Tektronix AWG Pulls Test into Era of Quantum Computing

Tektronix AWG Pulls Test into Era of Quantum Computing

When a company calls and says they have the best widget ever, you have to be skeptical. However, you also can’t help but be curious. When they talked about how it would advance the state of the art in radar, electronic warfare, and quantum-computing test, and make an engineer’s workspace tidier, I was smitten. I met up with the Tektronix team, led by Product Market Manager Kip Pettigrew, and wasn’t disappointed: The new AWG5200 arbitrary waveform generator is a work of art and function. Physically, it’s both commanding and imposing. It measures 18.13 × 6.05 from the front, but it’s 23.76 inches deep—so, while it’ll sit nicely within a test stack and help reduce clutter, the stack had better have a deep shelf (Figs. 1 and 2) . It’s what’s within those dimensions, and what you have to pay to get it, though, that give the AWG5200 a certain level of gravitas. For sure, it’s ha...
