Quick Control Oscilloscope

Communicate with IVI-C oscilloscopes using Quick Control interface

You can use the Quick-Control Oscilloscope to communicate with any oscilloscope that uses an underlying IVI-C driver. However, you do not have to directly deal with the underlying driver. You can also use it for Tektronix® oscilloscopes. Quick Control Oscilloscope is an easy to use interface for getting up and running quickly using IVI-C oscilloscopes.

To acquire waveforms, you create an oscilloscope object, configure it, then communicate with the scope. For an example of the whole workflow, see Read Waveforms Using Quick-Control Oscilloscope.

See the Function and Property Reference for a list of the functions that are supported for the oscilloscope object, and the properties you can set.

Examples and How To

Read Waveforms Using Quick-Control Oscilloscope

This example shows how to use Quick-Control Oscilloscope to read waveforms.

Read Waveforms Using a Tektronix Scope

This example shows how to use Quick-Control Oscilloscope to read waveforms from a Tektronix scope, which uses different resource and driver information than the Keysight™ scope.

Concepts

Instrument Control Toolbox Support Package for National Instruments VISA and ICP Interfaces

The Instrument Control Toolbox™ Support Package for National Instruments® VISA and ICP Interfaces allows you to use the Quick Control Oscilloscope, Quick Control Function Generator, and Quick-Control RF Signal Generator interfaces.

Quick Control Oscilloscope Requirements

You can use the Quick-Control Oscilloscope for any oscilloscope that uses an underlying IVI-C driver. However, you do not have to directly deal with the underlying driver.
