Agilent Introduces The BenchLink Waveform Builder Pro

May 3, 2011

Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced the BenchLink Waveform Builder Pro, full-featured waveform creation software for its 33200, 33500 and 81100 Series waveform generators. Using the software, R&D engineers characterizing new designs and test system engineers validating production units in the aerospace/defense, semiconductor and wireless communications industries can now more quickly and easily create custom waveforms. They also can gain deeper insight into their signals.

Agilent’s BenchLink Waveform Builder Pro is a Microsoft Windows®-based program that provides an equation editor along with waveform math and drawing tools that engineers can use to create custom signals. It features a standard function library, waveform sequencer, and signal filtering and windowing functions for easy modification and refinement of signals. A key benefit of the BenchLink Waveform Builder Pro is its ability to help engineers gain deeper insights into their waveforms. A signal’s frequency characteristics can be viewed using a fast Fourier transform capability. Complementary cumulative distribution function curves allow users to view a signal’s power characteristics.

“With the introduction of BenchLink Waveform Builder Pro, Agilent now offers full-featured waveform creation software for our general-purpose instruments,'' said Gary Whitman, Vice President of Agilent’s System Products Division. "This solution ensures our customers can easily generate both the common and the complex waveforms they need to optimize their designs.”
