Agilent 33250A, Keysight 33250A is a High-performance 80 MHz synthesized function generator with built-in arbitrary waveform Generator
The 33250A is a function, arbitrary waveform, and pulse generator in one instrument with very stable frequencies and low distortion. It also provides AM, FM, and FSK modulation capabilities, sweep and burst modes, and a graphic display.
The 33250A is Agilent’s highest performance function generator, featuring 80 MHz bandwidth, arbitrary waveforms & pulse generation. A color graphical display makes quick work of setting up complex signals.
The 33250A function / arbitrary waveform generator will be discontinued on December 1, 2016, and is replaced by next-generation 33600 Series Trueform waveform generators. The last day to place an order for these products is November 30, 2016. Committed to providing world-class customer support, Keysight will continue to support these products for the standard period of 5 years.

Waveform Creation and Editing
- Get advanced signal creation/editing capability without tedious programming with 33503A BenchLink Waveform Builder Pro Software.
The Agilent Technologies 33250A Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generator uses direct digital-synthesis techniques to create a stable, accurate output on all waveforms, down to 1µHz frequency resolution. The benefits are apparent in every signal you produce, from the sine wave frequency accuracy to the fast rise/fall times of square aves, to the ramp linearity. Front-panel operation of the Agilent 33250A is straight forward and user friendly. The knob or numeric keypad can be used to adjust frequency, amplitude and offset. You can even enter voltage values directly in Vpp, Vrms, dBm, or high/low levels. Timing parameters can be entered in hertz (Hz) or seconds.
Custom Waveform Generation
Why settle for a basic function generator when you can get arbitrary wave-forms at no extra cost? With the Agilent 33250A, you can generate arbitrary waveforms with 12-bit vertical resolution, 64K memory depth, and a sample rate of 200 MSa/s. You can also store up to four 64K-deep arbitrary wave-forms in non-volatile memory with user-defined names to help you find the ight waveform when you need it most. The included Agilent IntuiLink soft-ware allows you to easily create, edit, and download complex waveforms using the IntuiLink Arbitrary Waveform Editor. Or you can capture a waveform using IntuiLink oscilloscope or DMM and send it to the 33250A for output. For programmers, ActiveX component scan be used to control the instrument using SCPI commands. IntuiLink pro-vides the tools to easily create, down-load, and manage waveforms for your Agilent 33250A
The Agilent 33250A can generate simple pulses up to 50 MHz. With variable edge time, pulse width and voltage level, the Agilent 33250A is ideally suited to a wide variety of pulse applications.
AM, FM and FSK capabilities make it easy to modulate waveforms with or without a separate source. Linear or logarithmic sweeps can be performed with a programmable frequency marker signal. Programmable burst count and gating allow you to further customize your signal. For system applications, both GPIB and RS-232 interfaces are standard and support full programmability using SCPI commands.
Color Graphical Display
The unique design of the 33250A combines a low-profile instrument with the benefits of a color graphical display. Now you can display multiple wave-form parameters at the same time. The graphical interface also allows you to modify arbitrary waveforms quickly and easily.
Timebase Stability and Clock Reference
The 33250A TCXO timebase gives you a frequency accuracy of 2 ppm for your most demanding applications. The external clock reference input/output lets you synchronize to an external10MHz clock, to another 33250A, or to an Agilent 33120A. Phase adjustments can be made from the front panel or via a computer interface, allowing precise phase calibration and adjustment.
