hi .
As the manual says, the signalgenerator could use for dataacqusition.But no more words.
How to use signal generator for data acqusition? And is there any manual or eample?

Sorry for the delay.
Where did you find those words in User's Manual?

SignalGenerator” as SignalTools component could not be used for data acquisition. It is for generating signal.

SignalTools contains several components, which includes: SignalReader - generates real-time data stream reading signal files in different formats: WAV (PCM), sid (biosignal file), ssd (LightningChart Ultimate Demo application sample data format). The playback can be automatically restarted with looping option; AudioInput - Reads real-time sampled data stream from sound card line-in (using e.g. microphone) through DirectSound. The data can be forwarded to chart, AudioOutput or your own data target; SignalGenerator - SignalGenerator is a multi-functional signal generator component. It allows combining different waveform types into single, real-time output signal. The waveform components can be set with a built-in user interface or by code; SpectrumCalculator - Converts data between time domain and frequency domain using Fast Fourier transform (FFT) algorithm. Optimal for calculating FFT conversion and power spectrum of sampled signal data; AudioOutput - Allows real-time data stream playback via sound card line-out (using e.g. speakers) through DirectSound.

All the best.
