The V344 provides eight independent digitally synthesized waveform outputs, each programmable for frequency, amplitude, and phase.

Any-to-any channel summing, synchronization, and noise generation allows complex coordinated waveform generation within one module or across multiple modules. Hundreds or thousands of channels may be exactly synchronized through local electrical or remote fiberoptic links. Any output may be switched to a front-panel test connector, allowing in-crate calibration check without removing field cables.

One or more V344 modules may also be used to simulate complex, high-channel-count processes, such as radar and sonar arrays, complex rotating machinery and structural systems, diesel/jet engine simulation, stationary and aircraft AC power systems, thyristor/IGBT phase control, and many others.

The T344, a compact stand-alone, non-VME, RS-232/Ethernet controlled version of the V344, is also available for embedded applications.

The V344 can be an ideal system replacement for the HP models 3314A, 3325A, 3325B, 3326A, 8111A, 8116A, 8165A, 8175A, and 8904A.
