LeCroy Introduces Dual-Channel High Resolution Bench-Top Waveform Generators Featuring Large Display and Rich Feature Set

LeCroy Corporation has announced the release of the WaveStation™ series of function/arbitrary waveform generators. The WaveStation is capable of generating signals up to 50 MHz and offers a 3.5" display, intuitive front panel, 2 output channels on all models and PC waveform editing software. The new WaveStation models are available with bandwidths of 10 MHz, 25 MHz and 50 MHz; each with 125 MS/s sampling rate, 14-bit resolution and 16 kpts memory per channel. Not only does the WaveStation provide basic functions such as, sine, square, ramp, pulse and noise, but also has over 40 built in arbitrary waveforms. The large 3.5" color display enables users to easily preview waveform shape along with various parameters, such as frequency, amplitude, offset, and phase. WaveStation provides a variety of modulation schemes such as, AM, PM, FM, ASK, PSK, FSK and PWM that can be controlled using the front panel. With all the necessary I/O connections for synchronization, as well as standard USB and GPIB interfaces for remote control and automation, the WaveStation is a powerful, flexible waveform generator.



Accompanying the WaveStation hardware is a PC software utility which simplifies waveform creation and editing. The WaveStation software runs on an external PC and provides additional waveform creation capabilities. Waveforms can be easily created, shaped and edited with the software using mathematical operators, digital filters or by placing individual sample points. The software also provides a flexible waveform drawing tool allowing the user to create a freeform waveform sketch on the PC and output from WaveStation. In addition, the WaveStation waveform editing software provides unique capability of importing waveforms captured on a LeCroy WaveAce oscilloscope, via USB and recreating them on the WaveStation.

WaveStation provides the strong features today's engineers and technicians need, such as, more channels per unit, large color display, an extensive waveform library, and various connectivity and synchronization capabilities.
