AM Modulator – Arbitrary Waveform Generator

In the previous post I showed how we can create an AM Modulator with ScicosLab/Scicos. In this post we can use this file to create a .CSV file that can be used to drive an Arbitrary Waveform Generator so it can test equipment in our lab as required. Traditionally Function Generators only produced Sine, Square […]

Create Any Waveform on Your Function Generator

Function Generators typically produce Sine, Square, Triangle, Saw Tooth and DC signals. Many modern instruments include an AWG or Arbitrary Waveform Generator signal as an additional selection. This allows you to construct your own custom waveform to meet your testing needs. Typical examples might be a dual/multi tone audio signal to test intermodulation distortion in […]
