Difference between function generator and signal generator?
A signal generator is one which generates only sine wave and function generator generates all types of signals like square, rectangular, pulse, triangular, ramp.
A signal generator provides a high-fidelity sine wave signal ranging from low frequencies to many GHz. Attenuation, modulation, and sweeping are typical features of a signal generator. A function generator is a lower-frequency instrument that typically provides sine, square, pulse, triangle and ramp waveforms. Function generators provide these standard functions from DC to a few MHz, and provide large voltage ranges.
What is the difference between a floating output signal generator and a grounded output signal generator?
A signal generator can be used to function in two ways. In high frequencies, one of output probes of any generator (negative probe) will be grounded automatically, hence it has to be connected with grounded parts of other elements not to create a short circuit problem. But, in the case of floating type (f<100 Hz, generally) probes of the signal generator is not grounded.
Audio generator will produce some range of frequency and level of a test signal meant for audio. A signal generator will produce a test signal but is a more general classification. For example a audio generator is a signal generator. When you know what type of signal you are looking for, then a signal generator will be called that type of signal. all depends on what you are testing. examples: video -> video signal generator… Read More

After powering on the function generator, the output signal needs to be configured to the desired shape. Typically, this means connecting the signal and ground leads to an oscilloscope to check the controls. Adjust the function generator until the output signal is correct, then attach the signal and ground leads from the function generator to the input and ground of the device under test. For some applications, the negative lead of the function generator should… Read More
if a signal is a function of single independent variable,then signal is called multichannel signal. if a signal is function of multiple independent variable then signal is called multidimensional signal.
Oscilloscope is used to display electrical signals on a display. A dual trace oscilloscope can display two signals simultaneously. For a trace generator I think you mean a signal or a function generator which generates electrical waveforms of varying shapes, frequency and amplitude. A dual trace or a function generator in that sense is an equipment capable of generating two independent waveforms at the same time. - Neeraj
Function generator can better be called as signal generator.It produces different types of signal like sine, saw tooth, triangular, pulse wave forms etc... can be produced.For testing any circuits which input must be a wave form like oscillator circuits function generator is used.
A Re generator is a a circuit that repeatedly supplies current to a memory or display device. A amplifier increases the amperage of a signal or current.
In packet networking, a re-generator takes the existing radio signal and boosts it whereas a repeater interprets the data and re-sends it.
A signal generator generates either audio or RF frequencies (depending on the capabilities and designed purpose of the generator) for testing other electronics equipment. Makes it easier to make tests on a device without having to have it "in circuit". It's a lot easier to test a piece of equipment on a work bench rather than trying to test it in place. A function generator supplies TTL (transistor to transistor) square wave pulses, sine and… Read More
Signal generators, also known variously as function generators, RF and microwave signal generators, pitch generators, arbitrary waveform generators, digital pattern generators or frequency generators, are electronic devices that generate repeating or non-repeating electronic signals (in either the analog or digital domains). They are generally used in designing, testing, troubleshooting, and repairing electronic or electroacoustic devices; though they often have artistic uses as well. A function generator is a signal source that has the capability of… Read More
clock is consider every signal time duration (on time and off time period) are must be constant. pluse is consider on time or off time period are same time period or it varies.
The main difference between the tow is the signal. VGA uses an analog signal and DVI is a digital signal.
it is used to select the type of input we want to give to any of our ckt's.... Input's such as sine, square, triangular, pulse etc....
You would use a Frequency Generator to generate tones. They can also be refered to as a Function Generator or Signal Generator. Check out this page on wiki for more information. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Signal_generator
The dual-beam analog oscilloscope can display two signal simultaneously, that is dual beam CRT generator and deflects two separate beams.
processing is nothing
To transmit a signal between neurons.
wave is a part of a signal . millions of wave construct a signal .
if the speedometer works off of an input wave (sinusoidal signal) you would think the signal generator would be a source of reference
SINR - Signal to Interference and Noise Ratio CINR - Carrier to Interference and Noise Ratio difference between those to is difference between carrier and signal carrier is signal who doesn't "carry" any information . it must be modulated( by phase,freq or amplitude) and those changes convey information. carrier is unmodulated signal signal is defined as useful signal which carries information SINR is power of signal to power of interfenence and noise ratio
It depends on the frequency range of the signal generator. Obviously, you won't hear radio waves.
The basic difference is that in analog modulation the modulating signal is analog signal and in digital modulation it is in digital form.
the difference between both are: Primary transducer:The Mechanical device which converts physical quantity to be measured into a mechanical signal. Secondary tranducer:The Electrical device which converts this mechanical signal to the electrical signal.
The main different between a traditional signal and a message is their recipient. A signal is often sent to a mass of people, while a message is more individualized.
Analog signal is continuos one where as digital is discrete (either HIGH or LOW).
The analogue signal are waves which are directly reproduced by the receiver. The digital signal needs a computer based device as the receiver because it is composed from data.
see computer chips are those chips which work on the electrical signals...they accept input coded signal and perform the function specified.....where as the biochips are those chips which understand the live fluctuations in body and convert them into desired electrical signal to be decoded.......
they're spelled differently..
The generator is producing electrical interference. If the generator is powering the satellite it might be the generator output is too 'dirty' (spikey or distorted output) or the generator is on it's minimum, or maximum, load limit. The main causes of random interference from a generator are the covers being left off or open and bad earthing. Where possible run power leads perpendicular to signal leads. Where it is not possible make sure there is… Read More

ASk is done for digital signal , AM is for analog signal .
The difference between frequency modulation and phase modulation is that with frequency modulation the angular frequency of the signal is modified while with the phase modulation, the phase angle of the signal is modified.

Every digital signal is a discrete signal. However, when a discrete signal can take only a finite number of distinct values then we call it digital.

The clock signal in a microprocessor allows synchronization of several components of the microprocessor. The correctness of the computation of the microprocessor depends upon efficient and balanced distribution of the clock signal. The clock generator generates the clock signal.
Function generators fall into two basic categories, analogue and digital. Analogue generators use a voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) to generate a triangular waveform of variable frequency. Sinusoidal waveforms and square waves are generated from this. Digital generators use a digital to analogue converter (DAC) to generate a wave shape from values stored in memory. Normally such generators only offer sine and square waves up to the maximum generator frequency. Triangle waves and other waveforms are… Read More
