new function generator - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

I just got my new function generator and Oscilliscope from Rigol North America. I got both for under $1000 each. These additions give me generation and measurment capability to 100MHz. I got the DG4102 100Mhz Function Generator http://www.rigolna.com/products/wavefor ... rs/dg4102/
and their 100MHz Oscilloscope DS1102CA http://www.rigolna.com/products/digital ... /ds1102ca/. Both have remote program capability and were easy to setup and start using.

I found several features on the Function Generator that I really liked. They had full sweep Linear and Log, full ARB waveform capability and white noise output in addition to several standard outputs like sine, square etc. It has 130 predefined waveforms. So it has some decent capability.

I ran both Function generator and Oscope thru their paces and they performed well. The Function Generator did 100Mhz at several volts Peak to peak as well as down to 1microHz. Amazing capability for a box under $1K each. The Oscope was easy and quick to setup and view the output. I also have FFT spectral capability on the Oscope so I could see the harmonic levels as well as the fundamental. These 2 instruments put me well on the way to a full home test lab.
