This category includes a variety of Signal Generators as it is difficult to differentiate between all the different types such as fixed frequency, sweep, pulse, and data, as many products can achieve a mixture of functions.
Frequency also varies from dc, to audio, video, rf and microwave, with or without am or fm modulation, etc.
The Thandar TG101 200kHz Function Generator provides sine, square and triangle waveforms from 0.5Hz to 200kHz. There is a sweep input and 2 outputs: TTL square wave; and main output variable from 0mV to 11V at 600Ώ with a dc offset of ±5.5V.
The Thandar TG105 5Hz - 5MHz Pulse Generator provides pulses of 200ns to 200ms period and 100ns to 100ms width. There is a gate/trigger input and 3 outputs: sync; TTL square wave; and main output variable from 100mV to 12V at 50Ώ with +ve or -ve going pulses and single shot facility.
