How to create a two channel coupled frequency sweep?

I want to create two outputs on both channels of my agilent 33522A function generator to synchronously sweep but at different frequencies.

example:
CH1
sine wave
start freq: 50Hz
stop freq: 200Hz

CH2
square wave
start freq: 4.15kHz
stop freq: 16.6kHz

I've tried using the sync output, but I'm unable to set the frequency coupling ratio. Is this possible?

Hi, Patrick,

I am not sure what you mean by synchronous sweeps when the sweeps are at different frequencies. I assume you mean start and stop the sweep at the same time.

This can be done by setting the sweep time to the same value then triggering the sweeps by pressing the Trigger button and setting a manual trigger for each channel.

Best Regards,
Cheryl
