    Generates a signal containing a triangle pattern.

    connector_pane_image
    datatype_icon

    amplitude

    Amplitude of the pattern.

    Default: 1

    datatype_icon

    delay

    Shifts the pattern in the time axis.

    Default: 0

    datatype_icon

    asymmetry

    Asymmetric character of the pattern. This input is the projection of the line segment between the start and the peak divided by the width of the pattern.

    Algorithm Definition

    The following illustration shows the definition of asymmetry. D is the projection of B on AC.

    asymmetry = | A D | | A C |

    Default: 0.5

    datatype_icon

    width

    Width of the pattern. This input must be greater than zero.

    Default: 10

    datatype_icon

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs. The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Default: No error

    datatype_icon

    dt

    Sampling interval. This input must be greater than zero. If this input is less than or equal to zero, this node sets the output pattern to an empty array and returns an error.

    Default: 0.1

    datatype_icon

    samples

    Number of samples in the pattern. This input must be greater than or equal to 0. If this input is less than zero, the node sets the output pattern to an empty array and returns an error.

    Default: 128

    datatype_icon

    triangle pattern

    Output triangle pattern.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information. The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    Algorithm for Generating the Triangle Pattern

    If the sequence Y represents triangle pattern, this node generates the pattern according to the following equations:

    y i = { a * x i w * k 0 x i w * k a * ( w x i ) w * ( 1 k ) w * k < x i < w 0 otherwise

    for i = 0 , 1 , 2 , ... , N 1 , 0 k 1

    where

    • w is the width
    • k is the asymmetry
    • a is the amplitude
    • x i = Δ t * i d , where d is the delay

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported
