    Hey guys,
    Does anyone know a good software that I can install/download to create a sine wave? (if so, more than one sine wave on the same graph)

    The first sine wave i want on my graph includes the following data:
    Period (x axis): 0.4ms
    Gain (y axis): ±1V
    ...
    The second sine wave I want on the same graph includes the following data:
    Period (x axis): 0.4ms
    Gain (y axis): ±6.25V

    There must be a software out there to do that. I have looked on google for like an hour, but dont know if it is my terrible searching or that there is none! (but im sure there is one)

    So can someone please advise me on a suitable software to create sine waves with the data I have listed above?

    Thanks in advance
    Dan

    You can create a sine wave using the formula:

    y = A sin(2πft)

    For something as basic as that you could use VBA from within Microsoft Office products (like Excel)

    Free products:

    Eigen Math
    MiscEl (lots of electronics helpers, but also has graphing calculator)
    Processing (What the Arduino IDE is based on, has examples)
    Microsoft Math (free now)

    Not free:
    MathCAD
    Matlab
    Microsoft Office (Excel)

    Libre Office, Neo Office amongst others have the equivalent of Excel which is good to calculate and show in a graphic that function.
