The waveform settings section of the function generator soft front panel provides three waveform types to choose from, and provides frequency, amplitude, DC offset, duty cycle, and modulation type adjustments.
The three waveform types can be selected by clicking on the icons for the sign wave, triangle wave, or square wave. The frequency, amplitude, and DC offset of the signal can be changed by moving the corresponding control knob, or by directly inputting the desired value into the control below the control knob. The duty cycle adjustment is only available for the square wave output, and will be grayed out if the sign or triangle waveform types are selected. The modulation type control allows for the selection of frequency or amplitude modulation, but is unavailable with the NI myDAQ. To change the modulation type, an NI ELVIS system must be used.
