Wavetable Synthesizer

Generate periodic signal from single-cycle waveforms

  • Library:
  • Audio Toolbox / Sources

Description

The Wavetable Synthesizer block generates a periodic signal with tunable parameters. The periodic signal is defined by a single-cycle waveform cached as the Single-cycle waveform parameter of your Wavetable Synthesizer block.

The Wavetable Synthesizer block enables you to output a repeated single-cycle waveform while tuning aspects of the single-cycle waveform, such as frequency, amplitude, and offset.

Parameters

expand all

If a parameter is listed as tunable, then you can change its value during simulation.

The Wavetable Synthesizer block indexes into the single-cycle waveform to synthesize a periodic wave.

To specify Single-cycle waveform from an input port, select Specify wavetable from input port for the parameter.

Tunable: Yes

The number of times the single-cycle waveform is repeated in one second.

To specify Output wave frequency (Hz) from an input port, select Specify frequency from input port for the parameter.

Tunable: Yes

Amplitude scaling is applied before DC offset.

To specify Output wave amplitude from an input port, select Specify amplitude from input port for the parameter.

Tunable: Yes

The phase offset range, [0,1], corresponds to a normalized 2π radians interval.

To specify Output wave DC offset from an input port, select Specify DC offset from input port for the parameter.

Tunable: Yes

  • Code generation – Simulate the model using generated C code. The first time you run a simulation, Simulink® generates C code for the block. The C code is reused for subsequent simulations, as long as the model does not change. This option requires additional startup time, but the speed of the subsequent simulations is comparable to Interpreted execution.

  • Interpreted execution – Simulate the model using the MATLAB® interpreter. This option reduces startup time and the simulation speed is comparable to Code generation. In this mode, you can debug the source code of the block.
