BK PRECISION 4087 120 MHz Programmable DDS Function Generator

The B&K Precision 4087 is a 120 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.

Clipping is the limiting of a signal so that it never exceeds some threshold.

Line Regulation
Line regulation is the capability to maintain a constant output voltage level on the output channel of a power supply despite changes to the input voltage level.

Peak Envelope Power
Peak envelope power is the maximum value of the envelope power. Envelope power is measured by making the averaging time much less than 1/fm where fm is the maximum frequency component of the modulation waveform. The averaging time is therefore limited on both ends: (1) it must be small compared to the period of the highest modulation frequency, and (2) it must be large enough to be many RF cycles long.

RMS or root mean square is a statistical measure of the magnitude of a varying quantity
