Overview

Features


  • Generate 2 independent waveforms from DC to 250 MHz
  • Wideband modulation (AM, FM, and PM) from internal or external source
  • Triggered burst and sweep modes
  • Synchronize via 10 MHz input/output
  • Powerful and flexible waveform triggering options
  • iPad, Python, MATLAB and LabVIEW control

Specifications


  • Analog output bandwidth 300 MHz
  • Modulation bandwidth 62.5 MHz
  • SFDR > 50 dBc for frequencies below 20 MHz
  • Total harmonic distortion < 0.1% (1.5 MHz, 5 harmonics)
  • 2 Vpp output into a 50 Ω load
  • < 1 ppm oscillator stability

Generation


Generate two independent waveforms with Moku:WaveformGenerator. Standard waveforms include:

  • Sine waves from 0.001 Hz to 250 MHz (4 µHz resolution)
  • Square, triangle, and sawtooth waves from 0.001 Hz to 100 MHz
  • Pulse (4 ns minimum with 1 ns resolution)
  • DC output (+/- 1 V into 50 Ω)

Moku:Lab outputs have an analog bandwidth of 300 MHz and a range of 2 Vpp into a 50 Ω load. Moku:WaveformGenerator takes full advantage of the hardware's ultra-stable oscillator and the 10 MHz back panel reference input. See the specifications for full details.

Modulation


Waveforms can be modulated in amplitude, phase or frequency with a bandwidth of tens of MHz, much faster than many competing generators that are limited to tens of kHz. The modulation can be driven by:

  • An internal (sinusoidal waveform) source
  • An external source (using the Moku:Lab's analog inputs)
  • The waveform of the other channel

This cross channel modulation (e.g. using channel 2 as the modulating waveform of channel 1) allows precise control of exceptionally complex modulation waveforms. Need to phase modulate your 120 MHz carrier with a 25 MHz ramp waveform that is itself amplitude modulated at 1 Hz? Moku:WaveformGenerator has you covered.

F.A.Q.


  • What are my options for triggered burst mode?

    • Start mode: start generating a signal from a trigger event.
    • N cycle mode: Output a predefined number of oscillations for a given signal.
    • Gated mode: Turn your output on/off depending on your trigger.


  • What is triggered sweep mode?

    Triggered Sweep Mode allows you to automatically sweep the frequency of your signal by setting a start frequency, a stop frequency and sweep duration. The source of trigger events can be selected from the following options:

    • Internal: Trigger from an internally generated signal.
    • Channel: Trigger from the waveform characteristics of the other channel
    • ADC: Trigger from the analog inputs
    • External: Trigger from the TTL compatible EXT input on the back panel.
