DSP Python Tools

DSP Python Tools is a set of scripts written in Python to generate sinusoidal waveforms, the waveforms can be exported as CSV files or *.wav files.

Waveforms available are sine, square, sawtooth, noise and triangle, and the python methods can also be used to calculate the mean and a histogram.

The waveforms are generated using floating point and can be sampled and quantised, the sample can be set to the required number of bits per sample.

A set of example scripts are provided which output CSV files, which can be plotted easily using Gnuplot and *.wav files.

The code can be downloaded from BitBucket and used as follows:

git clone https://bitbucket.org/akeane_chx/dsp.git
cd dsp/examples/waveform
dsp/examples/waveform$ ./05_sawtooth.py > plot.out
dsp/examples/waveform$ gnuplot
