My question is very basic. I want to create an artificial noisy signal that for example looks like this link.
This signal should simulate noise due to temperature and due to the environment such as a light source etc.
Now let's say I want the average of this signal to be 20 uV (or 200 nA). I want to give the maximum random amplitude to be no more than 200 uV ( or 2000 nA).
For the time (or sampling) I do not know but I like it to look like the link above and preferably I can change it as a user.
Would you please give me some suggestions how to do this? (or if this is super easy to do, do it for me in Labview)
I have 2015 version.
Thank you. Would you explain more especially about he clipping? I do not have Electrical Eng background.
Let's say my theoretical signal is a constant dc analog voltage and the value is 20uV. How should I represent it in Labview and how to add the Gaussian of the same size noise to it?
Yes, I have used graph and chart. It has been a long time I have not used labview. I just do simple things like connecting it to DAQ system and get the signal from a sensor.
Is there any similar example or tutorial for this that I can follow it?
Gaussian noise has an infinite range and can go from ~-inf to ~+inf (with infinitely low probability). So if you simulate a signal from an a/d converter, all incoming signals outside the configured range will stick to the max or min of the range.
It is still not clear what you mean by "simulate". Do you just want to generate N points for further processing or do you want to simulate a continuous generation, one point at a time?
I want both. I want to get a continuous generation to show it in a graph in LabVIEW until I press stop. Then I want to be able to get a part (or the whole) of that generated data points or at least the last view of the graph preferably exported to excel file.
