Possibly overkill, but Agilent has a very state of the art
arbitrary waveform generator that is light years ahead of
anything else.  It uses a chip with the internal codename
"Griffin" that was developed in the department I worked in
at Agilent until I retired in March.  IIRC, the complete
price for the generator in a box is about $60K.   You
didn't mention budget constraints, but this is an off
the shelf solution vs who knows how much of your time.
