Making of Dual-tone-multi-frequency (DTMF) Generator by Using “Lab view software” (Part 1)

Making a Front Look "Front Panel" of DTMF Generator:


First of all I open the Lab View project by selecting speedy 33 kit and choosing the front panel. In the front window of software I insert 12 “ok Buttons” by clicking on the Boolean>> OK Button and placed the buttons on the front panel as shown in the above fig, I also insert one Graph for showing the result of the wave of the signals. I labeled the buttons from "0 to 9" include "* and #" buttons and arranged them in such a way that look like a mobile key pad as shown in the above print screen:

In the block window first of all I insert two "sine" signal signs from Functions>>Embedded Signals Generation palette.

Then I add the outputs of the two simulate signals by inserting adder from Functions>>Mathematics by wiring and the result came out from the adder I wired that to the final Audio Output AO0 as shown under diagram. With this result I also connect the Waveform Graph to show the signal.

For giving frequency to these two signals I insert the two Index array from the array sub palette and connect their output to the frequency pins of the simulate signal respectively.

To adding array constant I right clicked on the both Index array and add constant to them. While in the upper array I used the low frequency lists of the buttons and in the lower array I add the high frequency list. For the non-case, I also add 0, 0 to the Index array.

I used the following frequencies in the Index array:


I also gave the constant value of 10000 to the amplitudes of both signals

                 The second part of the this task will be in the next article. Its so important task while using a Lab view software to make a duel tune multi frequency like a mobile key pad works on this concept. Every key of the mobile key pad operates in between lower and higher frequencies. And note it that when you press a mobile key then every key has different tune from each other because each of them operate on a unique frequency.
