Floppy Disk Control of the I/Q Modulation Generator R&S®AMIQ

The I/Q Modulation Generator AMIQ is best controlled by the software package WinIQSIM™. However, for some applications it is necessary to control the AMIQ via a floppy disk. The application note introduces a convenient and easy to use solution for creating a control floppy disk. A detailed description of the process to generate a waveform to fit on a 1.44 MB floppy disk, and how to transfer the waveform to the AMIQ and trigger the waveform from the floppy disk is provided.
