Siglent SDG1000X Waveform Generators
« on: September 05, 2016, 10:22:23 am »
The next in the X series instruments range, a SDG1000X AWG has been released.
The range has 2 models with 30 or 60 MHz frequencies with Sine and Square waveforms to the maximum frequency of each model.

Did I read that right, 16k sample memory?  :palm:

I know that the SDG1000 Series is supposed to be cheap but couldn't they spend the $1.50 or so it probably costs to make that to something a little bit more appropriate for 2016, like say 1M?

Did they drop the touch screen. I had hoped to see the the 2000 series cheaper dropping un-needed touch. Not sure its used for anything special.

Also the images are loading very slow on that siglent website, despite being 30kb?

This model have Fixed Arb memory lenght, Fixed clock. With 1M Arb whole memory to DAC, without jumping, take near 6.7ms. Max Arb repeating freq without jumping is around 150Hz.  Not problem but also not always nice when change freq etc and user can not easy know what detail it is now jumping over..
If it have adjustable lenght then max 1M or 10M or 100M...

Interesting that these appear to be a slightly lesser version of the SDG2000X series in just about everything except for square wave performance. Up to 60 MHz square waves on the SDG1062X.

:)
Yes you might say that but also that they're an updated SDG1000 to X series status:
Bigger and higher resolution display
LAN added.
Same output amplitude on both channels.
Plus the many more inbuilt arb waveforms that were only available on the SDG2000X series.

Better to go for the entry model in the SDS2000X series and "upgrade" it to 120 MHz.

The price difference is not that big after all, and the specs are so much better, so it's definitely worth!

Do the new Siglent X gens support the dBm setting on the amplitude ?

I cannot find this in the manuals, screen shots in the manual do not show this either.

Since SDG1000X is a update of SDG1000, I don't think comparing it with SDG2000X is fair. It makes more sense to show a table with the differences between SDG1000 and SDG1000X.

I have very fast reply from Jexy at tech support and the answer is yes for 50  \$\Omega\$ output only.

Edit as promised
I got the same pic as simone.pignatti  has posted below from Jext at tech support.
But he also sent some more as attached

At this moment Siglent signal generators outperform Rigol signal generators in the same price range.
So it is very easy to decide a purchase.

Thanks guys for checking !

May I suggests that Siglent updates the user manual accordingly. They are not mentioning this dBm capability at all, also not in the SDG2000X

This is because most of the firmware contents are the same. They have the same root password too.
Files in zip are exactly one month old... may be they have different calendar.

Previously there was questions about dBm level settings and mostly I can see only then 50ohm impedance in images and in messages.

SDG1000X series  (as also what ever brand and model) can not tell dBm for undefined Hi-Z load. Why - may some noob ask. Because dBm is POWER unit. How can set power if load is unknown (high-z).
So with this Hi-Z output setting dBm is disabled.  With all other output load settings dBm can use.

With defined loads, power level can set as dBm.
User can define load from 50ohm up to 100kohm.
Example if output freq is over 10MHz Hi-Z max Vpeak-peak is 10V (or 5Vpeak what is same) and internal source impedance is always 50ohm.

Now with 50ohm load this maximum Voltage is of course half, 5Vpeak-peak (2.5Vpeak) and this is 1.77 Vrms and to this 50 ohm load it give 62.5mW   what is 17.96 dBm  (all values bit rounded)

But then what happend if I set load impedance  to some other value.
Say example to 600ohm. 
This same maximum output level is now 12.49dBm.

With same setting, maximum level to 100kohm.
Now it give only -9.03dBm 

Yes it calculate right value for this load what user have told to generator.

Of course it can also manually calculate if want. Only what need think is this
GND -- [(G~ Ri 0ohm) -- (internal 50ohm) ---(SDGChxOut)] --- Rload -- GND
And G~ V is same what it tell for Hi-Z V level.

First calculate voltage across this Rload.

Using this voltage  calculate power  across Rload. 

For dBm calculus this AnalogDevices tool is quite good.
http://www.analog.com/en/design-center/interactive-design-tools/dbconvert.html

No need calculate (exept that calculations are fun and for young peoples also useful for better understanding things),
of course Siglent SDG´s do it for you
.

In this example image SDG1kX output is set for maximum level using dBm scale and load impedance 600 ohm
Commonly dBm is used for 50ohm system but there is lot of other impedances what we use in practice.
Also SDG2000X series load can set from 50ohm to 100kohm, just same.



