This box generates a linear signal on a single channel. The box can be used in order to test some processings on a specific signal when no data is available. Each sample value of the generated signal exactly equals to time in second.


1. Generated signal

This output contains the generated signal.

  • Type identifier : Signal (0x5ba36127, 0x195feae1)


1. Sampling frequency

The first setting indicates the samling frequency of the produced signal in Hz.

  • Type identifier : Integer (0x007deef9, 0x2f3e95c6)
  • Default value : [ 512 ]

2. Generated epoch sample count

The last setting indicates how many sample will be sent for each output chunk.

  • Type identifier : Integer (0x007deef9, 0x2f3e95c6)
  • Default value : [ 32 ]


In order to illustrate this case, just drag'n drop a Signal display box on the scenario and connect its input to a sinus oscillator box. You will be able to see the generated signal.

For better use of this box, consider using an additional Simple DSP box. Put whatever function you like in this box configuration and visualize it with the Signal display.
