The PA72G14180 is a 14-bit arbitrary waveform generator, capable of generating waveforms at speeds up to 180Msps. An onboard offset voltage source allows generating offset signals while maintaining optimal utilization of the DAC’s digital range. With the 64MWord of memory, there is lots of room for uploading long complex waveforms. Also uploading of many different patterns is possible, allowing switching patterns with minimal bus communication.
