model 685 is ideal for automotive, aerospace and defense, IoT and Industry 4.0, semiconductors test, quantum computer, and research applications. It requires an AC supply of 100-240 V and consumes under 120 W of power.
