Signal Generator Afterburner

Abstract

For a measurement device producer, we developed an extremely flexible signal generator during a previous project. After seeing the power and possibilities offered by FPGA technology, the customer came to us with further ideas to make the generator even more adaptable.

The features to be added to the existing system are best described by complex cyclical signal repetition and measurement of the wobble frequency of the generated signals.

Thanks to the modular VHDL code and the already existing unit and top-level regression tests, it was fairly simple to integrate the additional functionality and deliver a reliable system with stunning new features.
