Two new instruments for Moku:Lab

Moku:Lab introduced two new instruments at Laser World of Photonics in Munich

The all-in-one test and measurement device now includes an Arbitrary Waveform Generator and a Digital Filter Box, raising its portfolio to 10 professional-grade instruments. And what’s particularly satisfying is that these additions are completely free of charge.

The Arbitrary Waveform Generator produces custom waveforms that can be loaded from a file or input as a mathematical function, enabling high waveform complexity with 32 adjustable segments and up to 65,000 sample points. Bandwidth is also unlikely to let you down with update rates of up to 1 billion samples per second. In pulsed mode, waveforms can be output with more than 250,000 cycles of dead time between pulses, allowing you to hold and switch off your complex waveforms with high specificity. 

The Digital Filter Box creates up to eighth-order lowpass, highpass, bandpass, and bandstop filters with adjustable parameters. For example, a bandstop (notch) filter may be applied to dampen a troublesome resonance in a piezoelectric application. Because you can build and load a filter with a customised response, this highly practical instrument was added to the Moku:Lab with electronic engineers and similar professionals in mind.

The all-in-one device now integrates ten professional-grade instruments, including an Oscilloscope, Waveform Generator, Spectrum Analyser, Phasemeter, Data Logger, Lock-in Amplifier, PID Controller, Bode Analyser, an Arbitrary Waveform Generator, and a Digital Filter Box.

To try the new Arbitrary Waveform Generator and Digital Filter Box in your laboratory, download the Moku:Lab App free of charge from the Apple App store, or update your current version. Just like all Moku:Lab instruments, the new additions operate in demo mode, allowing you to simulate them without the need for Moku:Lab hardware.

About Liquid Instruments

Liquid Instruments was founded by Prof. Daniel Shaddock, Department of Quantum Science, Australian National University. Prof. Shaddock was recently elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society for pioneering development of precision optical interferometry in space, particularly for the detection of gravitational waves and for mapping the gravitational field of the earth.

The expert team at Liquid Instruments have backgrounds in laser interferometry, precision metrology, data science, software design, and engineering, with previous experience at NASA and other research institutions, demonstrating that Moku:Lab was developed with professional scientists and engineers in mind.
