Based on several advanced technologies, IDSG101 can realize some unique functions that common desktop devices have in a small size. Though this device is as small as your hand, it can realize 80M sampling rate, maximum 10 MHz and 10Vpp range output.

IDSG101 is capable of full functional arbitrary waveform management and output. Because the data of arbitrary waveform adopts the files system management and the protocol is fully open to users, users can manage several arbitrary waveform files easily by the technology of virtual U disk.

With a high solution 3 inch full color LCD and resistive touch screen, IDSG101 has an expressive English interface, which helps users to get started using this device easily. IDSG101's firmware can be upgraded, and we will perfect this device gradually according to users' feedback.

Basic Operation


IDSG101 0.jpg IDSG101 1.jpg

Sync Connector: Sync Output. When you out put a standard wave through this connector, you will see a TTL wave (low level 0V, high level 5V) that have the same frequency and phrase with the standard wave you choose. It can be the clock or trigger signal of digital system when sync connector connect with digital system. Output Connector: Waveform output end. With an output Impedance of 50Ω, IDSG101 can output standard/arbitrary waveform though this connector. Please note that high voltage cannot be accessed to this connector.

Micro USB: For power supply and computer connecting.

Extension Connector: This connector includes UART, interface of trigger input/output.

Operation Interface

The operation interface pictures show as below. Since IDSG101 adopts a resistive screen, you’d better use touch pen to do operating.

System set


IDSG101 works as a virtual U disk

IDSG101 has a 128M memory that can storage the whole system and your arbitrary waveform files. Connect IDSG101 to your computer via USB cable, and then you need to press the “enter USB flash disk mode” button to make your computer identify this device.

When they connect together, you can find two folders in the removable disk: <system> and <arb_wave>.

System folder cannot be modified. And you can put your waveform files in the folder <arb_wave>. Please note that IDGS101 supports wvt file only. If not this format, you’d better transform it to.

How to generate wvt waveform files

IDSG101 supports wvt waveform files only, we offer two methods to generate a wvt files.

  • Use Agilent Waveform Editor & Harmonic Wave Creator:

  • Use MATLAB:

How to Upgrade Firmware

Firmware is keeping upgrading to fix the bugs and perfect the product.

Step 1: Download the firmware(update.bin file)

Step 2: Connect IDSG101 to you PC, and enter into the Virtual U Disk mode.

Step 3: Drag the firmware into the root directory of U disk.

Step 4: Exit the Virtual U Disk mode, at this time, IDSG101 will detect the upgrade firmware automatically.

Step 5: When you see the picture as below, please touch the button to upgrade.

Step 6: When upgrading the firmware, don't do any operation on this device, and don't cut off the power, otherwise, the upgrade will fail.
