Waveform Types

Your hardware can support generation of arbitrary waveforms or standard waveforms, or both. If your device supports standard waveforms, you can set the gain and offset to control the output. Standard waveform types include:

  • Sine

  • Square

  • Triangle

  • RampUp

  • RampDown

  • DC

You can control the behavior of different waveform types using the associated properties. The table shows you which properties work with the supported waveform types for Digilent devices.

This diagram illustrates how these properties affect a standard square waveform.

Standard waveforms cannot be clipped. You must keep Gain and Offset values within voltage range. You cannot change Gain and Offset of arbitrary waveforms.
