Saelig Company, Inc. ( has introduced the AG051 and AG051F - economical, feature-rich, single-channel multi-function generators which combine arbitrary waveform and function generation using advanced Direct Digital Synthesizer (DDS) technology to provide stable, precise, low distortion signals at up to 5MHz. With a 125MSa/s sample rate and 14-bit vertical resolution, the AG051 and AG051F have a 64MB memory for precise generation of five basic waveforms (sine/square/pulse/ramp/noise) and 45 built-in arbitrary waveforms at up to 20Vpp. They can create user-defined, editable waveforms, 5MHz square or pulses waveforms, and up to 1MHz linear ramp waveforms. The AG051F version also provides modulation capabilities (AM/FM/PM/FSK/Log-Lin Sweep/Burst).

With the AG051F’s Frequency Sweep Mode, the generator can step from a start frequency to a stop frequency at a specified sweep rate generated by sine, square or ramp waveforms. An external modulation input is also provided. The burst feature can generate sine, square, ramp, pulse and arbitrary waveforms that last for certain times of waveform cycles (N-cycle Burst), or the output can be controlled by external gating signals. A useful integrated help function shows descriptions of single functions and step-by-step instructions for operational tasks.

The user-friendly panel layout features a 4” 480×320 pixel TFT color LCD display for ease of use. Menu navigation is intuitive and the graphical interface ensures that all functions and parameters are within easy reach.

A USB communication interface is provided on the AG051 and AG051F for SCPI-compatible configuration or arbitrary waveform loading. The provided PC communication software allows remote setting of the instrument’s parameters and output, and allows the PC’s display to synchronously mimic the screen on the waveform generator.

Manufactured by specialist test equipment manufacturer Owon and housed in an attractive 9.25” x 4.3” x 11.6” bench-top enclosure, the 6.6lb AG051 and AG051F offer remarkable value and are available now from Saelig Company Inc. at under $200.
