Product Description

Model 8550 is a programmable function generator with extremely high performance. It provides a variety of signal waveforms to be used as test stimuli for a diversity of electronic devices. For improved immunity to RFI and EMI noise, the instrument is housed in an all-round metal case. The Model 8550 offers many features and functions, such as enhanced accuracy, eight different linear and logarithmic sweep modes, automatic phase lock loop, counted burst, and internal trigger generator. Besides its normal-continuous mode, Model 8550 offers a variety of interrupted and controlled modes. Output waveforms may be gated, triggered, or may generate a burst of pre-selected number of cycles. The generator also provides a number of externally controlled modes, including VCO, FM, AM, and PLL. 

  • Four instruments in one: Function Generator, Linear Sweep Generator, Logarithmic Sweep Generator, and Phase Locked Generator (PLL)
  • Auto calibration to typically 1% accuracy on all functions, 0.1% continuous frequency accuracy. Built-in self diagnostics
  • Six popular output wave forms including Sine, Triangle, Symmetrical Square, Positive and Negative Square waves, and DC
  • Control inputs for FM, VCO, and AM modulation
  • High-resolution, high-accuracy digital settings. Parameters are set, either from the front panel or through the GPIB interface
  • Accurate sweep operation is digitally controlled with the provided X ramp (horizontal drive), and Z intensifier (marker) outputs
  • 30 storable, non-volatile, front panel set-ups
  • Standard GPIB interface, complies with IEEE-488.2 specifications
