Chapter 2. Signal Generation

Overview

In this chapter, you will learn how to use the VIs in the Analysis Library to generate many different types of signals. Some of the applications for signal generation are

  • Simulating signals to test your algorithm when real-world signals are not available (for example, when you do not have a DAQ board for obtaining real-world signals).

  • Generating signals to apply to a D/A converter (for example, in control applications such as opening or closing a valve).

Goals

  • Learn about the concept of normalized frequency.

  • Understand the difference between Wave and Pattern VIs (for example, the Sine Wave VI and the Sine Pattern VI).

  • Build a simple function generator using the VIs in the Signal Generation subpalette.
