Pulsing an Arbitrary Waveform

Question asked by calder on May 31, 2019

I want to create a waveform for the agilent 33220a waveform generator. It is a 40us arbitrary wave that I have designed in the keysight waveform builder pro via the Benchvue software, however I want it to then wait 1 second at 0 V DC (or just off) before the same wave is pulsed. There are not enough sampling points available to do this in the same .wvf file, due to the high sampling rate needed for the 40us waveform.

Is there a way to do this with the 33220a, for example telling it to not send any signal for 1 second without requiring any samples, or by using a high sample rate for the first 40us and then a much lower rate for the 1 second period?
