  • Generation on 2 synchronous channels of a quadrature signal up to 250 MHz
  • The signal generator with a direct sampling frequency (DAC 16bit) of 1.2 Gigasamples / sec
MGKS is designed to reproduce arbitrary waveforms, as well as to reproduce sinusoidal waveforms with amplitude, frequency, phase modulation or without modulation.

MGKS can be used for research, tuning and testing of systems and devices used in radio electronics, automation, computer and measurement technology, instrument making.

MGKS provides

  • 16-bit digital-to-analog conversion of codes synchronously over two channels
  • synchronous output on both channels of the in-phase (I) and quadrature (Q) components of the vector signal
  • work in two operating modes:
    • function generator (GF);
    • arbitrary waveform generator (GSPF)
  • verification of the main technical characteristics in the "Self-control" mode
  • functional test using external cables using the mezzanine itself in the "OK is disabled" mode
Two synchronously working channels for reproducing voltage levels with unbalanced outputs. Each channel reproduces voltage levels in two ranges:
  • -1 to 1 V;
  • -10 to 10 V.
Limit stress levels reproduced at normalized load, not less than the values calculated by the formula

М= ±(Uмах х Rн) / (Rн + 50)

where Umax is the maximum value of the signal amplitude equal to:
  • 1 V for a range from -1 to 1 V; 
  • 10 V for the range from -10 to 0 V;
Rн - load resistance (input impedance of the signal receiver).
The limits of the error in reproducing the voltage of the signal reduced to the upper limit of the range shall not exceed the values:
  • ± 0.1% for the range of -1 to 1 V;
  • ± 0,2 % for a range of -10 to 10 V.

  • for a frequency of 10 MHz no more than -65 dBc;
  • for a frequency of 50 MHz no more than -60 dBc;
