I’m trying to make a (dynamic) swept sine generator to test an analog filter response. I’d like to stop DMA, load in a new frequency table, and restart DMA using the new (updated) table. Initially I’ll use + and – from the console to control the frequency, but later I will make a linear sweep.
Following up on this thread. I have modified MartinL2’s code to perform either a chirp or or a swept sine wave with “constant power” per frequency. The former is easier to see on a scope, but does not have constant power per frequency. This is true because each frequency (single cycle of a sine wave) is shorter and shorter as the frequency increases. If one observes this on an FFT, one sees the power per bin decreases as the frequency increases. The constant power mode emits a frequency for a unit time before changing. In this way the power as observed by an FFT should be constant. This mode is useful for characterizing filter frequency responses.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
