Hello,

 

I would like to simulate a pulse train with maximum 2.5 micro second width. Can I control the amplitude of the pulse?

 

I have tried and did a pulse with 10 micro seconds and ampiltude of 1V, I would like it to be 1.5V ish.

 

Please help me, I'm currently using Python.

I would like to simulate a pulse train with maximum 2.5 micro second width.

So you would like 2.5us positive pulses.  What frequency?  How many pulses ... or do you just want to start/stop continuous pulses through software commands?

 

General related information in the Waveform Generation App Note:

If you need variable amplitude, you can use the DAC, but that would not work for your quick times.  For your quick times, you would create a 0/3.3V waveform on a digital output, and use that waveform to control a switch of some sort that is gating the variable voltage from a DAC.
