Product Overview

SIGLENT’s SDG5000 is a series of dual-channel Pulse/ Arbitrary Waveform Generators that feature up to 160 MHz bandwidth, a maximum sample rate of 500 MSa/s and 14-bit vertical resolution. They also include proprietary EasyPulse technology for improved pulsed waveforms. In addition, the SDG5000 also has independently isolated outputs that can be floated up to 42 Vpk from chassis ground. These features enable the SDG5000 to provide a variety of high fidelity and low jitter signals, meeting the growing requirements of complex and intensive applications.

Product Characteristics

EasyPulse Technology View more

EasyPulse Technology

Edge and pulse widths adjustable over a wide range.

Low jitter View more

Low jitter

EasyPulse shows no one-reference-period-jitter, compared to DDS. Less than 100ps cycle-cycle RMS jitter

Fast rise times even at low frequencies View more

Fast rise times even at low frequencies

At very low frequencies (< 1Hz) the SDG5000 can still output pulses with rapid rising/falling edge (6 ns)
At low frequencies, pulse width can also be kept to a minimum 12 ns, duty cycle can be as small as 0.0001%

At 0.1Hz pulse, Easypulse edge can be a wide range of adjustment, the minimum edge is 6ns the maximum edge can be adjusted to 6s; but the ordinary DDS pulse edge adjustment is more restricted.
