The HDAWG-ME Memory Extension option increases the available waveform memory of the HDAWG Arbitrary Waveform Generator from 64 MSa per channel to 500 MSa per channel. This improves the instrument's capabilities for handling large libraries of waveforms for high-throughput device testing as well as for generation of wide-band chirp or noise signals.
Extended memory enables the generation of long, high-bandwidth signals that contain few or no repeated segments, a capability that is not accessible through sequencing and smaller blocks of memory. It can also increase throughput when using dynamic sequencing or rapid instrument reconfiguration, as is often the case in device testing. With this options, a large library of stored waveforms allows the AWG to be used for a variety of test situations without lengthy reconfiguration of the waveform memory.
