Dual-Channel Hi-Res Waveform Generators from LeCroy
High-resolution waveform generator.
Chestnut Ridge, NY — LeCroy Corporation is introducing the WaveStation series of function/arbitrary waveform generators. The WaveStation is capable of generating signals up to 50MHz and offers a 3.5-in. (89mm) color display, intuitive front panel, two output channels on all models, and PC waveform editing software. The new WaveStation models are available with bandwidths of 10, 25, and 50MHz — each with 125MS/s sampling rate, 14-bit resolution and 16kpts memory per channel.

The WaveStation provides such basic functions as sine, square, ramp, pulse and noise, and it has over 40 built-in arbitrary waveforms. The large display enables users to easily preview waveform shape along with various parameters, including frequency, amplitude, offset, and phase. WaveStation provides AM, PM, FM, ASK, PSK, FSK, PWM and other modulations schemes that can be controlled using the front panel. With all the necessary I/O connections for synchronization, as well as standard USB and GPIB interfaces for remote control and automation, the WaveStation is a powerful, flexible waveform generator.

Accompanying the WaveStation hardware is a PC software utility that simplifies waveform creation and editing. The WaveStation software runs on an external PC and provides additional waveform creation capabilities. Waveforms can be easily created, shaped and edited with the software using mathematical operators, digital filters or by placing individual sample points. The software also provides a flexible waveform drawing tool, allowing the user to create a freeform waveform sketch on the PC and output from WaveStation. In addition, the WaveStation waveform editing software provides unique capability of importing waveforms captured on a LeCroy WaveAce® oscilloscope via USB and recreating them on the WaveStation.
