Vision - Signal Generator

Component Palette Icon:

Description

The signal generator is similar to the Timer component, but its value isn't simply a counter. Instead, you can choose from a variety of familiar signals. You configure the frequency by setting the Period property, which is in milliseconds. You configure the resolution by setting the ValuesPerPeriod property.

For example, if you choose a sine wave signal with a period of 2000 milliseconds and 10 valuesPerPeriod, your sine wave will have a frequency of 0.5 Hz, and its value will change 10 times every 2 seconds.
