Back to MiscEl Waveforms page

This page is used to define different waveforms for the Waveforms page.
This page has no frequence, time or voltage specifications. The curve is scaled to the values specified on Waveforms page.

Curve generating functions

Use "Enable curves" to display any of the defined curves

Curve shaping functions (Transfer functions)

Use "Enable transfer functions" to use ONE of these functions at a time.
CAVEAT: the slider must be moved to the right for the transfer function to work

Input values

HarmonicThe frequence multiplier, only integer values can be specified
LevelAmplitude of this harmonic, must be a negative dB value (or use "todB(fraction)", to specify a fraction)
PhasePhase of this harmonic, value is in degrees and can be both positive and negative
CurveThe curve waveform to use for this harmonic, any other waveform than sinus will add more higher harmonics
Steps: TimeTime must be between 0 and 1, lowest values must be specified first
Steps: OutputThe value must be between 0 and 1
Steps: Smooth Apply a smoothing function to the generated curve, remember that first and last value are adjacent


Transfer functions

The specified "try" values can be used with a "Unity sinus" to show the effect of the transfer function. Using "Display sinus" makes it easy to compare with a clean sinus.
CAVEAT: the slider must be moved to the right for the transfer function to work

Display sinus

Displays a sinus curve on the graph, this curve is only for reference and not use in any calculations.
