The SIGLENT USB-GPIB adaptor currently works with the following SIGLENT instruments: Multimeters – SDM3065X/SDM3065X-SC SDM3055/SDM3055-SC SDM3045X Function/Arbitrary waveform generators – SDG6000X Series SDG5000 Series SDG2000X Series SDG1000X Series SDG1000 Series Spectrum & vector network analyzers – SSA3000X Series SVA1000X Series Oscilloscopes – SDS1000CFL
SIGLENT instruments with USB ports can supply 500mA steady current at 5 V.
Starting at firmware version 1.01.01.33R1, the SIGLENT SDG1000X series of arbitrary waveform generators now feature TrueArb output capability. Traditional arbitrary waveform generators use DDS (direct digital synthesis) to create waveforms. This technique is very powerful, but at higher output frequencies, DDS begins to lose resolution because it will skip or drop output samples in order … Continued
The Universal Serial Bus (USB) is very popular and has added a tremendous level of convenience and flexibility to computer and peripheral controls, including test and measurement instrumentation. As with all technology, it isn’t always sunshine and blue skies. Here are some common troubleshooting steps for USB connection issues: – Is the instrument plugged in … Continued
The SIGLENT SPA1010 Amplifier can be a useful accessory for applications requiring higher voltage and/or current from a signal source like a SIGLENT SDG arbitrary waveform generator. The SPA features a power-on indicator LED, Short LED, a X10 indicator LED, and a set of switches on the front panel. To use: Connect the output of … Continued

The SDG series of arbitrary waveform generators have a number of built-in arbitrary waveforms including health-related waveforms like cardiac and math waveforms like sinc. To read the available waveforms, you can send the following string: STL? This will return a list similar to the following (the exact return data depends on the instrument model and firmware … Continued
Here is a table showing the output protection on the SIGLENT SDGThere is the ‘short circuit’ protection in all our generators.(he output of the generator can be connected together, please see the attached pic) Series Channels Max Sine Frequency (MHz) Arbitrary Waveform Data Depth Resolution (Bits) Output Protection SDG800 1 30 16 kpts 14 SC (all), OVP … Continued
The SDGs require UTF8 formatting for the words used to build an arbitrary waveform. The code may report “UnicodeDecodeError: ‘ascii’ codec can’t decode byte 0x80 in position 77: ordinal not in range(128)” This indicates that the arbitrary waveform data is coded as “ascii” which is not the expected data format “utf8”. Here is the proper … Continued
All SIGLENT instruments (except for the SHS1000 and SHS800 hand-held oscilloscopes) support SCPI remote control commands. For more information, download the specific instrument programming guide located on the product page.
