Custom waveforms using EasyWave and CSV Templates

October 23, 2017

Arbitrary waveform generators (AWGs) are programmable voltage sources. They can be extremely useful tools when your application requires the output of waveforms that contain complicated features or shapes. Many AWGs come pre-loaded with arbitrary waveforms like cardiac, voice, and a host of trigonometric functions. These “built-in” waveforms can be useful, but the real power of … Continued

EasyPulse Technology

October 23, 2017

At present, the method used to generate pulse signals by most ARB/function generators is to fill the DDS waveform memory with the original pulse data. By editing the pulse waveform data table in advance, DDS can output the correct pulse waveform corresponding with the separate rising and falling edges. This kind of pulse waveform’s edge … Continued

Calibration Traceability

October 23, 2017

Excerpt from the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board: http://anab.org/news/newsletter/winter-2014/nist-traceability-statements NIST Traceability Statements Many calibration customers request on their accredited calibration certificates a statement that the measurement is traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). They want assurance that the standards used for the calibration are ultimately traceable to the International System of Units … Continued
