Geotest Releases GP1665W and GP1665H Replacement Instruments for the Wavetek 178 and HP 8165A

AUTOTESTCON 2005 - Irvine, CA (September 19, 2005) - Geotest-Marvin Test Systems, Inc., a Marvin Group Company, today announced the addition of the GP1665W/H waveform generator and synthesizer instruments to their legacy instrument replacement catalog.

The GP1665 Series utilizes Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS) for stability and accuracy over the full frequency range from 10µHz to 50MHz. The instrument features amplitude and frequency modulation capability; precision trigger, gate, and burst modes; and linear or logarithmic sweep capability over three decades with sweeps going down to 1 µHz. Customization of the GP1665’s command set firmware ensures GPIB command set compatibility for the Wavetek 178 or the HP 8165A, resulting in 100% form/fit/function replacement compatibility for these instruments.      

"The GP1665W and GP1665H are cost-effective solutions for customers that are looking to maintain current test systems and preserve their investment in test program software that use the Wavetek and HP generators." said David Manor, Geotest Vice President, Engineering.
"The large number of test systems deployed with these instruments makes the GP1665 a very attractive solution for those users that are looking to maintain legacy programs and systems."
