Moku:Lab’s Waveform Generator

Compare all waveform generators

Overview

Moku:Lab’s Waveform Generator enables users to generate two independent waveforms with a sampling rate of 1 GSa/s, a maximum frequency of 250 MHz, and an output voltage range of ± 1 V into 50 Ω. Select between sine, square, ramp, pulsed, or DC waveform shapes. Modulate the phase, frequency, or amplitude, or generate triggered bursts or sweeps from an internal or external source.

Standard modulation

Modulate the amplitude, frequency or phase of the generated waveform at up to 62.5 MHz with an internally generated sinewave. Alternatively, modulate using an external waveform sampled by Moku:Lab’s 200 MHz inputs.

Cross-channel modulation

Moku:Lab’s Waveform Generator features cross-channel modulation, enabling the output on one channel to be modulated using the output of the other channel. Need to modulate the phase of a 10 MHz carrier with a 1 kHz triangle waveform that is itself amplitude modulated at 1 kHz? You can do that with cross-channel modulation.

Available on Moku:Lab hardware

The digital signal processing power of an FPGA coupled with the high-quality analog front-end ensures that with Moku:Lab you never have to sacrifice performance for flexibility.

Moku:Lab features a suite of twelve different instruments
