3206 signal generator

Post by dhansen0 » Wed Mar 17, 2010 8:29 pm

Using picoscope6 how do use the signal generator? There is no amplitude control and the signal out of the EXT is distorted and low amplitude. What am I missing?

Hi,
The output of the 3206 signal generator is a fixed amplitude (+/-0.5V) at an impedance of 600 ohms. If fed into a 50 ohm load, the voltage will drop to about +/- 40mV but it should not be distorted.
Regards,
PeterF.
