1. Dependent on support by third-party vendor driver for the hardware on this platform.
2. Dependent on third-party vendor support of platform when using an IVI-driver with Quick-Control Oscilloscope or Quick-Control Function Generator.
3. Requires Keysight™ (formerly Agilent®), National Instruments™, Tektronix®, Rohde and Schwarz R&S VISA, or TAMS VISA compliant with VISA specification 5.0 or higher for any platform. Only National Instruments VISA and Rohde and Schwarz R&S VISA are supported on macOS. The other vendors’ VISA support does not include macOS.
4. Requires Keysight (formerly Agilent), ICS Electronics™, Measurement Computing™ (MCC), ADLINK Technology, or National Instruments hardware and driver.
5. Requires Aardvark or National Instruments hardware and driver.
