Multi-channel signal outputs to satisfy your diversified signal requirements

GW Instek launches the brand new MFG-2000 series multi-channel function generator, including MFG-21XX entry-level models and MFG-22XX advanced models. The output channels of MFG-21XX models include one single-channel 10M/20M/30M/60MHz ARB generator ; one 25MHz pulse generator  ; one 160MHz or 320MHz RF signal generator (MFG-2160MF/MFG-2160MR) and one power amplifier (MFG-2120MA only);MFG-22XX models include one 30MHz/60MHz dual performance ARB generator; one 25MHzpulse generator; one 160MHz or 320MHz RF signal generator (MFG-2260MFA/MFG-2260MRA) ; and one power amplifier (MFG-2260MFA/MFG-2260MRA only).

MFG-2000 series, which has up to 5 simultaneous output channels (MFG-2260MFA/MFG-2260MRA), including CH1 and CH2 equivalent performance dual channel arbitrary function generator with the maximum 60MHz for both channels; RF signal generator, a standard AFG, which produces the maximum 320MHz sine wave and various modulation RF signals; pulse generator, whose frequency reaches 25MHz; power amplifier, which is ideal for audio range. The above-mentioned five different functionality channels are separately or totally allocated on 10 models, which extend from the basic single-channel AFG with pulse generator models to five-channel models so as to satisfy various educational and industrial applications.

The AFG channel of the MFG-2000 series outputs sine, square, and triangle, etc. The series features true point-by-point output arbitrary waveform characteristics of 200 MHz sample rate, 100MHz waveform repetition rate, 14-bit resolution, and 16k point memory depth. Some models provide various modulation methods such as AM/FM/PM/FSK/PWM, Sweep, Burst, Trigger, 150MHz Frequency Counter. Synchronized dual channel models provide correlated functions, including synchronization, delay, sum, and coupling. RF signal generator, a complete AFG signal source (including ARB), features various modulations, Sweep, and digital modulations such as ASK and PSK and its sine wave frequency is up to 320MHz. A full-function pulse generator with 25 MHz is equipped to all models and its pulse width, rise edge time, fall edge time are adjustable that can be applied as trigger signals. Independent input/output power amplifier with 20W, 10dB, DC-100KHz bandwidth, and distortion less than 0.1% can be applied to the audio application.

01. Isolated Channel Design

The overall design of the MFG-2000 series is earth ground isolation among output/input terminals and instrument chassis that can only be found in high-level signal sources. The output channels can sustain maximum isolation voltage up to ±42Vpk (DC+ AC peak value) to earth ground that is ideal for floating circuit tests. Multi-unit outputs can be executed without factoring in grounding reference issue. There is no additional isolation requirement for experiments such as “full-wave rectification” and “voltage doubler” which are easy and safe. An external power supply can bring up the DC bias voltage to ±42Vpk to meet the requirements of higher DC bias voltage such as automotive and educational applications.

02. Arbitrary Waveform Editing Software

The AFG of the MFG-2000 series collocating with AWES (Arbitrary Waveform Editing Software) allows users to easily and quickly edit arbitrary waveforms. DWR (Direct Waveform Reconstruction) allows users to collocate with GDS series digital oscilloscopes to retrieve waveforms and upload them to arbitrary generator to achieve direct waveform reconstruction. 66 built-in waveforms allow users to edit arbitrary waveforms and to output the whole segment or divided segments.

03. Satisfied various application

With the multi-functionality channels, the MFG-2000 series provides different industrial sectors with special dual channel waveforms, IQ modulation signals, low-frequency vibration simulation, automotive sensors, AM/FM broadcast signals, PWM motor or fan control signals, pulse synchronized signals, pulse noise, audio circuit or devices such as speaker tests. The series is ideal for various fields, including scientific research, education, research and development, production and quality control.
