Keysight N6030A Arbitrary Waveform Generator

The Keysight N6030A arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) is capable of creating high-resolution waveforms for radar, satellite, and frequency agile communication systems. Each channel of the N6030A operates at 1.25 GS/s and features 15 bits of vertical resolution giving designers the most realistic, wideband waveforms available from a commercial AWG.

The N6030A is a 4 slot 3U CompactPCI module that offers dual differential output channels to drive both single-ended and balanced designs. The AWG also supports advanced sequencing and triggering modes to create event-based signal simulations. Multiple N6030A modules can be synchronized for the generation of phase-coherent, multi-emitter scenarios. Waveform development tasks are simplified using the AWG's numerous programmatic interfaces including complete instrument control from the MATLAB® command line. When the N6030A is combined with a wideband I/Q upconverter, modulation bandwidths of 1 GHz can be realized at microwave frequencies for authentic signal simulations for IF and RF subsystem test.
