Quick Control RF Signal Generator

Communicate with IVI-C RF signal generators using Quick Control interface

The Quick Control interface for RF Signal Generators joins the Quick-Control Instruments family of Quick-Control Oscilloscope and Quick-Control Function Generator. You can use this interface for simplified RF signal generator control and waveform generation.

Create the Quick-Control RF Signal Generator object using the Instrument Control Toolbox™ rfsiggen function. It provides simplified control of signal generators and performs arbitrary waveform generation without dealing with the underlying drivers. You can use it with RF signal generators that use IVI-C drivers.
