    Tektronix FG 501A function generator. It generates a frequency to 2 MHZ in sine, triangle, or square wave. It has a 50 ohm output. This is designed to take up one slot in a 500 series power supply
    ========================================================
    Tektronix FG501A Function Generator outputs sine, square, triangular, waveforms from 0.002 Hz to 2 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 setting frequency. Frequency can also be controlled, over a 1000:1 range, by applying an external input to the VCF connector. Output amplitudes of 30 Vp-p open circuit and 7.5 V into 50-ohms can be obtained. Additional offsets of up to 5 V are accessible. Sinewave distortion is less than 1%. Triangle linearity is within 1%.
