Linkwitz Cosine Burst Generator
With a conventional tone burst generator, a considerable number of harmonics are generated. These extend to sub-audible frequencies, and excite resonances that have nothing to do with the actual test frequency. By gradually increasing the amplitude of each cycle of the test waveform, then decreasing it again using a cosine waveform envelope, these unwanted harmonics are minimised.
