triangle signal

Triangular signals are one-time or periodic harmonic signals with constant rising and falling slopes. If the rising signal slope corresponds to the falling signal slope, then the duty cycle

is 50 %. The period duration

is madeup of the rise and fall times. If the duty cycle is changed, the triangular signal becomes a sawtooth signal

with a rising or falling sawtooth function.

Triangular signal in time and frequency representation

Triangular signal in time and frequency representation

Triangular signals consist of the sinusoidal fundamental and even and odd sinusoidal harmonics. The amplitudes of the harmonics are in the ratio 1/nexp2, where "n" corresponds to the harmonic. For example, the amplitude of the 3rd harmonic is 1/3exp2, which is 1/9 of the fundamental, that of the 5 harmonics is 1/5exp2, which is 1/25 of the fundamental, and so on.
