trueform signal generation technology: high-end performance at budget-friendly prices The technologies used to digitally generate analog waveforms have long been a case study in compromise. The point per clock (PPC) method is precise but complex and expensive, whereas the far less expensive direct digital synthesis (DDS) renders only approximations of the desired waveform. The Trueform signal generation technology available in the Agilent 33500B Series waveform generators uses a virtual variable clock with advanced filtering to deliver the performance of PPC at the price of DDS generators. Consider the advantages over DDS: a twelvefold reduction in jitter, highfidelity signals that eliminate the point-skipping problems of DDS, total harmonic distortion up to five times lower than DDS, and full anti-aliasing with no external filtering required. With these improvements in signal quality and fidelity, the Agilent 33500B Series waveform generators with Trueform are especially useful for the following applications: • Simulating a clock signal • Generating a serial data signal • Precise timing control, such as a trigger source or gate controller • Baseband IQ signal generator (option IQP) Bluetooth and the Bluetooth logos are trademarks owned by Bluetooth SIG, Inc., U.S.A. and licensed to Agilent Technologies, Inc.
