Current Step GUI

This plugin allows you to deliver a series of current step commands.

Output Channels

  1. output(0) – “Iout” : Step current command in amperes. Connect to the amplifer external signal input.


  1. Period (s): period of step input
  2. Delay (s): delay between step commands
  3. Min Amp (pA): minimum amplitude
  4. Max Amp (pA): maximum amplitude
  5. Increments: number of steps to take between the minimum and maximum amplitude
  6. Cycles (#): number of times to repeat step command
  7. Duty Cycle (%): portion of the period during which to apply current of specified amplitude
  8. Offset (pA): additional DC current to add
