SIGLENT SDG1050 Review & Features

Professional Performance at a reasonable price. Shipped and Supported from the USA

3 Year limited warranty

The SDG1050 Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generator is a terrific addition to the SIGLENT family of arbitray waveform generators.  The ergonomic friendly design features a 3.5 inch TFT-LCD display; Built-in Chinese/English language selector; Online help function; Support for USB and internal storage to facilitate file management; Special connection terminal for grounding. The SIGLENT SDG1050 utilyzes DDS (Direct Digital Synthesizer) technology and provides many technical advantages over older analog Function/Waveform generators including much improved  frequency agility, improved phase noise and more precision when controlling the output phase across frequency switching transitions. 

Arbitrary Waveform Generation Capabilities:

The SDG1050 generates 14-bit 16kpts arbitrary output waveforms, Arbitrary editing software (EasyWave) provides 9 standard waveforms: Sine, Square, Ramp, Pulse, ExRise, Exponential Fall, Sinc, Noise and DC, which meets all engineers’ basic needs; Develop your  own waveforms using EasyWave drawing software with your computer mouse.  Supports point-to-point line segment drawing and arbitrary point drawing.making it easy to create complex waveforms. Multi-file screen management helps users  edit multiple-waveforms simultaneously. It provides 10 Storage locations in non-volatile RAM. You can edit and store more waveforms on your PC by using EasyWave.

Dual-channel Synchronization:

Duplicating function 

  • Channel coupling: after setting the primary channel and coupling frequency/phase differences, the frequency/phase of the second channel will change in relation to the primary channel, maintaining the frequency /phase difference .
