RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

new function generator - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

I just got my new function generator and Oscilliscope from Rigol North America. I got both for under $1000 each. These additions give me generation and measurment capability to 100MHz. I got the DG4102 100Mhz Function Generator http://www.rigolna.com/products/wavefor ... rs/dg4102/

and their 100MHz Oscilloscope DS1102CA http://www.rigolna.com/products/digital ... /ds1102ca/. Both have remote program capability and were easy to setup and start using.

I found several features on the Function Generator that I really liked. They had full sweep Linear and Log, full ARB waveform capability and white noise output in addition to several standard outputs like sine, square etc. It has 130 predefined waveforms. So it has some decent capability.

I ran both Function generator and Oscope thru their paces and they performed well. The Function Generator did 100Mhz at several volts Peak to peak as well as down to 1microHz. Amazing capability for a box under $1K each. The Oscope was easy and quick to setup and view the output. I also have FFT spectral capability on the Oscope so I could see the harmonic levels as well as the fundamental. These 2 instruments put me well on the way to a full home test lab.
