Generates a signal containing a ramp pattern of samples.
Type of ramp to generate.
Name | Value | Description |
---|---|---|
Linear | 0 | Uses the linear type. |
Logarithmic | 1 | Uses the logarithmic type. |
Default: Linear
First value of the ramp. This node does not impose conditions on the relationship between start and end. Therefore, this node can generate ramp-up and ramp-down patterns.
Default: 0
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.
Default: No error
Sampling rate in samples per second.
This input is available only if you configure this node to return a waveform.
Default: 0.1
Number of samples in the pattern.
samples must be greater than 0. Otherwise, this node returns an error.
Default: 128
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.
Output ramp pattern.
This output can return a waveform or an array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.
Error information.
The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Let the sequence X represent ramp pattern. If type is Linear, the node generates the pattern according to the following equation:
for i = 0, 1, 2, …, n - 1
