Short Name: Start Phase

Property of niFgen

Controls horizontal offset of the standard waveform the signal generator produces. Specify this property in degrees of one waveform cycle.

A start phase of 180 degrees means output generation begins halfway through the waveform. A start phase of 360 degrees offsets the output by an entire waveform cycle, which is identical to a start phase of 0 degrees.

Units: Degrees of one cycle

Default Value: None

Note   This property does not affect signal generator behavior when you set the Waveform property to NIFGEN_VAL_WFM_DC.
