4-Channel AWFG Function generator interface
The DNx-AO-364 are 4-channel function generator/Arbitrary Waveform Generator (AWFG) boards for use in UEI’s popular Cube/RACKtangle chassis, respectively. Standard sine, square and triangle waveforms at up to 150 kHz are provided or the user may create a custom waveform by taking advantage of the boards’ AWFG capabilities. Each channel’s output may be set independently of the others or may be slaved to any other channel taking advantage of the programmable phase shift functionality.
The DNx-AO-364 provides high resolution in both its frequency output as well as voltage output settings. Output Frequency may be set from 1 mHz to 150 kHz with 0.25 Hz resolution and ±1.0 Hz overall accuracy. Output voltages may be set from 0 to 8.45 Vrms with 16-bit resolution. Output DC offset may be set between ±12.0 VDC, also with 16-bit resolution. Note that total output voltage selected including output voltage and offset may not exceed ±12.0 VDC. The outputs may be enabled or disabled under software control with output impedances of <1 Ohm or >150 kOhm respectively.
Software included with the board provides a comprehensive yet easy to use API that supports all popular Windows programming languages as well as supporting programmers using Linux and most real-time operating systems including QNX, INtime, RT Linux, VXWorks and more. Finally, the UEIDAQ Framework supplies complete support for those creating applications in data acquisition software packages such as LabVIEW, MATLAB/Simulink, or any application which supports ActiveX or OPC servers.
