The B+K Model 4070A represents the finest single source for signal generation to date.  Combining the latest DSP and DSS technologies, the 4070A offers a number of operating modes, providing a versatile, cost-effective signal source.  You will find the 4070A is the best value and most capable instrument for any bench. 

Arbitrary Waveform Generator, Sweep Function Generator, Pulse, VCO, AM, FM, Æ Modulation, FSK and Burst Modes are all accessed quickly and easily from the front panel keypad.  Being a true 12 bit arbitrary generator, the 4070A is stable, accurate and drift free.  Unlike competitive models, the 4070A generates everyday data point independently of the repetition rate instead of a simple look-up table.  Custom design waveforms on a PC, or download from a number of sources, spread sheet, oscilloscope or application program - the 4070A will perform like no other signal source.

The B + K Precision 4070A represents a major breakthrough in signal generation and analysis.  This versatile instrument has capabilities that allow the engineer to use it in a broad range of that include communications, radio, telephony, analog/digital circuit design and test.

The 4070A is much more than a signal generator.  Never before has so much versatility, capability and performance been packed into a single low-cost instrument. Its architecture is based on the latest advances in DSP and DDS technology which not only ensures calibrated and drift-free performance, but also gives the engineer signal analysis functions such as DTMF Detection and Power Level Measurement.  The capabilities of the 4070A can continually be enhanced and expanded by downloading software upgrades to internal Flash Memory.

The 4070A delivers clean, fully synthesized, DC to 21.5 MHz modulated or unmodulated waveforms with 0.01 Hz frequency resolution.  User-friendly features include a large, easy-to-read illuminated LCD display which allows the user to see all modulation parameters simultaneously and a full numeric keypad and encoder which provide direct editing  of each parameter.  No confusing submenus!

The Arbitrary Waveform Generator allows you to design custom waveforms on your personal computer and download them to the 4070A which generates them in real-time.  The Arbitrary Waveform Generator system is also used to generate pulse waveforms with an adjustable duty cycle and a suite of pre-stored Function Generator waveforms.  Arbitrary waveforms may either be designed with a graphical Windows® - based design tool or be generated point-by-point in a variety of data formats from your own application software.  A floppy diskette with a data generator program, example waveforms, and a downloader utility are included with this option.