Advantage over SDG2000X in SDG1000X is its new square/rectangle wave circuit. It can do full BW Square. (30MHz model 30MHz and 60MHz model 60MHz).

In this image example about SDG1kX 60MHz square. Measured using old HP boat anchor but this scope have real 50ohm input impedance instead of what can find in cheap machines as "50 ohm input".


Also in somewhere in web I have seen some total crap claims that SDG1000X flatness is not very good.
This is what I can see and also I have checked it using HP power meter and results are inline.



Sweep from 5MHz to 60MHz  with 4 different levels. (yes, under 1.001Vpeak-peak level flatness is not very perfect but, still quite good.
Edit Add: SA horizontal scale linear. SDG1000X frequency sweep linear.


ETA:
Because some user have asked.
When you go to set Output Load
(Utility >> Output Setup >> Load >>  you can here select HighZ or 50ohm. )
If you select 50ohm then you see cursor also apperas over 50ohm. Now you can adjust also other values 50 - 100kohm using adjusting knob or enter value using keyboard)

Here  Square from SDG1032X with its maximum 30MHz Square. (SDG1062X maximum is 60MHz Sqr what was displayed in previous image)
And for compare, Siglent SDG2042X with its maximum 25MHz Square.
This is why I told that SDG1000X series have special circuit for Sqr what SDG2000X series do not have albeit it is other way higher performace model.



SDG2042X 25MHz (max)



SDG1032X 30MHz (max)

Game over.

Here examples with same settings what are used in this Rigol DG1000Z thread. After I look this I made tiny test with Siglent again with same setup. (exept that used scope is far better)

https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/rigol-dg1032z-can-it-be-upgraded-to-dg1062z-or-is-hw-different/msg1306309/#msg1306309

Examples
15MHz, 25MHz (as with Rigol)
After then 30MHz and last 60MHz.
Square wave, 50ohm Tektronix feed thru terminator in scope input. Scope used here SDS1202X-E

As can see SDG1000X Square wave is in its own class compared to Riglol.

Even with 60MHz there can still see some flat top and nothing like Rigol with 25MHz.

EDIT: for more easy compoare I add these Rigol images also here, 15MHz and 25MHz.

In previous msg we can see how this generator Square wave works up to 60MHz.
Square wave is produced with new special circuits and this rise and fall time is available only with square function. This is also far better than Rigol DS1000Z series but also better than Siglent SDG2000X series.

But then there is some factory limits in SDG1000X and here I have done some experimental work for look if these limits are written in stone or... 

Of course factory limits are with reasons. Example level limits related to frequency  need stay untouched for avoid some components over stress.

Here some examples about something. (these are not abs max stretched limits but with these limits not yet so much bad effects in signals quality etc.)






1.  Factory limit for triangle wave is 500kHz. 
There can see how it works with 2MHz and with 5MHz. (FW limit set for 5MHz)
This is just how much we accept turn point rounding (as can see in 50% symmetry image)
Other image is with 0% symmetry setting what give maximal corner ringing (and rise time) using 500kHz, 2MHz and 5MHz.








2. Factory limits for Pulse are 12.5MHz max freq, minimum width 32.6ns and minimum rise/fall time 16.8ns.
In these images can see rise/fall limits are now 11.8ns and then can rise max freq limits for 15MHz
Also limits can stretch more but not without adverse effects due to signal filters and fact that this is 150MSa/s machine. 






3. Factory limit is max 20kHz from internal source.
Here max is set for max 50kHz. In image 50% AM with 50kHz and carrier around 51MHz. (+3dBm @50?)






4. Factory limit for Arb is 6MHz
Here limit is set for 10MHz.  Small drop in peaks level. (think peaks freq)

Thanks for the links, rf-loop!  I'm thinking that the SDG1000X firmware layout must be similar to the SDG2000X and that some of the features they made available to their units might be available for ours.  I think I'll poke around...

Well, After doing some poking around and seeing what some have done with the SDG2000X AWGs, I managed to upgrade my SDG1032X to an SDG1062X!  It seems most of the Siglent devices (as I guess all these types of devices nowadays) are using embedded Linux on an ARM micro, and once you have root access it's relatively easy to make configuration modifications.   

I've attached a couple of screenshots showing the 1032's new and improved 60MHz output.  Another screenshot shows the system info screen with the serial number intact, but with a better model number :-)

I've also attached a text document that is an annotated telnet session with the device.  If you are comfortable with Linux, it's trivial.  If not, the document walks you through the modification process, step-by-step.  You should still be comfortable with remote consoles, telnet, and LAN IP stuff.

