The Agilent 33220A function / arbitrary waveform generator uses direct digital synthesis (DDS) techniques to create stable, low-distortion output signals so you get accurate results. The 33220A provides easy access to standard sine, square, ramp, triangle, and pulse waveforms plus you can create custom waveforms using the 50 MSa/s, 14 bit, 64 K-point arbitrary waveform function. The variable-edge pulse function, along with PWM gives you unmatched flexibility for your design, verification, and test applications. The 33220A also includes USB, LAN and GPIB interfaces standard and comes with free Intuilink software to enable simple generation of custom waveforms with your PC - all at an attractive price.


Uncompromising performance for functions and waveforms

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 200 kHz.

Pulse generation

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 waveforms. 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 www.agilent.com/find/intuilink.

Easy-to-use functionality

Front-panel operation of the 33220A is straightforward 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 Vpp, Vrms, dBm,
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 adjustment.

3-year warranty

With your 33220A, you get operating and service manuals, a quick reference guide, test data, and a full
3-year warranty, all for one low price.
