    This is a Tektronix FG501 1 MHz Function Generator. It outputs sine, square, ramp and triangle outputs. There is a variable amplitude from 0 - 15 V p-p.
    =========================================
    The FG501 Function Generator outputs sine, square, triangular, pulse and ramp waveforms from 0.001 Hz to 1 MHz. It is intended for use in any of the TM-Series power supplies, such as the TM503.
    Frequency is adjusted by a decade switch for ranges and dial for X1 to X10.
    Frequency stability is better than 2% (a function of temperature).
    Frequency can also be controlled, over a 1000:1 range, by applying an external input to the VCF connector.
    Output amplitudes of 15 Vp-p open circuit and 7.5 V into 50-ohms can be obtained.
    Additional offsets of up to 5 V.
    Sinewave distortion is less than 1% and risetime is less than 100 nS on pulses.
    Triangle and ramp linearity is within 1%.
