Keysight Technologies, Inc. announced the M9188A, a PXI-based, 16-channels, single-slot unipolar dynamic digital/analog converter (DAC). The M9188A is capable of supplying typical waveforms of up to +30 V. This eliminates the need for engineers to design and develop signal conditioning circuits for applications requiring up to +30 V and thus reduces test system application development and setup time.
The M9188A provides a variable current source, such as DC, and pulse waveforms of up to +20 mA. This eliminates the need for an additional current transformer or source measure unit for application tests requiring current source signals. This helps users achieve a lower cost of test resulting in lower capital expenditure requirements.
The M9188A has an output disconnect switch at every channel. This helps prevent potential damage to the device under test (DUT) from external signal power sources and helps user achieve greater uptime.
With 1 MB available memory per channel, the M9188A can behave like a basic arbitrary waveform generator (ARB) by simulating waveforms with a sampling period from 2 µs to 512 µs at up to 500 kSa/s update rate.
