This webcast explains principles and challenges of AWG signal generation for RADAR and LIDAR applications. High sampling rate and 15 bit resolution with superior linearity, performed by a single instrument on various platforms enable designers to create ideal waveforms for accurate test of RADAR, LIDAR, satellite and frequency agile systems. Agilent AWG's offer channel modulation bandwidths up to 500 MHz with over 65 dBc of spurious free dynamic range. AWG's, in combination with a wideband I/Q up-converter, give modulation bandwidths of 1 GHz at microwave frequencies for authentic signal simulations for IF and RF subsystem test. The Webcast addresses this and more, illustrating how Agilent AWG solutions deliver unprecedented performance for creation of complex wideband waveforms.

Duration: One hour

Who Should Attend: This webcast is intended for the following target groups: RADAR engineers, LIDAR engineers, RF/uW engineers, Electronic Engineering Managers, Government Mil/Aero contractors, Government sponsored research institutions (such as: MIT-LL, Draper labs, JHU-APL, etc.), Air Force Laboratories, NSA for COMINT, SIGINT applications, Semi-conductor test equipment manufacturers
