    Howdy Folks,

    How would one set-up a HP33120A Function/Arbitrary Waveform Generator to output a (variable rate of rise) ramp to 5vdc which then holds at 5vdc steady state for 2 additional seconds before returning to zero?

    I have succeeded in generating a 0-5v ramp using our Agilent B1500A Semiconductor Device Analyzer (Curve Tracer). This picture of a ~5 second ramp was captured on PicoScope some minutes ago but my dilemma remains in that I was unable to program the steady state part...

    Suggestions please? ...and remember to K.I.S.S. because that's how we like it!

    T

    Page 103 of the generator manual describes how to program the generator for the waveform you want.
