IDSG101 Manual: How to Transform the Arbitrary Waveform Format (PART 1)

IDGS101 can manage and out put your arbitrary waveform files, so that you can simulate or reproduce the signals in your study and work. However, IDGS101 supports wvt file only, then how to generate this format files? In this article, we will show you two methods: one is to use Agilent waveform editor with harmonic wave creator; the other is to use Matlab.

Apparently, create an executable wvt waveform file is not so easy, you must be familiar with Agilent waveform editor and Matlab. If you are a beginner, the following two links will tell you how to start to use these two softwares.

Agilent waveform editor + Harmonic wave creator

Install these two software in your computer. For Agilent, you can find some free versions via google; for the latter Harmonic wave creator, download it from the link below:

http://wiki.iteadstudio.com/File:HW_creator_V1.1.zip

1. Open Agilent waveform editor, click File->Properties.

 

2. In the pop-up properties window, you should set the Points. Do remember that the points cannot be set beyond 32768. Then click Apply and OK. Now you can set up a new waveform by clicking File->New

3. Create and save a waveform. In this step, you should have some basic knowledge of creating waveform by using Agilent. Here, we just make a hand-draw waveform. 

4. Use Harmonic wave creator to transform the waveform file from csv to wvt. Open the software, click “open” to open the csv waveform file. Then you can set the waveform parameters including frequency, amplitude, DC offset etc.

5. Click “save” to save the waveform file in wvt format. Please note that the waveform’s name is no more than 8 characters.

6. Connect IDGS101 to your computer. Once the device accesses to PC, you need to press the "enter USB flash disk mode" button. Now you can put the wvt waveform file in the directory arb_wave

7. Exit the USB flash mode, and connect IDGS101 to oscilloscope. Choose the waveform file in the interface of Arbitrary, then the oscilloscope will show the waveform.

Using Matlab to generate wvt waveform file will be introduced in next PART 2.
