    bandwidth (0.0)

    Specifies the bandwidth of Automatic Level Control (ALC). Narrow bandwidth impoves noise and allows AM with modulation frequencies beyond bandwidth frequency. The value is coerced to reflect the ability of the current RF signal generator. The driver uses this value to set the IviRFSigGen>>ALC>>ALC Bandwidth property. Units: Hertz Default Value: 0.0

    source (Internal)

    Specifies the source of the controlling voltage for the Automatic Level Control. The RF level at the sensor point is held constant. The driver uses this value to set the IviRFSigGen>>ALC>>ALC Source property. Defined Values: IVIRFSIGGEN_VAL_ALC_SOURCE_INTERNAL - The ALC is controlled by an internal measurement source. IVIRFSIGGEN_VAL_ALC_SOURCE_EXTERNAL - The ALC is controlled by an external voltage. Default Value: IVIRFSIGGEN_VAL_ALC_SOURCE_INTERNAL

    instrument handle out

    The instrument handle that you obtain from the IviRFSigGen Initialize Node or IviRFSigGen Initialize With Options Node. The handle identifies a particular instrument session.

    Default: None

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    Standard Error Behavior

    Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

    error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
    If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

    If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

    error in

    The instrument handle that you obtain from the IviRFSigGen Initialize Node or IviRFSigGen Initialize With Options Node. The handle identifies a particular instrument session.

    Default: None

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows
