Wave Generator (Configurable) (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: March 15, 2017

    Generates a signal containing a sine, square, sawtooth, or triangle wave, based on the input.

    datatype_icon

    signal type

    Type of signal to generate.

    Name Value Description
    Sine Wave 0 Generates a signal containing a sine wave.
    Triangle Wave 1 Generates a signal containing a triangle wave.
    Square Wave 2 Generates a signal containing a square wave.
    Sawtooth Wave 3 Generates a signal containing a sawtooth wave.

    Default: Sine Wave

    datatype_icon

    offset

    DC offset of the signal.

    Default: 0

    datatype_icon

    reset phase

    A Boolean that determines the initial phase of the wave.

    True

    Sets the initial phase to phase in and sets the initial time to t0 if you configure this node to return a waveform.

    Sets the initial phase to phase in if you configure this node to return a double-precision, floating-point number or an array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

    False

    Uses the values of phase out and t0 from when the node last executed as the initial phase and time of the wave if you configure this node to return a waveform.

    Uses the values of phase out from when the node last executed as the initial phase of the wave if you configure this node to return a double-precision, floating-point number or an array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

    Default: False

    datatype_icon

    amplitude

    Amplitude of the signal. The amplitude is also the peak voltage.

    Default: 1

    datatype_icon

    frequency

    Frequency of the signal in Hz.

    Default: 10

    datatype_icon

    phase in

    Initial phase, in degrees, of the signal.

    This node ignores phase in if reset phase is False.

    Default: 0

    datatype_icon

    square wave duty cycle

    Percentage of time a square wave remains high versus low over one period.

    square wave duty cycle is valid only if signal type is Square Wave.

    Default: 50

    datatype_icon

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

    The node responds to this input 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.

    Default: No error

    datatype_icon

    sample rate

    Sampling rate in samples per second.

    Default: 1000

    datatype_icon

    samples

    Number of samples in the signal.

    This input is available only if you configure this node to return a waveform or an array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

    Default: 1000

    datatype_icon

    t0

    Timestamp of the output signal. If this input is unwired, this node uses the current time as the timestamp of the output signal.

    This input is available only if you configure this node to return a waveform.

    datatype_icon

    signal

    Output signal.

    This output can return the following data types:

    • Waveform
    • Double-precision, floating-point number
    • 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers
    datatype_icon

    phase out

    Phase of the signal in degrees.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
