The M531 AWG is a member of Etc Measuring Lab 3 (EML3) family.

The M531 is a single channel USB arbitrary waveform generator compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 interface. The generator has two outputs: both generate same waveform, but with different peak-peak voltage. The low level output has 50ohm output impedance and maximal peak-peak voltage of 9V. There is no external power supply required to enable low level output (it is powered from USB bus).

The high level output has 600 ohm output impedance and maximal peak-peak voltage of 50V. External power supply (part of the package) is required to enable this output.

The powerful software is a part of package. All commonly used features are located in the main window and are easily accessible by mouse. The software is designed to make operation as comfortable and intuitive as possible.

The waveform library contains several pre-defined waveform (Sine, Triangle, Saw, Square). You can create new waveform (or modify existing one) by integrated editors (freeform editor, math editor, standard waves editor). It is possible to import data from the ASCII format (for example Matlab, Excel or any other application, which supports this format).

Optional software package is available: M530 Development kit, which will allow you to write your own application using the device.
