Catalog Description

Tektronix AWG5012B

 TEK-AWG5012B 1.2GS/s, 2ch, 14bits, 16M point/ch Arbitrary Waveform

*Of note is Option 8. It is a new option for both the AWG5000B/AWG7000B series
instruments (Opt 8 is standard on older AWG5000/7000). Opt 8 was created to
enable the reclassification of the base models and other options so that
licenses will not be required with the exception of this new option. Opt 8
units are classified as 3A002 and will require an export license for shipments
to customers outside North America.
Models without opt 8 will be classified as 3A992 and will not require export

**A AWG5000B/AWG7000B without option 8 can be upgraded. Option 8 is not a
keycode and is a return to factory upgrade. It is not a field upgrade.

Although the need for Option 08 will depend on a customer requirement Tek has
identified some of the applications where Option 08 is and is not required.
Option 08 - Required (export license required for some Asia/Pacific
Display Port (compliance testing)
Option 08 - Not Required
PCI-E (compliance testing)
Some RF applications (e.g. with RFXpress for WiMedia)
