BK PRECISION 4086 80 MHz Programmable DDS Function Generator

The B&K Precision 4086 is a 80 MHz DDS (direct digital synthesis) function generator that creates stable, accurate output signals for all 27 built-in standard and complex (arbitrary) waveforms. The generators produce high purity, low distortion sine waves, square waves up to 40 MHz and provide a stable output of very small signals down to the 1mV - 10mV range. The instrument also provides a built-in 100 MHz universal counter with frequency measurement and totalize function. It provides extensive modulation capabilities including AM, FM, FSK, PSK, pulse modulation and linear/logarithmic sweep. Internal and external modulation sources, as well as internal, external and gated trigger sources are supported. Modulation parameters can be set precisely and are adjustable over a wide range. For instance burst count is programmable in 1 burst increments up to 10000 bursts and burst phase is adjustable in 0.1° increments. Adjust parameters via knob or numeric keypad. Enter amplitude values directly in Vpp, mVpp, Vrms, mVrms or dBm and display the correct voltage by entering the actual output configuration used (terminated with 50 Ohm or open circuit). It is fully programmable via the standard RS232 interface, using SCPI commands. Specifications.

Carrier Wave (CW)
Carrier Wave or Continuous Wave is a sinusoidal signal without modulation.

A harmonic of a wave is a component frequency of the signal that is an integer multiple of the fundamental frequency, i.e. if the fundamental frequency is f, the harmonics have frequencies 2f, 3f, 4f, . . . etc.

Noise Floor
Noise floor is the measure of the signal created from the sum of all the noise sources and unwanted signals within a measurement system.

Ripple is the small unwanted residual periodic variation of the direct current (dc) output
