When your application is configured for Single trigger mode, only one Start trigger is required to begin waveform generation. All Start triggers after the first Start trigger are ignored. Once the waveform generation is complete, the analog output indefinitely settles at the DC value of the last sample in the waveform. The following table provides more information about waveform generation behavior in Arbitrary Waveform, Arbitrary Sequence, and Frequency List output modes.
|Output Mode||Trigger Behavior|
|Arbitrary Waveform Mode||The waveform you downloaded generates only
once and waveform generation halts, unless the
Arbitrary Waveform Repeat Count property or the
attribute is set, in which case the waveform generates the
specified number of times.
|Arbitrary Sequence Mode||The waveform pattern you define in the
sequence list generates only once. When a Start trigger is
received, generation begins at the first segment and continues
through the last segment, after which the waveform generation
You can determine the DC value at
which waveform generation ends by configuring the last point in the
final segment as the desired DC value, or you can add an extra
segment filled with the same DC value.
|Frequency List Mode||The device generates each step in the active
frequency list sequentially.
