General Description

The WaveDAC8 component provides a simple and fast solution for automatic periodic waveform generation. A high-level interface allows you to select a predefined waveform or a custom arbitrary waveform. Two separate waveforms can be defined then selected with an external pin to create a modulated output. The input clock can also be used to change the sample rate or modulate the output.
