The F101b square wave frequency generator is a relatively small module that can generate 5V fixed voltage square waves. It requires an Android tablet to run and communicates wirelessly via Bluetooth to the tablet. Program files written for our current F125 are compatible with the  F101.  It is ideally suited to drive any equipment that requires a fixed 5V square wave.

                  

 

F101b Technical Specifications 

  • DDS square wave frequency generation module controlled and programmed by Android tablet
  • Android tablet can store virtually unlimited frequency program files
  • Program files can be standard F100 programs or Lua programs

  • Power input:   2.1 mm, 12 VDC, 1A. 

 

The F101b is not a replacement of our F125/165/170. We will still be producing the F125/165/170 generators. The F101b is a single 5V TTL output square generator intended to be used with any device that accepts a 5V square wave such as RB plasma and EMEM systems. It does not have the 13 V adjustable output of the F125/165/170.

 

Update Sept 2016:

F101b availability: Availability of the F101b is based on customer interest. We will have a first production batch made when we have enough customers showing interest. The pre-production unit has been ready for many months but such devices need to be made in fairly large batches to be economical. The target retail price for the F101 is $450 each with enclosure as seen above and $400 each for boards only in qty 3 or more.

F100 software for Android tablets

You can download and install this beta release of the F100 software for Android tablets. This software only works with the F101b generator. Do not download if you have one of our other generators. Of course without the F101b generator module you will not be able to actually produce frequencies. But it will give you an idea of what the software looks like and how it operates. You can run programs for simulation purposes.
