FY6600 here

Generally very pleased with it. AM and FM modulation very useful. The big downside for me is that the screen is small and the text tiny

Hi!

In the reply #11 here I recommended the GW Instek AFG-2005 function generator as a cheap option. I still own it and now I decided to open it's cover and take a look inside only out of curiosity. To be honest, I was expecting to see a much lower quality PCB. Since I could not find any photos of it's guts on the internet, I think it's a good idea to upload them here, maybe someone sometime in the future will be curious and he will google them.

Instek makes decent equipment. I am not surprised it looks quite alright.

Oh, the "whys" of the datasheets... The information is there not to be an axiomatic truth, but instead each speck of data must be slowly inhaled while carefully performing a deep search inside oneself to find the true metaphysical sense...

I have a FY600 and two FY2300s - very happy with them. One of the 2300s has been used 8 hours a day for two years.
