The AWG 2041 is the world's fastest and deepest memory Arbitrary Generator with its 1 GS/s sample rate and 1 MB execution memory (4 MB, Option 01). As with the entire 2000 Series family, the graphical user interface allows on-screen viewing of waveform editing and simplifies "what-if" test scenarios by easily allowing the creation of composite signals.

The standard AWG 2041 configuration provides up to 2 V output or 4 V with the complementary output, each with 8-Bits vertical resolution. Option 03 adds a 8-Bit-wide ECL digital data port which can be used in conjunction with the marker outputs for data generation up to 10-Bits wide at up to 1 GHz. The AWG 2041 supports true Real Time Sequencing capability similar to the AWG 2021.

The Real Time waveform sequencer extends the effective record length output to over a billion points! The built-in frequency domain (FFT) editor (Option 09) is a perfect addition for customers performing modulation simulations, filter design or testing physical layer jitter tolerance, or for pulse mask testing.

The AWG 2041 easily simulates signals where fine point definition and long records are required for simulating very complex waveform conditions. Direct waveform transfer capability makes the AWG 2041 the perfect accessory for Tektronix DSOs.
