Summary How to create a waveform and download it to the GX1110
WaveEasy can interface with the Geotest GX1110 Arbitrary Waveform Generator software front panel, allowing users to create waveforms using the powerful waveform editor and then downloading the wavefform into the GX1110 memory to generate the wave. The following steps described the process:

1. Create either a standard waveform, a complex mathematical function, or a free hand waveform within WaveEasy. Further information on using WaveEasy to create waveforms can be found in the GtWave Manual.

6. Now the waveform data has been loaded from WaveEasy to the GX1110. Make any changes to the set up of the GX1110 such as amplitutde, sample rate, etc. and click on Apply. Check the Output Enabled box to prepare for output.

7. Use the Run button to start generating the wave, and Stop button to suspend the waveform output:
