In this workshop, we will look at direct-to-microwave, real-time shaped pulse generation, and measurement. We will examine how to generate dynamic waveforms with characteristics that change periodically based on measurement. Understanding the architecture of instrumentation and fundamentals, such as sampling rates, on-board memory, and analog bandwidth will be covered; however, this type of application often goes beyond signal generation and measurement. Computing requirements such as memory and processing speed, data transfer rates, and interface choices must also be considered.
