Siglent SDG6000X Series Arbitrary waveform generator review, teardown and experiments

Posted on Wednesday, June 6th, 2018 in Teardowns by DP

SDG6000X-300x149

A closer look at the newly released Siglent SDG6000X Series Arbitrary Waveform Generator from The Signal Path:

The full teardown of the unit reveals the internal architecture of the instrument, DAC / FPGA interconnect as well as the output amplifier structure. Although the limitations of the FPGA prevents the instrument to operate at full 2.5GSa/s in arb-mode, the instrument is capable of providing complex modulation up to the full 500MHz signal bandwidth.

More details on The Signal Path blog.

Check out the video after the break.
