PRESS RELEASE : Fluke announces 39x series of high-performance universal waveform generators

EVERETT, Wash. – Fluke Corporation, the world’s leading supplier of test and measurement equipment, introduces the 39x series of 125 MS/s universal waveform generators that produce high-resolution complex waveforms. The 14-bit resolution generators provide 16,384 output levels, allowing, for example, video or other complex waveforms to be generated with small details superimposed on large signals to enable testing of sensitive analog circuits.

The Model 396 single-channel and Model 397 dual-channel generators include 11 basic waveforms with adjustable parameters that are accessible from the front panel. The dual-output 397 can eliminate the need for two separate generators by simulating two signals phase locked or related to each other. The memory in both models can be divided into as many as 4,096 segments, which can be looped and linked in a variety of ways.

The Fluke 39x series is part of Fluke’s complete range of signal source generators designed for low frequency (50 MHz or lower) manufacturing and service applications.

US list price for the Fluke 396 is $4,595, and US list price for the Fluke 397 is $5,995. For more information on Fluke 396 and 397 universal waveform generators, visit, or contact Fluke Corporation, P.O. Box 9090, Everett, WA USA 98206, call (888) 308-5277, fax (425) 446-5116, or e-mail
