    iterSquareWave

    NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

    Create an iterator which generates a square wave.

    A square waveform is represented by the following equation

    Equation for a square waveform.

    where τ is the period, a is the amplitude, and φ is the phase offset.

    Installation

    npm install @stdlib/simulate-iter-square-wave

    Usage

    var iterSquareWave = require( '@stdlib/simulate-iter-square-wave' );

    iterSquareWave( [options] )

    Returns an iterator which generates a square wave.

    var it = iterSquareWave();
    // returns <Object>
    
    var v = it.next().value;
    // returns 1.0
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns 1.0
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns 1.0
    
    // ...

    The returned iterator protocol-compliant object has the following properties:

    • next: function which returns an iterator protocol-compliant object containing the next iterated value (if one exists) assigned to a value property and a done property having a boolean value indicating whether the iterator is finished.
    • return: function which closes an iterator and returns a single (optional) argument in an iterator protocol-compliant object.

    The function supports the following options:

    • period: period (i.e., the number of iterations before a square wave repeats). This must be an even integer in order to ensure a 50% duty cycle. Default: 10.
    • min: minimum amplitude. Default: -1.0.
    • max: maximum amplitude. Default: 1.0.
    • offset: phase offset (in units of iterations; zero-based). A negative offset translates a waveform to the left. A positive offset translates a waveform to the right. Default: 0.
    • iter: number of iterations. Default: 1e308.

    By default, the function returns an iterator which generates a square wave that repeats every 10 iterations. To specify an alternative period, set the period option.

    var opts = {
        'period': 4
    };
    
    var it = iterSquareWave( opts );
    // returns <Object>
    
    var v = it.next().value;
    // returns 1.0
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns 1.0
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns -1.0
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns -1.0
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns 1.0
    
    // ...

    To adjust at what point the iterator begins in the waveform cycle, set the phase offset option. For example, to translate the waveform to the left,

    var opts = {
        'period': 6,
        'offset': -2
    };
    
    var it = iterSquareWave( opts );
    // returns <Object>
    
    var v = it.next().value;
    // returns 1.0
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns -1.0
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns -1.0
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns -1.0
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns 1.0
    
    // ...

    To translate the waveform to the right,

    var opts = {
        'period': 6,
        'offset': 2
    };
    
    var it = iterSquareWave( opts );
    // returns <Object>
    
    var v = it.next().value;
    // returns -1.0
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns -1.0
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns 1.0
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns 1.0
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns 1.0
    
    // ...

    By default, the function returns an infinite iterator (i.e., an iterator which never ends). To limit the number of iterations, set the iter option.

    var opts = {
        'iter': 2
    };
    var it = iterSquareWave( opts );
    // returns <Object>
    
    var v = it.next().value;
    // returns 1.0
    
    v = it.next().value;
    // returns 1.0
    
    var bool = it.next().done;
    // returns true

    Notes

    • If an environment supports Symbol.iterator, the returned iterator is iterable.

    Examples

    var iterSquareWave = require( '@stdlib/simulate-iter-square-wave' );
    
    // Create an iterator:
    var opts = {
        'period': 10,
        'min': -10.0,
        'max': 10.0,
        'offset': -5,
        'iter': 100
    };
    var it = iterSquareWave( opts );
    
    // Perform manual iteration...
    var v;
    while ( true ) {
        v = it.next();
        if ( v.done ) {
            break;
        }
        console.log( v.value );
    }
