How to generate a signal by using the ps3000aSetSigGenBuiltI

Post by lili » Mon Jan 13, 2014 10:19 pm

Hello..

I'm trying to generate a DC signal from the 3404A. But whenever I start to run the code, the labview will automatically shut off. Could you please help???
The following is the code. Also, where is the terminal to view the output signal??

Thanks alot!

Hi Li,

I have fixed your vi, please download it and make sure the libraries attached correctly

The corrections that I made was:

When taking data from the front panel make sure that the data type matches to the function data types

Corrected one data type in the function 'setsimpletrigger'

Please note that I set wavetype as 3 this means the DC voltage, if you selected it using your drop down it would be 0 which is a sine wave.

Also pktopk and offset are both in uV NOT mV.

To get a 1V dc signal set the offset to 1000000,
the startfreq to 1000
and stopfreq to 1000

and leave the others.
