The Sony/Tektronix AWG2021 is an arbitrary waveform generator introduced in 1995.

It uses a 3.5" floppy disk for storage. Options include a second channel, digital outputs (TTL or ECL), and an FFT editor.

Each channel additionally has two 1-bit marker outputs that can be placed at any memory location.

The AWG2021 is programmable through a GPIB interface. Versions without the digital output options additionally have an RS-232 interface.
