USB Tester More Like This USBwave12 is a new concept in USB function generator products. PC based function generators offer many user benefits including flexibility, ease of use and economy. USBwave12 combines very small form factor with high performance normally associated with much larger bench type products. Power for the function generator is provided via the USB interface connector, further simplifying the user experience. USBwave12 is small enough to be carried in a shirt pocket or laptop bag but uses a standard BNC connector.
