Model Marvin Test Solutions: MV-GX1200
Arbitrary Waveform Generator PXI Card, 50 MS/s, 14-bit with Waveform Sequencer

  • 50 MS/s sample rate
  • Programmable 10 digit sample clock with resolution of 1 uHz
  • 14-bit vertical resolution
  • 2 M samples memory depth
  • FM modes: FSK, ramped FSK, sweep, FM, and arbitrary FM

The Marvin Test MV-GX1200 is a high performance, single-channel PXI arbitrary waveform generator that combines a function generator, arbitrary waveform synthesizer, programmable sequencer, pulse generator, and modulation generator in one instrument. The MV-GX1200 delivers all this at a lower cost than comparable benchtop or VXI-based instruments.


With high sample rates of 50 MS/s, the Marvin Test MV-GX1200 is an ideal modulation source for troubleshooting encoding schemes. It also provides high speed waveforms to stimulate signal distortion, power line cycle dropouts, video signals, components failures and power supply transients.

The MV-GX1200 comes standard with 2 M samples of waveform memory, accessible via a high speed interface. Waveform memory is segmentable. This allows for storage and access of up to 4,096 different waveforms rapidly without having to download waveforms multiple times, which in turn enhances test throughput.

ArbConnection Software
The MV-GX1200 Arbitrary Waveform Generator includes ArbConnection software to control instrument functions, modes, and features. Freehand sketch allows the user to draw custom waveforms - allowing for easy creation of custom analog signals. The built-in equation editor allows for the creation of exotic functions, adding or subtracting components of a Fourier series for the characterization of digital or analog filters, or to inject random noise into a signal to test immunity to auxiliary noise.

The Marvin Test MV-GX1200 offers powerful sequencing capabilities which allows linkage of up to 4,096 waveform segments and/or bursts (repeated segments) into strings. A segment can be repeated up to 128 K times in burst mode. Sequenced functions can either run continuously or be initiated via a trigger. It is also possible to mix continuous and triggered segments within one sequence. These sequencing features permit the creation of complex waveforms or pulse patterns using a minimal amount of memory. Sequences are created by writing a sequence table. Sequence table downloads are extremely fast as ArbConnection writes directly to the register and does not require the overhead of an embedded controller.

Arbitrary Waveforms
The MV-GX1200 can also function as an Arbitrary Waveform Generator. Combined with the power of ArbConnection, there is virtually no limit to what can be created and generated. Waveform coordinates can be imported from a variety of sources such as MathLab, ASCII files, etc. Anything displayed on one of the composer screens can be downloaded quickly and generated by the main output. Two or more MV-GX1200 or MV-GX1201s can be placed in a chassis to harness the power of multi-instrument synchronization and create multiple, phase-controlled output channels, then vary module-to-module phase offsets to create a multi-phase signal source.
