CY360 Overview

The CY360 Intelligent Waveform Synthesizer is a standard 5-volt, 40-pin LSI device designed to provide flexible generation of sine waves, triangle waveforms, square waves, computed waveforms, and user-defined functions. The initiation and termination of these waves can be under external control or under the control of a program stored in the CY360 itself. The CY360 accepts ASCII or binary commands from a keyboard or computer through a parallel TTL interface that also enables simple RS232 and IEEE-488 interface designs. The CY360 drives standard 8-bit digital to analog (D/A) converters and includes a 16-bit operational mode.
