New Dual-Channel Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generators

B&K Precision recently launched its new 4060 Series line of dual channel function/arbitrary waveform generators. The series includes three models that generate sine waveforms up to 80 MHz (4063), 120 MHz (4064), and 160 MHz (4065).BKprecision4060_series

Featuring an advanced pulse generator and high-performance 512k-point arbitrary waveform generator on one channel, these instruments are ideal for use in applications requiring high signal fidelity with extensive modulation and arbitrary waveform capabilities at a value price point.

Unique to the 4060 Series are its advanced pulse generation capabilities. The instruments can generate pulses with low jitter less than 100 ps and output 12-ns width pulses at frequencies as low as 0.1 Hz–a feature not typically found in DDS generators. Rise and fall times are also adjustable within a large range (e.g. users can output pulses with 6 ns rise times combined with 6 s fall times).

All models provide two independent output channels with a large 4.3” color LCD, rotary control knob, numeric keypad, and intuitive function keys to make waveform adjustments quick and easy. Other standard features include a built-in counter, Sync output, trigger I/O terminal, and external 10-MHz reference clock input and output for synchronization of the instrument to another generator.

The 4060 Series offers linear and logarithmic sweep function and a wide variety of modulation schemes for modulated signal applications: amplitude and frequency modulation (AM/FM), double sideband amplitude modulation (DSB-AM), amplitude and frequency shift keying (ASK/FSK), phase modulation (PM), and pulse width modulation (PWM).

Equipped with a high performance 14-bit, 500 Msps, 512k-point arbitrary waveform generator, the 4060 Series provides users 36 built-in arbitrary waveforms and the ability to create and load up to 32 custom arbitrary waveforms using the included waveform editing software via standard USB interface on the rear. A front panel USB host port is available for users to conveniently save waveforms and setups on a USB flash drive or to connect the optional USB-to-GPIB adapter for GPIB connectivity.

Available immediately, B&K Precision’s 4060 Series products are backed by a standard three-year warranty at the following list prices:

4063 — 80 MHz — $1,350
4064 — 120 MHz — $1,670
4065 — 160 MHz — $1,990
