We have written the exercises in this chapter to prepare the function generator for use and help you get familiar with some of the front-panel operations. Verify that you have received the following items with your function generator. If anything is missing, contact your nearest Agilent Technologies Sales Office. One power cord. One RS serial cable. This is the correct fuse for all line voltages. See the next page if you need to change the power-line fuse. To replace the mAT fuse, order Agilent part number Page 19 Chapter 1 Quick Start If the function generator does not turn on Remove the line-voltage selector from.
Remove the Remove the power cord the assembly. Fuse: mAT for all line voltages Part Number: Rotate the line-voltage selector until the Replace the fuse-holder assembly in correct voltage appears in the window. Then, rotate the handle to the desired position. Bench-top viewing positions Carrying position The following steps show you how to change the frequency to 1.
Freq 1 Enable the frequency modify mode. Page To Set The Output Amplitude Chapter 1 Quick Start To set the output amplitude To set the output amplitude At power-on, the function generator outputs a sine wave with an amplitude of mV peak-to-peak into a 50 W termination.
The following steps show you how to change the amplitude to 50 mVrms. Ampl 1 Enable the amplitude modify mode.
The following steps show you how to change the offset to —1. Page To Output A Stored Arbitrary Waveform Chapter 1 Quick Start To output a stored arbitrary waveform To output a stored arbitrary waveform There are five built-in arbitrary waveforms stored in non-volatile memory for your use.
You can output these waveforms directly from non-volatile memory. This enables you to recall the entire instrument configuration with just a few key presses from the front panel.
The following steps show you how to store and recall a state. Page 28 Chapter 1 Quick Start To store the instrument state To verify that the state was stored properly, you can turn the power off before recalling the state. Recall 5 Recall the stored instrument state. To recall the stored state, you must use the same memory location used previously to store the state. Remove the carrying handle, and the front and rear rubber bumpers, before rack-mounting the function generator.
Page 30 Chapter 1 Quick Start To rack mount the function generator To rack mount a single instrument, order adapter kit To rack mount two instruments side-by-side, order lock-link kit and flange kit To install one or two instruments in a sliding support shelf, order shelf , and slide kit for a single instrument, also order filler panel If you purchased the Phase-Lock Option for the A, an additional menu is available from the front panel.
We recommend that you spend a few minutes with this tutorial to get comfortable with the structure and operation of the menu. Page 37 Chapter 2 Front-Panel Menu Operation A front-panel menu tutorial Menu Example 1 The following steps show you how to turn on the menu, move up and down between levels, move across the choices on each level, and turn off the menu.
In this example, you will enable the function generator to automatically recall the power-down state when power is turned on. Page 39 Chapter 2 Front-Panel Menu Operation A front-panel menu tutorial Menu Example 2 The following example shows how to use the recall menu feature as a shortcut to set the command back to its original setting.
Shift 1 Use recall menu to return to the command. The following steps show you how to enter a number in the menu. For this example, you will set the number of cycles for the burst modulation mode. You can specify whether you are terminating the output into a 50 load or an open circuit. In amplitude modulation , the amplitude of the carrier is varied by the amplitude of the modulating waveform.
SINE For the modulating waveform, you can select a sine, square, triangle, ramp, noise, or arbitrary waveform. For this example, you will modulate the carrier with a sine waveform. Shift Notice that the annunciator flashes, indicating that the displayed percentage is the depth also called percent modulation. Repeat this step as needed. Notice that the annunciator flashes, indicating that the displayed parameter is for the mode.
Also notice that the hop frequency is displayed with fewer digits than the carrier frequency. Page To Output A Burst Waveform Chapter 2 Front-Panel Menu Operation To output a burst waveform To output a burst waveform You can configure the function generator to output a waveform with a specified number of cycles, called a burst.
You can output the burst at a rate determined by the internal rate generator or the signal level on the rear-panel Ext Trig terminal. Notice that the annunciator flashes, indicating that the displayed Burst parameter is for the burst mode. You can sweep up or down in frequency, and with either linear or logarithmic spacing. Notice that the annunciator flashes, indicating that the displayed parameter is for the sweep mode.
Page To Trigger A Burst Or Sweep Chapter 2 Front-Panel Menu Operation To trigger a burst or sweep To trigger a burst or sweep You can issue triggers from the front-panel for burst modulation and frequency sweeps using single trigger or internal trigger. Enables single trigger and triggers the generator.
The following steps show how to turn off the comma separator. Page Features And Functions Features and Functions You will find that this chapter makes it easy to look up all the details about a particular feature of the function generator. Whether you are operating the function generator from the front panel or over the remote interface, this chapter will be useful.
Page Output Configuration 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 continued change to a function that is not allowed with the selected modulation, the modulation mode is turned off. Page 59 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. For example, if you output a 1 MHz sine wave and then change the function to triangle wave, the function generator will adjust the output to kHz the upper limit for triangle waves. Page 61 Chapter 3 Features and Functions Output Configuration Output Amplitude As shown below, the output amplitude range depends on the function currently selected and the output termination.
The default amplitude is mVpp into 50 ohms for all functions. Output Minimum Maximum Function Termination You can set the offset to a positive or negative number with the restrictions shown below.
If the specified offset voltage is not valid, the function generator will automatically adjust it to the maximum dc voltage allowed with the present amplitude. The function generator calculates the average of the data points and compares the average to zero volts. At power-on, the units for output amplitude are volts peak-to-peak.
The default is Vpp. You can specify whether you are terminating the output into a 50 ohm load or an open circuit. Duty cycle is specified as a percentage and represents the amount of time per cycle that the square wave is high. 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 terminal. This enables you to recall the entire instrument configuration with a single command from the remote interface or with just a few key presses from the front panel.
