New Rigol 16-bit function generators DG800/900 series

(1/171) > >>

It looks like Rigol released a new series of function generators with 16-bit vertical resolution. The models range from DG811 - 1 channel 10 MHz for $279 to DG992 - 2 channel 100 MHz for $1000.
DG822 -2 channel 25 MHz with 10 MHz square wave and 125 MSa/s for $329 might be the sweet spot.

I've been looking recently at high vertical resolution generators, so I am curious how the new Rigol ones would compare with SDG2042X and Keysight 33522B.

but the look is like a horror movie ...

well, launch date is tomorrow September the 12th :)
DG800 and DG900 are entry level models not to compete with SDG2000X or 33522B.

They all have SiFi II/True Arb/TrueForm that is supposed to improve waveform fidelity and reduce jitter.
It would be interesting to compare their approaches to waveform interpolation and just the cleanliness of a sine wave on a spectrum analyzer. 

DG800 datasheet says 200 ps jitter or 5 ps jitter depending on the filter for arbitrary waveform. SDG2000X datasheet says 150 ps jitter, no additional filter. 33522B says 40 ps to 5 ps, depending on filter.

SDG1032X is 150 MSa, 14 bit and does square to 30 MHz for just a few $ more. SDG1062X goes to 60 MHz square wave.
SDG2042X is 1.2 GSa, 16 bit and does square wave to 25 MHz.
