One of the projects which is coming up for me is designing a wireless charging option. I hope to simply plug the signal generator into my circuit in order to manipulate shape and frequency of the primary coil, so I can get a feel for how things work and for optimizing what type of signal/frequency my final circuit should have...

(I haven't really figured any of the details out though. I am very much a learning by doing type of person.)

I have a slight budget for this, thats why I thought I might as well buy something which lasts.

So yeah... still open for suggestions :-)
And I will google Textronix :-)

Cheers

Hello,

For my purposes I only need to switch from zero to 5 volts at a frequency of 100kHz.  I have tried this using the digitalWrite function and it works but it seems to be a bit inconsistent.  Is there a way to create a nice clean pattern with a 10us period (100kHz)?

Thanks!

Sorry, I'm a bit new to this, how do I use pulse counter/timer to create a 100kHz squarewave?

thanks

 I am not real sharp on the whole process.

 Here is another library example you could try that might be easier for you.