I must say I'm really impressed with all the Siglent gear I have, and with the ability to hack err... modify them, there is really a lot of value for the money.  :-+

In some my prevous msg can see some scope images about changes.
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/siglent-sdg1000x-waveform-generators/msg1307521/#msg1307521
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/siglent-sdg1000x-waveform-generators/msg1309013/#msg1309013

Here images from SDG1000X screen


Ramp, factory limit 500kHz, here rised to 5MHz.  (of course corners are rounded with 5MHz)
Arb is limited to 6MHz, here 10MHz
Some internal modulations are limited to 20kHz by factory, here 50kHz
Sweep time max is 500s from factory, Here rised to 100ks (bit over one day)
Pulse rise and fall times from factory 16.8ns, here 11.8ns
These some limits here are not maximally changed "up to" values. I have not tested what are max values and not even these my values for test carefully all things how they change signal quality when SDG is used outside of factory limits.
Then output max level limit (this was only experimental test if it can modify at all or not). From factory it is 0-10MHz max 20Vpp and over 10MHz 10Vpp. Here changed so that 0-12MHz is 20Vpp (Do not change these factory level limits! (exept if you really KNOW - here know is not synonym for believe - you can do it in your individual special use so that it can not make damage or shorten lifetime) It may permanently damage output amplifiers. All understand who is fully responsible if your output amplifiers etc fails and it happend easy when go out from factory limits.

New firmware for SDG1000X series.

Version 1.01.01.30.R1
12.8 MB
https://www.siglentamerica.com/download/6889/

Changelog
1. Supported Up followed by Down Sweep mode in Linear sweep (no change for Log sweep).
2. Changed the amplitude strategy of AM modulation: The carrier stays fixed at the amplitude, regardless of the modulation setting.
3. Increased the upper limit of Harmonics number from 10 to 16.
4. Added an icon to indicate clock source is internal or external.
5. Supported specifying Arb type by remote control when the modulating waveform is Arb.
6. Supported changing the unit of amplitude without any amplitude change by long pressing the "Amplitude" softkey.
7. Added "User" option under "PowerOn Setting".
8. Added "Normal" as a new UI color style.
9. Added memory space information in Store/Recall UI.
10. Added ARB waveform name to display, allowing user to know which Arb waveform is loaded.
11. Optimized response of the universal knob.
12. Fixed several bugs:
a) Burst cycles not corrected when it is set to a value ≥65536. [2017/12/25-1116387]
b) In some sweep case the start and stop frequencies deviate from the set values.

2. Changed the amplitude strategy of AM modulation: The carrier stays fixed at the amplitude, regardless of the modulation setting.

This was very very good change. After long time finally tested this using SA and it really works. Not it is nice to use for some radio tuning works and works similar with normal RF generators.
I have long missed this feature in all Siglent SDG.

Note: now also (some) users need be careful. If he set amplitude, say example 1Vpp. And he now "believe" that all what is coming out do not exceed 1Vpp. This is not anymore true when user turns AM modulation on, of course peak value depends mod depth and is double if mode depth is 100%. Carrier stay now same level but modulated signal time domain amplitude depends now AM modulation depth.
Of course, learning helps. It is very important to understand how devices work and the characteristics of different signals also in theory.


Quote
6. Supported changing the unit of amplitude without any amplitude change by long pressing the "Amplitude" softkey.

Many times useful in practice. No need calculate or conversion table.
Just set -7.65dBm and later if want look or set it using Vrms or Vpeak just bit longer 1second push "amplitude" key for switch between units. Previously it was not possible.

And some other useful changes.

But now, old  _eevblog.ads version is .22.
It is very important to update FW to more new version. One very important thing is that .22 version do not support Siglent USB recovery at all if "bad happen".  First FW version it is supported is 22R5   (but there was not so many other things. So not useful to "eevblog" it.
Now this 33R1 have so much  advantages and fixes that perhaps it is better if we have eevblog for it.
Of course if do using eevblog 22 it can update to official 33R1
But if want or have done also other modifications (some useful mods with some functions limits) every update to official version overwrite these some nice things (exept model) what are possible with eevblog version...

So let's hope some day...

I have difficulties to understand the above - do you say updating from 22R5 to 30R1 "destroys" the "little inofficial upgrade" from SDG1032X to SDG1062X?

Answer to your question: I did not say anything like this you ask. Where from you get this.

If you did not understand what I said (it tells that you have not done these other things) then do not worry at all. It does not affect or mean anything in your case. ;)

Answer to your question: I did not say anything like this you ask. Where from you get this.

