Initiates signal generation, causing the NI-RFSG device to leave the Configuration state or Committed state and enter the Generation state. If settings have not been committed to the device before you use this VI, they are committed by this VI. The operation returns when the RF output signal settles. To return to the Configuration state, use the niRFSG Abort VI.
