In this experiment the relationship between time- and frequency domain of different signals is examined.

You can choose from a variety of source signals. For example, let's select a rectangular waveform with 1mV amplitude and a frequency of 1kHz.

The selected signal can be viewed in the oscilloscope (time domain) and spectrum analyzer (frequency domain).

Can you consider which spectrum a triangle shaped source signal generates?

Let's see.
