Function / Arbitrary Waveform Generators in Systems (10 MHz to 80 MHz)

Using the Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generators for Test Systems

Welcome to the System Instruments pages - our ´one stop´ guide designed for those interested in using an instrument in test system.  We ensure success when using one of the Agilent products to facilitate test system development.  This page will also help you choose which function generator suits your particular test needs.

Here you will find code samples, panel views, drivers, and mounting details specifically for the function generators.
