signal generator spec

Postby freblewski » Thu Jun 25, 2015 7:47 pm


I am using a pico 4262 and I want to use the signal generator but I do not find the specs.
are the possible waveforms ( square, sine, sawtooth...) just loaded to the memory of the AWG in which case the signal generator has the same specs/limitations as the AWG ( 16 bits, 192KHz, 4kS mem ) or is the signal generated on the fly ( which would eliminate the 4kS limit ).
for my application I would need to generate a rail to rail sawtooth with 64kS (+1 on the DAC at each sample ). is it possible?

Hi freblewski,

You should be able to find the specifications for the PicoScope 4262 via the following web page:


The sine wave is generated on the fly. Square waves are handled differently and all other waveforms are generated using the AWG buffer.

The buffer size is 4 kS so if you require a 64 kS buffer, the only products that we have with that size of AWG buffer would be the PicoScope 6000 Series 'D' models.
