How many channels are there in an arbitrary waveform generator?

### 答案：

The AWG510, AWG410, AWG610, AWG615, and the AWG710/AWG710B all have a single channel output with a maximum 2 V p-p output. However, that single channel has complimentary outputs consisting of channel 1 and NOT-channel 1 that is 180 degrees out of phase with channel 1. The AWG410, option 05, has a single ended output that has a maximum 5 V p-p output.

The AWG420 has 2 channels with complimentary outputs consisting of channel 1 and 2 and NOT-channel 1 and 2 that are 180 degrees out of phase with channel 1 and 2 with a maximum 2 V p-p output. The AWG520 has 2 channels with single ended outputs that have a maximum 2 V p-p output each. The AWG420, option 05, has 2 channels with single ended outputs that have a maximum 5 V p-p output each.

The AWG430 has 3 channels with complimentary outputs consisting of channel 1, 2 and 3 and NOT-channel 1, 2 and 3 that are 180 degrees out of phase with channel 1, 2 and 3 with a maximum 2 V p-p output. The AWG430, option 05, has 3 channels with single ended outputs that have a maximum 5 V p-p output each.

There are no options on any model to add channels at the time of purchase or at a later point. They only come in one configuration of channels.
