2414B Sequencing Application Note/s?

I am able to generate sequences, but there is an unwanted dead spot between loops, are there any app notes on this subject?

Hi Bill,

The Y values of the starting and ending points in your waveform can cause unexpected discontinuities if they are not the same value. The waveform generator output will jump from the ending value to the starting value each cycle. If you are using the sequence generator in an arbitrary waveform generator, the ending value of a waveform will jump to the starting value of the next waveform in the sequence. For a smooth, transient-free waveform output, be sure the starting and ending values are the same for a single waveform and the starting and ending values of adjacent waveforms are the same for a sequenced waveform.
