This sample program downloads a predefine signal into the 33220A/33250A and to output it.

You can modify parameters like the number of points, the time span or the signal and noise amplitudes.

Note that keeping a low number of points is better for the demonstration (NumPoints<1940).

A display have been added to allow you to visualize the signal sent, but the best is to connect the 33220A/33250A output to an oscilloscope.


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.
