I am trying to program a 33120A, with MATLAB, function generator to output a sine wave at different amplitudes as a test routine.  I am able to do it in a brute force method: " fprintf(funct_gen1, 'SOURCE:APPLY:SIN 10000, 0.6'); % Set the output to a Sine, 10kHz, 600mVpk-pk " Then I repeat the same line with a different amplitude and so on. Is it… (Show more)

Hi, I want to generate a single pulse with an Arbitrary Waveform when an external trigger signal is received (basically a pulse, that is not square but user defined). Currently I am seeing the AW repeat itself at the given frequency. I played with the Trigger settings, but still was not able to get what I want. Is it possible to do this? How would… (Show more)

 Hello, I am making an arbitrary waveform for each channel using pgu33622. Those individual arbitrary signals for each channel should output simultaneously, or output with pre-set delay, using MATLAB. I could not find this information in the datasheet and guide; those documents only contain how to output each channel not simultaneously and combine… (Show more)

I've been using this Agilent 33522A AWG for 3-4 years in my lab.  It has had the occasional crash from time to time, but now the crashes are so often I can't use the machine.  A dialog box pops up saying "Application garfield.exe has encountered a serious error and must shut down", and the entire machine is locked, no serial communication, no GPIB… (Show more)

Has anyone ever seen the following error message from an Agilent 33522A? "Application Garfield.exe encountered a serious error and must shut down." I have received this error message three times, and it: 1. Locks the GPIB bus (can't talk to it from Matlab, using Matlab instrument control toolbox, NI GPIB-USB bridge, and NI 488.2 software)… (Show more)

I uploaded a CSV file ranging from 0-5V but my oscope is picking up 0-10V, anything specific that can be causing this?

Hi, we use the 33511B function generator to generate pulse trains in burst mode. When changing pulse parameters (specifically pulse width and high-level), we consistently observe glitches in the resulting output waveform that depend on which parameter is changed:   Changing pulse width, glitch is a 3.5ms long positive going rectangle, amplitude… (Show more)

I want to create a waveform for the agilent 33220a waveform generator. It is a 40us arbitrary wave that I have designed in the keysight waveform builder pro via the Benchvue software, however I want it to then wait 1 second at 0 V DC (or just off) before the same wave is pulsed. There are not enough sampling points available to do this in the same… (Show more)

Where can I find waveform generators documentation

I am installing a Keysight 33522B in a test rack and I was unable to obtain an output in the rear of unit that matched the output in the front of unit. Is there a function that would support one of the rear jacks as a channel output?
