Direct I/O: Download Waveform and Save to Excel Read Me

This sample program downloads a waveform to the arbitrary waveform generator.

Date: April 2005

Version: 1.0

Language: Agilent VEE Pro 7.5 (or later)

Instruments: Signal Generator

OS Requirements: Microsoft® Windows® 2000 or XP

Additional Software: Agilent IO Libraries Suite 14.0 (or later)

 

This sample program shows how a complex baseband signal can be mathematically constructed and then downloaded to the arbitrary waveform generator within the ESG-C/PSG vector signal generator.  In addition, the program also handles waveform scaling and quantizing so that it is in a suitable form for the DACs in the instrument.  It then goes on to show how the event marker can be used for synchronization with other instruments and shows how the AWG and signal generator should be configured.  On completion of signal download, the I and Q vectors are saved to an Excel file.

 

If you have installed VEE, you can open the sample program by double-clicking on it or by using VEE's File > Open or File > Open Example menu items. To utilize VEE's Instrument Manager's "Load Sample" capabilities with the sample program, copy the sample program and the .xml file (with the same name as the VEE sample program) into the following directory:
