The new waveform reference
The HMF series combines two arbitrary waveform generators with a sample rate up to 250MS/s,14 bit resolution, a bandwidth of 25/50MHz and 8ns rise time. Both units have a bright QVGA color - TFT display to display all functions and parameter.
They support sine-, square- and triangle waveforms and arbitrary functionality. The arbitrary function delivers sin(x)/x, Cardiac, white and pink noise. Userdefined signals up to 256kpts with up to 50MHz bandwidth can be generated. The arbitrary wave-forms can be defined internally, with an external PC-software or load from a USB-stick.
The operating mode burst, wobbeling, gating, external triggering and the following kinds of modulation AM, FM, PM, PWM, FSK (int. and ext.) are available for all sig-nalforms. The HMF series have an pulse generator for pulses with a frequency of up to 25MHz (HMF2550), an pulse width range from 10ns to 999s at 5ns resolution.
Both HMF have a USB/RS-232 interface for remote control. Ethernet/USB or GPIB (IEEE-488) are optional. The generators are available from may 2009 at a price point of 1130 EUR respective 1440 EUR. More information are available at http:/www.hameg.com/HMF2550.
