Find the Right Analog Signal Generator - National Instruments

Analog output instruments provide static or dynamic multichannel analog output signals. They enable you to create applications such as stimulus-response, power supply control, deterministic control, and sensor/signal simulation. Analog Output Devices offer various output resolutions, channel counts, and other onboard features, so you can replace several kinds of instruments in your system, including stand-alone proportional integral derivative (PID) controllers, low-speed arbitrary waveform generators, and function generators. Basic, DAC-based analog output devices should generally only be used for low-speed waveform and static generation applications.

MATsolutions' insight:

Analog signal generators can be used for an almost countless number of test and measurement applications, from sensor simulation and stimulation to signal input simulation in electrical functional test to RF communication signals. Learn about some of the options for analog signal generation and choose the right instrument for your application.
