Product Family Overview

Astronics / EADS / Racal 3152 / 3152A / 3152B Precision PLL Waveform Generator

  • 1-Slot, C-Size VXI Module
  • Function Generation
  • Arbitrary Waveform Generation
  • 100MHz Sampling Rate at 12-bits


The Model 3152 / 3152A / 3152B are VXIbus, single slot C-size Synthesized Waveform Generators. They are high performance waveform synthesizers that combine two powerful instruments in one small package; a function generator and an arbitrary waveform generator. The instrument provides a variety of standard waveforms to be used as test stimuli for different electronic devices. The Model 3152 / 3152A also capable of generating arbitrary waveforms with sampling rates to 100 MHz at 12 bits of vertical resolution.

Despite its small size, the 3152 Series offer many features and functions such as VXIplug&play compatibility, backplane phase synchronization, front-panel PLL, counted burst, internal triggergenerator, and more. The instrument generates high quality, high accuracy waveforms throughout the specified frequency range, amplitude span, and operating temperature. The Model 3152 and 3152A generates sine waveforms with a spectral purity that can only be matched by much more expensive bench type synthesizers.

The Model 3152 / 3152A / 3152B generates standard waveforms at frequencies ranging from 100 µHz to 50 MHz. Frequency may be set with 7 digit resolution. Accuracy and stability of the output frequency depend on the reference clock. As a default, CLK10 is used as the reference clock. The typical accuracy and stability of CLK10 is 100 ppm. An optional internal TCXO circuit provides 1 ppm accuracy and stability. When the optional TCXO is installed, the output frequency can be programmed with a full seven digits of resolution.

Arbitrary waveforms are generated with clock rates ranging from 100 mHz to 100 MHz. Output amplitude may be programmed within the range of 20 mV to 32 Vp-p into an open circuit, and 10 mV to 16V into 50Ω. Amplitude and offsets are programmed with 4 digit resolution.
