The SG5010 is an oscillator from Tektronix. An electronic oscillator is a circuit that converts direct current to an alternating current signal. Oscillators generate a periodic electronic signal, often in the form of sine or square waves. Engineers use oscillators on a variety of electronic devices.
- The Tektronix SG5010 is a audio signal generator plug-in for the TM5000 system
- It was co-introduced with the AA5001 audio analyzer to form an automated audio test system
The Tektronix SG5010 Programmable Oscillator generates a ultra-low distortion sine wave from 10 Hz to 163.8 kHz with less than 0.0008% THD. The THD is typically less than 0.0003% in the 20 Hz to 20 kHz range. The unit offers the full benefits of TM 5000 configurability, GPIB compatibility, and compliance with Tektronix Standard Codes and Formats. It generates five waveforms: sine wave, square wave, SMPTE/DIN intermodulation test signal, CCIF intermodulation test signal, and sine wave burst. All of these signals may be swept in frequency and amplitude.