If you talk about "eevblog 22" you probably mean user @janekivi's version of firmware 22, which (re-)enables telnet. And probably the most popular "modification" relates to the file NSP_system_info.xml.
Since you talk about "...update to official version overwrite these some nice things..." that imo could lead a reader to think you're talking about the mod of the model (32X->62X)...

Anyway, for me this looks like - it is still unknown if upgrading to 30R1 (imo there is no "33R1" so far, btw) will revert the model patch, and it is also not yet clear if it would be possible to revert back to @janekivi's version 22 in case re-enabling telnet is necessary.

that's probably more a problem of "language", than a "technical aspect", i guess...

The level of modifications that each user in this forum does to his equipments varies. That's the reason of the misunderstanding.

Check this msg to see what I mean:
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/siglent-sdg1000x-waveform-generators/msg1448961/#msg1448961

A new FW with just a "release" level modification should not disable the ability to roll back to previous versions.

The BW mod will continue valid, as usual. Regarding the root pwd, let's wait for janekivi or me.... if I find the time.

As these generators have a 'special' circuit for generating square wave (which is a great feature!), are there any limitations of features on the square wave output? What I mean, can you still add all modulations on square wave the same way as on sine wave?

Tester here in the UK have 10% discount on Siglent kit this Black Friday (now).

Square wave modulations: (square but of course also rectangle (other than 50% duty)  in this mode)
AM, DSB-AM, FM, PM, FSK, ASK, PSK
PWM is not possible.

Sine wave modulations just as Square wave modulations.
And also, when Sinewave AM is in use (new FW versions): Level is carrier level! Modulation on/off do not affect carrier level and also carrier level is independent of modulation depth. And this is very nice for example working with RF things like radios etc. AM modulated signal level works as normal RF-generator.



Ramp modulations same as square.

Pulse wave modulations
Only PWM.

Arb modulations
same as square.

Thanks. Decided to order the SDG1062X ... and SDM3055  ::) My Black Friday was relatively cheap until almost midnight when placed the order on Tester/Pass.

I have quite a bit of projects coming and have some plans, and only have two PSUs and (good) scope at the moment. 10% discount is not massive but when the starting price was already ok and those were on my shopping list anyway. I know I could have hacked the SDG1032X but I'm not too much into playing with such stuff and the price difference wasn't huge.

https://www.siglentamerica.com/download/8115/

Changelog
1. Supported TrueArb: 2~16 kpts
2. Optimized the UI of selecting built-in arbs


1. This also need urgently new updated User Manual's so that users can understand how to get all out from this  major improvement  and data sheets.
 
It is really nice upgrade. "TrueArb" technology  is big advantage in some situations when need Arb  without 1 clock jitter and/or jump over details, due to adjustable sampling speed (max 30Msa/s in TrueArb mode) and adjustabe Arb memory length. ( 2 to 16k.)

2. Previously selecting Arb from memory to use was cumbersome.  Also previously selecting Arb and then select some other Arb was really cumbersome. Now with this preview on screen and together with rotary encoder push it is easy and fast to select and change Arb waveforms in use. Well "Optimized" Siglent!

Interesting surprice find.

Yesterday I found an issue with SDG1032X when I connected it to an audio amplifier. Every time I change frequency, I hear a click in the loudspeaker. I didn't check this issue with an oscilloscope but I know that it doesn't happen with my BK Precision BK4075. Is there any way to fix it?

Attached a video which demonstrates the issue.

During the final fase of implementing a method of doing measurements with the SDG1032X and SDS11004X-E with an accuracy of < 1 mV over a range of 0..1 V.

https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/using-a-awg-and-a-scope-do-a-low-voltage-level-characterization-of-a-1n4005/msg2467191/#msg2467191


I had an unoptimized glimps of it and was very pleased with the results, however the SDG1032X fails on me and starts up only showing the logo.   :scared:

I've seen Dave's recovery video, and also read this:

Is there a way to get the recovery files for this device and do a quick recovery?

During the final fase of implementing a method of doing measurements with the SDG1032X and SDS11004X-E with an accuracy of < 1 mV over a range of 0..1 V.

I had an unoptimized glimps of it and was very pleased with the results, however the SDG1032X fails on me and starts up only showing the logo.   :scared:

I've seen Dave's recovery video, and also read this:

I think I have what you need on the PC at home.
Do you know which FW version you had installed ?
I’ll be in touch by PM and will need your email to send the recovery files. I’ll be home in ~12 hrs.

