Version 2.2.4 – Aug 2014
  • Change the calculation of modulated signal gaps to be exact rather than in cycles of the carrier frequency.
  • Ensure the start of the next pulse starts “on” to avoid a half cycle delay.
  • Ensure the number of transitions in the modulation “on” period is odd, so it ends when it deasserts.
Version 2.1.2 – May 2013
