The DG900 series from Rigol is the bigger brother of the DG800 series and is a series of very extensive and affordable function generators.
The DG952 is the model with a bandwidth of 50 MHz. All models in the DG900 series have a vertical resolution of 16 bits which you normally only find in function generators in a higher price range. The big difference with the DG800
series is a larger waveform length and a
significantly larger sample rate.
This series of function generators have a large number of different output signals and it is possible to combine standard waveforms with specific waveforms. A new "SiFI II" technology is used to generate the waveforms. This technology generates the random waveforms point-wise and ensures that the signal can be restored without distortion. Furthermore, this series has 160 built-in 'arbitrary waveforms' with which many signals from technical applications can be simulated.
The screen of these generators is a 4.3" TFT colour touch screen with which you can easily set all the settings for the desired function (example shown on the third picture). Furthermore, these generators also have a USB port that serves as a Host&Device interface.
