AWG parameters

Postby mario.tavanti » Mon Feb 13, 2012 8:44 pm

I have a problem about parameters passed to the function ps2000_set_sig_gen_arbitrary of PS2000.dll;i don't understand my errors in the project attached where I try to generate a sinusoidal signal(I know that this can be done by the buit-in generator but I want to learn how to use the AWG).Can someone help me?

Hi Mario,

I've put together an example to show how to call the ps2000_set_sig_gen_arbitrary function - one of the things that I noticed about your file was that you are calling the function inside a while loop which isn't recommended.

I've also had to change the 20e-9 term in the formula to 10e-9 in order to set the frequency correctly. Please note that in this version the sweep functionality does not work as it will require a start and stop delta phase that are different.

I created some arbitrary waveforms using PicoScope and ran them through the example sending the AWG wave to another PicoScope device. One AWG file is attached as an example.

Example Sine wave AWG file.

Hope this helps.
