WaveForms™ provides an interface that allows users to interact with Digilent Analog Design hardware, such as the Analog Discovery™ and Electronics Explorer™. While the WaveForms application offers a refined graphical interface, the WaveForms SDK provides access to a public application programming interface (API) that gives users the ability to create custom PC applications.

This WaveForms SDK manual describes the main components and architecture of the WaveForms system and details each function contained in the WaveForms API. The SDK package also offers examples demonstrating how to identify, connect to, and control analog hardware devices. The WaveForms software, as well as the SDK, can be downloaded for free at the Digilent website.

  • This sample project demonstrates some basic features of the Digilent Electronics Explorer Board. Using just a resistor and an LED, the project introduces the Static I/O and Digital Pattern Generator instruments in the WaveForms software. To keep the project simple for new users, only a few features of the software are used. PDF
