3390 ARB modulation with ARB

Post by Antoine_Zen » January 18th, 2013, 1:26 am


Model 3390 specifications states that AM/FM/PM modulation could use Arbitrary as carrier and as modulation. But is possible to modulate an Arbitrary with another arbitrary (Different) ?

Hello Antoine,

It is not clear whether you are asking if it is possible to perform an internal modulation or external modulation using only the Arbitrary Waveform function. In either case, the Arbitrary Waveform function does not allow for modulation of the arb waveform. We do note in the manual that the Arb Waveform function can serve as a modulation source however it is limited to the functions you have already noted. The 3390 does not allow for internal or external modulation of the Arbitrary Waveform function.
