The pattern generator instrument can be used to generate output from the M2K with user configurable parameters. It consists of 3 parts:
The buttons on top of the pattern generator are:
The plot shows a preview of the generated signals by the pattern generator. For the enabled channels, the generated waveform is shown. For channel groups (groups of one or more channels) a “decoder” is displayed and has the purpose to graphically represent the binary value of the channel group. The channel enumerator panel lists all available channels on the device, and allows the user to enable them.
The user can enable channels by clicking the blue checkbox button, setting the channel as an output. By double clicking the channel the channel settings for it will be shown In the channel settings the name, trace height are displayed. If the channel is part of a group, then the channels in the group are shown and can be removed by clicking the red X button or changed in order using the drag widget.

Click the group button (it becomes “done”) select all the channels you want to have in a group, then click the done button. The currently implemented patterns are:
