Wavetek 395 arbitrary waveform generator teardown

Kerry Wong did a teardown of the Waveform 395 12 bit arbitrary waveform generator:

I picked up a Wavetek 395 arbitrary waveform generator on eBay a few weeks ago. Wavetek 395 is a single channel, 12-bit resolution DDS AWG with a maximum clock frequency of 100 MHz. While the operation manual is readily available, I could not find the service manual anywhere. So I was curious to see the construction inside. In this post, I will show you some of the teardown pictures. If you want to see a video of the teardown along with some analysis, you scroll towards the end of this post.

More info at Kerry D. Wong blog.

Check out the video after the break.