Hi tautech, that would be great! My new device came with the newest firmware, so the recovery option should be included. Any idea whether the device depended calibration of it would survive the procedure?

This error got me thinking about the file system. If this problem is fixable, I would like to create further self constructed arbitrary waves at the usb drive. Does anyone know if thats possible using scpi commands?

Have a look here at some samples I got from the factory years back......they were for the SDG1000 series but should still work with X models:

Thanks for the link. But I didn’t find any info on how to select the wave destination. Maybe creating a symbolic link on the filesystem to redirect all custom waves to the usb drive is maybe the easiest.

I don’t know how well the wear leveling of the normal save location is.

That would be great, but there’s still the question whether the calibration will survive the recovery.

If it doesn’t, then it might become less useful, certainly regarding the level of precision it had and the use I made of it. I think we’ll have to see. Maybe there’s a procedure to create a copy of the calibration data?

Maybe it can boot from the usb, without altering anything so the procedure can be run even in the stuck boot situation?

Thanks to tautech, :-+

I could go back to finalizing my experimenting with the wave generator and the scope.

I haven't noticed any difference in how the device was/is calibrated, so that supports the idea that the calibration data is left alone. :-+

You mean this [telnet_SDG1000X.ADS]

This you can not flash at all. You do all like FW update with this file and SDG tell that it fails... do not care...do not shut off... just telnet and do what ever inside SDG system. If you do not know what to do there inside system and how... then please study first...yes it may take time to find all or if you find right place there can perhaps find all very detailed full instructions (it is like spring festival gift package what include all you need) what can use like blind (after you have telnet working) but be careful... it do not forgive any kind of typemistakes.   Do not try..oops...try...oops iteration... because this method may lead you to real problems and nearly like "destroy" your SDG

And seriously, do NOT downgrade to semidanger factory original or "eevblog version" FW ....01P22 even if you find it somewhere because if bad happen and it goes to boot problem... it do not support USB recovery method.

It is not real FW at all...   it just open port...(and it is open just only until you boot again SDG, so every time you boot you need do this FW trick... and you need boot during this work except if you do all mods at once, and remember to keep original files also there in system but renamed for possible later needs)  now do your homework and read.

Thank you.

Although I would only have understood another firmware with such a small change if "this" is a real problem.  ::)
So at least I have never even noticed a problem with bouncing buttons when operating and I have not been able to read anything about it.  :-//

Anyone tried 1.01.01.33R1B6 on their SDG1032/62X ?

Any changes (apart from the explanation with the bouncing buttons) noticed ?

Telnet access (with the trick of the "wrong" firmware) is still possible?

I tested the 1.01.01.33R1B6 on my SDG1062X in some points (certainly not in all).
So far I could not find any changes and, what is important, none with negative effects.

I have not yet tested an influence on Telnet access or whether the special temporary access firmware still works.

Sometimes I need to document the tests I perform. If I use a signal generator, I want to be able to save screenshots which show its configuration. In Linux it is fairly simple and can be done LXI Tools (see the attached screenshot). What is the way to get the screenshots from the AWG in Windows? EasyWaveX doesn't have this option. Any other ideas?

And one more question on Siglent software. Do EasyWaveX and EasyScopeX work in Linux under WineHQ? Are there any Linux alternatives?

Apologies, perhaps I misunderstood, but you asked the question "What is the way to do it in Windows?"

I assumed you were remotely running the generator from a Windows PC, in which case using Snipping Tool you could take a screenshot.

Sorry I can't answer your question.

After updating to 1.01.01.33R1B5 my SDG1032X I found that it started to be very laggy with detecting and browsing USB stick. In fact it acts the same with 1.01.01.33R1. It needs quite a long time to recognize USB stick is plugged in and when it does sometimes there is a message the drive has been removed and than detected again. Browsing USB stick content is a pain, it takes a second or two until it scrolls up or down. Easiest way to replicate this issue is plug in the USB drive and get into firmware update menu.

Could someone confirm that issue with other SDG1000X device?

Yes. At first I thought it was related to the USB stick file system. Now I think that it happens when the stick has many files on it. Did you try it with  an empty USB stick?

Yes I did. And in fact, when you have small number of files on USB stick (i.e only 3) browsing works OK. But when there are some directories with files inside just browsing the root folder without enterning any of them may cause umounting USB stick and pop up the message that device has been removed. It shouldn't look like that. User might not be aware of this issue and suspect USB stick is corrupted or not supported. On SDS1104X-E oscilloscope browsing works with no issues at all. I think it's a bug and should be investigated and fixed.

