It does, however, give you an overview of the front- panel menus and many front-panel operations. The remainder of this chapter contains examples of using the front-panel menus. If the actual load impedance is different than the value specified, the displayed amplitude and offset levels will be incorrect. In AM amplitude modulationthe amplitude of the carrier is varied by the amplitude of the modulating waveform.
Press the AM Freq softkey and then set the value to Hz using the numeric keypad or the knob and cursor keys. Press the Shape softkey to select the shape of the modulating waveform. Press the Hop Freq softkey and then set the value to Hz using the numeric keypad or the knob and cursor keys. Press the FSK Rate softkey and then set the value to Hz using the numeric keypad or the knob and cursor keys.
In PWM, the pulse width or duty cycle of the carrier waveform is varied according to the modulating waveform.
Press the PWM Freq softkey and then set the value to 5 Hz using the numeric keypad or the knob and cursor keys. You can sweep up or down in frequency, and with either linear or logarithmic spacing. Press the Stop softkey and agilsnt set the value to 5 kHz using the numeric keypad or the knob and cursor keys. At this point, the function generator outputs a continuous sweep from 50 Hz to 5 kHz if the output is enabled.
You can output the burst at a rate determined by the internal rate generator sgilent the signal level on the rear-panel Trig In connector.
Press the Burst Period softkey and then set the period to 20 ms using the numeric keypad or the knob and cursor keys. A fifth storage location automatically holds the power-down configuration of the instrument. When power is restored, the instrument can automatically return to its state before power-down. The interface will self configure.
To set a password use the knob and cursor keys use to delete all characters to the right of the cursor position. The Web Server Interface will prompt for the password to protect certain windows. Press the IP Setup softkey. Ask your network administrator whether a subnet mask is needed, and for the correct mask.
The Agilent A assumes that all IP addresses and other dot- notation addresses are expressed as decimal byte values, and strips all leading zeros from these byte values. Features and Functions This chapter makes it easy to look up all the details about a particular feature of the function generator. It covers both front panel and remote interface operation.
Chapter 3 Features and Functions Output Configuration Output Configuration This section contains information to help you configure the function generator for outputting waveforms.
You may never have to change some of the parameters discussed here, but they are provided to give you the flexibility you might need. If you change to a function whose maximum frequency is less than that of the current function, the frequency is adjusted to the maximum value for the new function. For example, if you are currently outputting a 20 MHz sine wave and then change to the ramp function, the function generator will automatically adjust the output frequency to kHz the upper limit for ramps.
Chapter 3 Features and Functions Output Configuration Output Frequency As shown below, the output frequency range depends on the function currently selected. The default frequency is 1 kHz for all functions. To set the output frequency, press the Freq softkey for the selected function. Then use the knob or numeric keypad to enter the desired frequency. To set the waveform period instead, press the Freq softkey again to toggle to the Period softkey.
For arbitrary waveforms, the maximum offset and amplitude will be limited if the waveform data points do not span the full range of the output DAC Digital-to-Analog Converter. At power-on, the units for output amplitude are volts peak-to-peak.
Vpp, Vrms, or dBm. The default is Vpp. The Agilent A has a fixed series output impedance of 50 ohms to the front-panel Output connector. Chapter 3 Features and Functions Output Configuration Duty Cycle Square Waves The duty cycle of a square wave represents the amount of time per cycle that the square wave is at a high level assuming that the waveform is not inverted. Symmetry Ramp Waves Applies to ramp waves only. Symmetry represents the amount of time per cycle that the ramp wave is rising assuming that the waveform is not inverted.
Chapter 3 Features and Functions Output Configuration Voltage Autoranging Autoranging is enabled by default and the function generator automatically selects the optimal settings for the output amplifier and attenuators. With autoranging disabled, the function generator uses the current amplifier and attenuator settings. Waveform Polarity In the normal mode defaultthe waveform goes positive during the first part of the cycle.
All of the standard output functions except dc and noise have an associated Sync signal. For certain applications where you may not want to output the Sync signal, you can disable the Sync connector.
Chapter 3 Features and Functions Pulse Waveforms Pulse Waveforms A shown below, a pulse waveform consists of a period, a pulse width, a rising edge, and a falling edge.
The default is 1 ms. Chapter 3 Features manuual Functions Pulse Waveforms Edge Time The edge time sets each edge transition time rising and falling of the pulse. The rise time and fall time cannot be set independently—each is equal to the edge time. In AM, the amplitude of the carrier is varied by the instantaneous voltage of the modulating waveform. The function generator will accept an internal or external mwnual source.
Sine, Square, Ramp, or Arbitrary waveform. The default is Sine. You cannot use pulse, noise, or dc as the carrier waveform.
Press any of the front-panel function keys except. Chapter 3 Features and Functions Amplitude Modulation AM Modulation Depth The modulation depth is expressed as a percentage and represents the extent of the amplitude variation. The default is Internal. In FM, the frequency of the carrier is varied by the instantaneous voltage of the modulating waveform.
The default is 1 kHz for all functions. Chapter 3 Features and Functions Frequency Modulation FM Frequency Deviation The frequency deviation setting represents the peak variation in frequency of the modulated waveform from the carrier frequency.
PM is very similar to FM, but in PM the phase of the modulated waveform is varied by the instantaneous voltage of the modulating waveform. Chapter 3 Features and Functions Phase Modulation PM Phase Deviation The phase deviation setting represents the peak variation in phase of the modulated waveform from the carrier waveform.
The phase deviation can be set from 0 to degrees. The default is degrees. The default is Hz for all functions. The width of the pulse can be expressed either as a pulse width expressed in time units, like the period or a duty cycle expressed as a percentage of the period.
