The implementation of a digital sine wave oscillator using the TMS320C25 digital signal processor (DSP) is described. The system is implemented with the Dalanco Spry model 25 DSP board, and a software system is designed whereby an IBM PC host computer provides control of the waveform generator functions and parameters. Waveforms are generated using the lookup-table (LUT) method. The methods of direct LUT and linear interpolation of missing samples are implemented and compared with a method that uses a trigonometric identity to reduce the harmonic distortion of the sine wave by effectively increasing the table length of the direct LUT method. The results of an experiment performed in the digital domain are presented without consideration of the problem of analog reconstruction. The oscillator can produce a sine wave without the nonuniform sampling distortion associated with fractional addressing, over the range of 7.2 Hz to 58.8 kHz, with a resolution of 7.2 Hz using 384 data words. The trigonometric identity method uses less data memory than other methods for the same distortion levels. Waveforms for the sum of two sine waves, a frequency swept sine wave, amplitude modulation (AM), and frequency modulation (FM) signals are shown as applications of the waveform generator
