    The VM3640A is a high-performance VXIbus arbitrary waveform generator that is ideal for applications requiring standard function generator capability, or the need to generate custom-defined waveforms. Direct digital synthesis is used to provide outstanding functionality, with standard sine and square waves available to 20 MHz.

    A powerful feature of the VM3640A is that it is part of the VMIP™ family of VXIbus products. This gives the user the added flexibility of combining the VM3640A with two additional VM3640As, providing a multi-channel arbitrary waveform generator. The VM3640A can also be combined with other instruments, such as digital Multimeter, digitizers or counters, to create a multi-function, C-size card.
