The AFG-3000 Series is arbitrary waveform generator designed for industrial, scientific research and educational applications. The series comes in bandwidths of 80MHz (AFG-3081) and 50MHz (AFG-3051) with built-in multiple standard waveforms to meet users' diversified needs.

The AFG-3000 Series also provides a high 16 bit resolution, 200MSa/s sample rate and a 1M memory depth for editing arbitrary waveforms directly through the intuitive user interface. The Direct Waveform Reconstruction (DWR) function enables users to directly import waveforms from a GDS-2000 Series oscilloscope to the AFG-3000 via USB host, allowing users to edit waveforms and enhance measurement efficiency.

(1). A total of ten waveforms can be stored.(Every waveform can composed of 1M points maximum.)
(2). Add 1/10th of output amplitude and offset specification per ∘C for operation outside of 0∘C to 28∘C range (1-year specification).
(3). Edge time decreased at higher frequency.
(4). Sine and square waveforms above 25 MHz are allowed only with an "Infinite" count.
(5). Harmonic distortion and Spurious noise at low amplitudes is limited by a -70 dBm floor.
