The Exponential Chirp component generates a sine wave signal at the output, . Its equation is
where is the instantaneous frequency,
and is the exponential rate of change of frequency with respect to time,
The instantaneous frequency of the generated sine wave varies exponentially from at time to at time
For example, if , , and , then the frequency will be 1Hz at time , 10Hz at time , 100Hz at time , and 1000Hz at time .
