easy Sine wave output from analog Phidget #1002

Postby lamboom » Wed Oct 17, 2012 6:48 pm

Looking for the simplest language to drive the #1002 analog Phidget to make good sine waves from 0.2 to 3 Hz ... then later, would like to create random sine waves (a summation of many waves to produce a random smoothly changing voltage output)

Also, Please recommend a language that could use math expressions to control the 1002 (MatLab may be outside my budget .. sigh)
Thanks...

Any language can do it, it just depends on what you are comfortable using. What languages do you have experience with?

Hi Brian
There's the problem .. I was real good with Fortran .. really good! .. But, that was then :-)

I can't afford MATLAB or LabVIEW .. it has to run on windows XP .. perhaps, I could hire a friend who is versatile with the language I chose .. there appears to be many users working phidgets using Python, C#, C++ .. Visual Basic...

I will need to create a window where i can input values to define the frequency and amplitude of the sine waves, and a start and stop button. (perhaps a ramping function, so the sine wave builds gently) That's about it .. for now.

I'm not totally dim.. I'm willing to learn the basics, and have a degree in engineering .. I just haven't programed anything in many-many years (there's so much out there now that just works out of the box .. software included)

Sooo... what I'm looking for is a language recommendation for "easy learning" and functionality for my project.

Thanks much, regards .. Michael