Just tried it (SDG1062X with 1.01.01.33R1B5) with a fairly full stick (4 levels directory depth, more than 20 files within the directories)
and noticed no slowdown, no delays in browsing through the file system.

The stick is a short Sandisk USB 3.0 16 GB

Maybe it was just that they weren't exactly the same conditions as yours ?

I agree, conditions are different. I tried to investigate deeper and reproduce this issue and found out that total numer of files on USB stick matters. In my opinion problem starts to be annoying when there are more than 300 files. Over a 1000 and there are bizarre USB stick disconnections, generator might may stop responding to pressing buttons, removing the stick bring generator back to life, it might happen that siggen stops recognizing particular USB stick it had problems with. In that case only power cycling can fix that. It seems directory structure doesn't make any difference.

And one more thing is truncating file names on content browsing (however we can see file sizes now, that's good), which has been introduced in fw 1.01.01.30.R1 I think. Take a look at the pictures - which one is B5 or B6 version ;). Yes, we can always rename files, but why did they do that funny thing with 3 dots? The screen might be divided different way.

He will want to read the FAT data from the stick and is probably "overwhelmed" with such a number of entries (computing power and possibly still the size of the ram) ?!?

If you know that, you should reserve your own stick for it.
It is a waveform generator and not an x core with an x GHz computer...  :-X

The thing with the "truncated" filenames I did not notice at all.  :o

I confirm that my concerns were not well founded.
The THD was caused by the spectrum analyzer (set without using the proper attenuation).

My youtube channel is called "The RF noob" for a reason  :-DD

In any case I measured better THD values on my Siglent 1032X than those stated in the manual.
Also, the frequency counter works up to 250mhz (vs 200mhz in the manual).
I am very happy!

Something has been badly done publicly, it is difficult to correct it afterwards.  ::)
If you absolutely have to make a video in yt, you should first be 100% sure of what you have done before publishing.

That should be true for politicians (...)  8)

But since all people make mistakes once in a while, it can be quite educative to see the mistake (published) and then as a follow-up the insight what led to the mistake and the remedy. Obviously, @mio83 still needs to practice some more with the settings of his SA (RBW to lower the noise floor and the like) but he'll get there I'm sure. Aren't we all "noobs" at a certain level?  ;)

Does anyone know of a programming guide for the SDG1000X series that is later than the version hosted at the NA and EU Siglent sites? That is version PG02-E04A, and it does not agree with the instrument's behavior in some cases.

While some discrepancies are minor1, others are not. Here, for example, is what the instrument reports when set up for PWM modulation; emphasis added:

C1:MDWV STATE,ON,PWM,MDSP,SINE,SRC,INT,FRQ,333HZ,DEVI,3.115081301e-06S,DDEVI,38.3155,CARR,WVTP,PULSE,FRQ,123000HZ,AMP,2.8288V,AMPVRMS,1.4144Vrms,OFST,0V,DUTY,61.5,RISE,1.68e-08S,FALL,1.68e-08S,DLY,0

The programming guide says that the PWM parameter "DEVI" specifies percentage. "<PWM dev> := Duty cycle deviation. The unit is "%". Value depends on the carrier duty cycle .", from page 23, Section 3.5. But as shown above the instrument actually dimensions that parameter in seconds, not as a percentage.

And the parameter "DDEVI" which follows is not mentioned in the documentation at all.

I'm wondering if there might be a corrected and updated version of the programming guide available somewhere.

- Hexley

1Note, for example, that the modulation type (PWM, in this example) follows the "STATE,ON," fields in the output string shown above, whereas the example in the manual shows it coming before the STATE fields. Or note that the carrier amplitude is reported in both V and Vrms, though the documentation doesn't include Vrms in the description of the CARR,AMP field, saying only "<amplitude>:= carrier amplitude. The unit is volts, peak to peak Vpp "". These are indeed minor issues, of course, but they illustrate a few of the differences between the manual and the actual instrument.

Because e.g. PWM did not come later with new firmware but was always available, it should actually be documented from the start.
Have you already looked into the programming guide of the 2000X and 6000X series ?
Probably there is no more than for the 1000X...

Maybe Tautech has a good channel to Siglent for more detailed documentation ?

Updated documentation has always followed feature changes brought about by new FW unfortunately and it's something I've grumbled about to high levels not long ago.
Keep checking for manual updates is all I can suggest as they do come available once they are translated from the Chinese original versions.
I look here when trying to find new versions of anything:
