How to Add DC Offsets to a Function Generator's Output

Application Notes

A variety of electronic test applications require a DC offset to be added to the output of a function generator. The result is a signal that is a waveform superimposed on top of a DC voltage. For example, you can use a sine wave added on top of a DC bias voltage for testing a circuit’s immunity to noise that can appear on its real bias voltages. For amplifi er testing, you can bias a transistor with DC that has an AC component riding on top of it. Even a repetitive series of unipolar pulses, used for driving a FET gate signal for DC/DC converters, can be thought of as a pulse train with a DC offset. All of these applications need a DC plus AC signal, all with different voltage, current, and waveform bandwidth requirements.
