The fully programmable HP 8116A features pulse as well as function generator
capabilities in one small unit. A broad 1 mHz to 50 MHz band for all waveforms
and a wide choice of operating and modulating modes assure high flexibility.
These factors, plus good repeatability, make the HP 8116A a sound, long-term
Unique Operating Concept Saves Engineering Time
HP's custom IC's have made it feasible to put the many HP 8116A capabilities
into such a small volume. Handling is simplified by a unique,
microprocessor-controlled, operating concept that ensures a clear overview of
the compact front panel at all times. When the mode and waveform have been
selected, illuminated labels show which parameters must be set. There is no
clutter, and no confusion.
Auto-vernier. In normal mode, the HP 8116A's auto-vernier increments any desired
parameter continuously until a stop signal is applied. This means that
thresholds can be measured automatically, without a controller.
Level or amplitude programming. The HP 8116A's output can be programmed in terms
of high and low levels or in terms of amplitude and offset. Consequently, a
direct, automatic, conversion is always feasible, so that the HP 8116A can be
programmed in the same terms as the device is specified.
Safe Limit. Devices can be protected by the limit feature. This prevents the
output from exceeding a given magnitude.
For such applications as laser diodes or dc motors, square waves can be
programmed for constant duty cycles from 10 percent to 90 percent. For digital
test, or for simulating very low duty-cycle events, pulse width can be
programmed down to 10 ns. Square wave and Pulse modes provide clean 6 ns edges
that are ideal for many technologies. Pulse width modulation and pulse
recovery capability are available in Pulse mode.
Sine and Triangle Functions
A ten percent to 90 percent duty cycle, programmable in one percent steps,
provides ramps and asymmetrical sine waves for testing VCOs, servos, amplifier
linearity, and industrial process-control systems. Haverfunctions, available
in External Trigger, Gate, and Burst modes, extend the applications to such
areas as telephone line and vibration testing.
All waveforms can be amplitude or frequency modulated. VCO operation allows
frequency variation over two decades with an external voltage; consequently,
transducer output can be conditioned for mag tape recording, or frequency-shift
keying or linear sweep can be carried out.
Low-Cost Automation for Bench and Systems
Powerful capability, small size, and wide specified temperature range make the
HP 8116A a good choice for automatic test systems. Also, the low cost means
that it's now realistic to automate those routine bench jobs and leave more
time for design. Comfortable software features such as easy syntax and
flexible format contribute to rapid system design.
There is reliability in the HP 8116A's output because proper operation is always
ensured by the instrument's error detector. This helps you to recover from an
incorrect front panel or programming operation and by indicating the offending
parameter. Also, the built-in test and diagnosis feature verifies correct
function each time the instrument is switched on.
