Uncompromising performance for functions
The Agilent Technologies 33220A Function/Arbitrary
Waveform Generator uses direct digital synthesis
(DDS) techniques to create a stable, accurate
output signal for clean, low distortion sine waves.
It also gives you square waves with fast rise and fall
times up to 20 MHz and linear ramp waves up to
The 33220A can generate variable-edge-time pulses
up to 5 MHz.
With variable period, pulse width, and
amplitude the 33220A is ideally suited to a wide
variety of applications requiring a flexible pulse signal.
Custom waveform generation
Use the 33220A to generate complex custom
With 14-bit resolution, and a sampling
rate of 50 MSa/s, the 33220A gives you the flexibility
to create the waveforms you need. It also lets you
store up to four waveforms in nonvolatile memory.
The Agilent IntuiLink Arbitrary Waveform software
allows you to easily create, edit, and download
complex waveforms using the waveform editor.
Or you can capture a waveform using IntuiLink
for Oscilloscope and send it to the 33220A for
output. To find out more about IntuiLink, visit
Front-panel operation of the 33220A is straight-
forward and user friendly. You can access all major
functions with a single key or two. The knob or
numeric keypad can be used to adjust frequency,
amplitude, offset, and other parameters. You can
even enter voltage values directly in V
or as high and low levels. Timing parameters can be
entered in Hertz (Hz) or seconds.
Internal AM, FM, PM, FSK, and PWM modulation
make it easy to modulate waveforms without the
need for a separate modulation source. Linear and
logarithmic sweeps are also built in, with sweep
rates selectable from 1 ms to 500 s. Burst mode
operation allows for a user-selected number of
cycles per period of time.
GPIB, LAN, and
USB interfaces are all standard, plus you get
full programmability using SCPI commands.
External frequency reference (Option 001)
The 33220A external frequency reference lets you
synchronize to an external 10 MHz clock, to another
33220A, or to an Agilent 33250A. Phase adjustments
can be made from the front panel or via a computer
interface, allowing precise phase calibration and
