Oscilloscope and Sig Gen at the same time?

Postby ARC » Thu Jan 17, 2013 8:53 am

Hello,

Does anybody know if its possible to use the sig gen and oscilloscope functions at the same time.
Im not after changing and controlling both at the same time, i basically need a constant voltage that is controlling an amp, so 2v out of the sig gen, then collect oscilloscope readings at the same time, then the oscilloscope will stop and function generator can change.

At the moment i am closing the device inbetween these functions otherwise the communication fails.

Thanks for the help :)

Hi ARC,

You can call the function to output a signal from the generator before the call to start a block/streaming capture.

Once you've collected some data, you can then change the output of the signal generator.
