Problem about generating triangle wave by AD9958

So my boss ask me use ad9958 generating a triangle wave

the first functionality i thought is using the linear sweep mode to do it

after using the evaluation board software tool Rev. 1.0 i find that maybe it is possible to do that

but i have confronted few problem

so the linear sweep mode can sweep the frequency at my desiring range and speed

but once it reach the max frequency i have to click the profile pin  manually to trigger the FDW to make it sweep back

is there any setting i can change to make it sweep back and sweep forward again and again to achieve my goal(triangle wave)


To deal with the above problem i have thought few way to improve it

i think that if it is possible I send a square wave to profile pin through the manual I/O control headers in usb mode to change the logic level of it to trigger the RDW and FDW repeatedly to make a triangle wave


If the above problem's answer is yes i would like using another channel to generate a square wave and send it back to profile pin but here comes the question can ad9958 generate a square wave by the evaluation software ? 


To control the profile pin i would like change the logic level to do it but i don't know the voltage of logic-1 and logic-0 of profile pin (i didn't find it in the spec maybe i missed it


So the above underline question is my problem .If any one can answer it I would be very thanksful
