Zurich Instruments just launched a solution for the generation and acquisition of complex signals: the UHF-AWG 1.8 GSa/s Arbitrary Waveform Generator. On each of the 2 channels, signals can be generated and measured from DC up to 600 MHz with 14 bit resolution. AWG pulse sequences can be changed and varied based on feedback from the demodulated signals or photon counter. The UHF-AWG is completely integrated into the LabOne software and can easily be controlled through a web-browser based user-interface whilst the included LabOne APIs allow a straightforward integration into an existing experimental control environment using LabVIEW, MATLAB, Python or C.

Arbitrary waveforms can be generated and played up to a length of 128 MSa. These signals can be used for the modulation of the 8 internal oscillators, guaranteeing perfect phase-coherence and, using the internal trigger functions, precise synchronization of the measured signal. All relevant signal parameters such as frequency, delays and amplitudes can be adjusted using the advanced sweeper and trigger tools.

The two low-noise signal inputs allow the detection of the resulting signals and direct verification of the programmed pulse sequences, and additionally the powerful toolset of the UHF platform is available: the world's fastest digital lock-in amplifier, the UHF-BOX Averager and the UHF-DIG Digitizer.

The UHF-AWG is perfect for applications requiring pulsed excitation in combination with fast measurement: Quantum computing, NMR- and EPR spectroscopy, radar, lidar, photon counting and tests with mixed signal circuits.
