Yes, sadly this is true, Batman's signal light on top of Gotham city has been rendered inoperative by the Evil Plastic Man, Wayne Enterprises has been provided secret help from the labs at Element 14 who assure Bruce that the new Agilent 33622A Arbitrary Waveform Generator can save the day.

What are the requirements you may ask,

it must be invisible to the bad guys (And girls... You know who you are so they don't know Batman is coming to the rescue

It must be detectable by Bat sensors on the Bat network and human viewable if needed from across the room (Alfred is not as young as he used to be)

it must be able to work with the Bat network even if it is running slow due to Bat Processing

The receiver must look like regular lab equipment incase of discovery, giving Bruce plausible deniability

Over to Wayne Enterprises Secret lab....

Scientist 1.... how can we create such a signal, the previous solution was child's play, we cut out a silly bat in cardboard and put it on a honking big light... Done. I did not have to do any research or homework (Truth be known, I got my grand Daughter to cut it out for me, we where playing shadow puppets ) Shhhhh.

Scientist 3... We can use the new Agilent 33622A we have received from the base of Element 14, our secret benefactor and supplier of all things cool, it can send almost any signal we can dream of and all we need is a suitably complex formula for the Bat Signal, Batman has already reviewed its awesomeness and will be able to use it easily look here :-http://www.element14.com/community/roadTestReviews/1744

Scientist 2... I know, over to Boogle, the BAT search engine, it contains the sum knowledge of all man kind and some

wow, what's this

first hit. searching for "batman logo formula'... who needs kids when you can do it with a mathematical genius...the bad guys will never figure this out, its so nice the good folks of Gotham have nothing to worry about and find the time to post pretty formulas of their hero's

A few clicks later,,

Holy Math problems Batman, how can we send this over the Bat net... Oh no were going to have to think on this

The Formula (s) the Scientists agreed to implement where the following, all four of them are needed

**2*sqrt((‑abs(abs(x)-1))*abs(3-abs(x))/((abs(x)-1)*(3-abs(x))))*(1+abs(abs(x)-3)/(abs(x)-3))*sqrt(1-(x/7)^2)+(5+0.97*(abs(x-0.5)+abs(x+0.5))-3*(abs(x-0.75)+abs(x+0.75)))*(1+abs(1-abs(x))/(1-abs(x)))**

**(‑3)*sqrt(1-(x/7)^2)*sqrt(abs(abs(x)-4)/(abs(x)-4))**

**abs(x/2)-0.0913722*x^2-3+sqrt(1-(abs(abs(x)-2)-1)^2)3+sqrt1)^2)**

**(2.71052+1.5-0.5*abs(x)-1.35526*sqrt(4-(abs(x)-1)^2))*sqrt(abs(abs(x)-1)/(abs(x)-1))+0.9**

**(For full disclosure the Bat team found the formula Here :- https://www.google.ca/?gfe_rd=cr&ei=Lr1uU5KhJ8OC8QfrjoHgDA#aq=f&aqi=&aql=&gs_sm=3&gs_upl=1000l1000l0l1996l1l0l0l0l0l0l0l… )**

Scientist 2...I know, convert it to a square wave and send it with the amplitude and offset changing only, if the bad guys see it they will think its just test data... but how!!

Scientist 1... See Sharp

1/2 hr later... I cant find anyone called Sharp ?.. (Faint Slap is heard in the background)

C# silly, not See Sharp, even if you did find Sharp, he does not have the clearance for this

So a bit of programming later and we have some data..Yaaaaa

of course during the party that followed, someone thought it was a good idea to share back to the community the code they created (Its a good job bad guys don't bother researching, they get the good guys to do it for them and we can trust the good guys from team TM)

using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.ComponentModel; using System.Data; using System.Drawing; using System.Linq; using System.Text; using System.Threading.Tasks; using System.Windows.Forms; namespace WindowsFormsApplication4 { public partial class Form1 : Form { public Form1() { InitializeComponent(); } private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { const int count = 10000; const double minVal = -8; const double maxVal = 8; double increment = (Math.Abs(minVal) + Math.Abs(maxVal)) / count; richTextBox1.Clear(); richTextBox1.AppendText("File Format:1.10" + Environment.NewLine); richTextBox1.AppendText("Channel Count:1" + Environment.NewLine); richTextBox1.AppendText("Sample Rate:80000" + Environment.NewLine); richTextBox1.AppendText("High Level:1" + Environment.NewLine); richTextBox1.AppendText1" + Environment.NewLine); richTextBox1.AppendText("Filter:\"off\"" + Environment.NewLine); richTextBox1.AppendText("Data Points:" + count*2 + Environment.NewLine); richTextBox1.AppendText("Data:" + Environment.NewLine); double x = 0; int pVal = 0; int nVal = 0; int counter = 0; for (counter = 1 ; counter < count; counter++) { Math.Abs(minVal); double y1 = 2 * Math.Sqrt((-(Math.Abs(Math.Abs(x) - 1))) * Math.Abs(3 - Math.Abs(x)) / ((Math.Abs(x) - 1) * (3 - Math.Abs(x)))) * (1 + Math.Abs(Math.Abs(x) - 3) / (Math.Abs(x) - 3)) * Math.Sqrt(1 - Math.Pow((x / 7), 2)) + (5 + 0.97 * (Math.Abs(x - 0.5) + Math.Abs(x + 0.5)) - 3 * (Math.Abs(x - 0.75) + Math.Abs(x + 0.75))) * (1 + Math.Abs(1 - Math.Abs(x)) / (1 - Math.Abs(x))); 1.35526*Math.Sqrt1),2))))*Math.Sqrt1))+0.9; 3)*Math.SqrtMath.Pow((x/7),2))*Math.Sqrt4)); 3 + Math.Sqrt(1 - Math.Pow((Math.Abs(Math.Abs(x) - 2) - 1) , 2)); if (Double.IsNaN(y1)) y1 = 0; if (Double.IsNaN(y2)) y2 = 0; if (Double.IsNaN(y3)) y3 = 0; if (Double.IsNaN(y4)) y4 = 0; pVal = (int)((y1 + y4) * 4096); nVal = (int)((y2 + y3) * 4096); richTextBox1.AppendText(pVal + Environment.NewLine); richTextBox1.AppendText(nVal + Environment.NewLine); } // Write the string to a file. System.IO.StreamWriter file = new System.IO.StreamWriter(@"c:\temp\BatMan.arb"); file.WriteLine(richTextBox1.Text.TrimEnd()); file.Close(); } } }

OK, now were getting somewhere, 10,000 data points that can be transmitted at almost any speed, the bat sensors can decode at the other end knowing the formula and oh... um what about Alfred, he needs a screen that looks like well something ordinary

an Oscilloscope shouts scientist number 3, Mr Wayne is always playing with them and so it would be normal to see many at Wayne manor just lying around... Boys and their Toys

Ok, testing time, where's the generator

Holy Bat cave , its gone already, its on the Bat net but over in the Bat cave

What's this!, someone has left a secret package at he lab, its not ticking so lets open it

wow, everyone gasps in Awe, its the Agilent BenchVue software, this is great, we can send the data remotely to the generator at the bat cave for testing and batman can deliver it later to GCPD... Perfect

So here is the actual upload and testing secretly videoed for your enjoyment
