Function generator

The function generator is a voltage source that can create constant, rectangle, sine and triangle signals. The voltage range is restricted to -10 V to +10 V. The frequency, the amplitude and the Y-offset of the signal can be set within this range.

A voltage profile can be additionally specified. Data points can be set interactively with a mouse-click in the relevant graphic field. These can then be combined to a closed polygon. Alternatively, existing data points can be marked and both numeric values for the time and the corresponding voltage can be entered in the input fields. If the option Loop is selected, then the voltage profile is started again.
