Intimidating name generator
This relationship to the amplitude only applies to sine waves.
Another measure used for the amplitude is the peak-to-peak voltage DDS function generators may have the ability to let the user set the amplitude using the peak-to-peak voltage or the RMS voltage.
Two of the common waveforms generated by function generators are the sine and square waves.
A graph of a sine wave is shown: The mathematical representation of the sine wave is where A is the amplitude in volts, t is time in seconds (the horizontal axis), V is the vertical axis in volts, and f is the frequency of the sine wave in Hz.
is the phase of the sine wave (in the graph, the sine wave is shown with a phase of 0).
