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

Generate up to two independent waveforms at
a time with the following characteristics

  • Sine waves from 1 mHz to 250 MHz (4 µHz resolution)
  • Square, triangle, and sawtooth waves from 1 mHz to 100 MHz
  • Pulse (4 ns minimum with 1 ns resolution)
  • DC coupled output voltage range of ± 1 V into 50 Ω

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

Screenshot-Cross-Channel-Modulation.jpg

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.

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.
