Agilent 3245A / 001
The HP 3245A universal source (Agilent 3245A) combines precision dc
capabilities with versatile ac performance, including arbitrary waveform generation. This creates versatility
on the bench, where the HP 3245A may be all the source you ever need. The HP 3245A can also fit into your computeraided
test system, providing the capabilities of ac, dc, Arb, and secondchannel options in a single 31⁄2-inch tall
Arbitrary Waveform Generator
The HP 3245A offers arbitrary waveform operation at a full 1-MHz bandwidth.
This is accomplished by a sampling technique in which the values loaded into RAM are sampled at approximately
4.3 MHz and then run through a 1.25-MHz 5-pole low-pass filter. This allows full 1-MHz repetition rate while
maintaining 0.001-Hz resolution at any frequency. The HP 3245A can also store multiple arrays that can be accessed
for arbitrary waveform generation. Array depth is 2048 bytes.

The HP 3245A provides precision dc outputs of both voltage and current. In the high-resolution mode, you get
24-bit resolution with 60-ppm, 90-day accuracy. The low-resolution mode provides 12-bit resolution with 100
μs settling times. This type of precision means you can use the HP 3245A to test A/D converters, Voltage to
Frequency converters, VCOs, transducers, and other equipment needing highly-accurate dc voltage or current.
There are two output ranges in the high-resolution mode: ± 1 volt and ± 10 volts. In the low-resolution mode,
there are seven ranges. In current, there are four ranges of output, from 0.1 mA to 100 mA. Output impedance
is selectable as either zero Ω or 50 Ω.
The HP 3245A can generate ac voltage outputs, including sine, triangle, and square waves, at frequencies of
up to 1 MHz. Variable duty-cycle pulse and ramp outputs can be generated at up to 100 kHz. In the ac mode, the
HP 3245A can make phase-continuous frequency changes “onthe-fly.’’ All ac waveforms are synthesized and have
0.001-Hz resolution and 50-ppm frequency accuracy. Ninety-day amplitude accuracy for sine, ramp, and Arb is
0.35% of output + 0.41% of range.
