Quick Control Function Generator

Communicate with IVI-C function generators using Quick Control interface

You can use the Quick-Control Function Generator to communicate with any function generator that uses an underlying IVI-C driver. However, you do not have to directly deal with the underlying driver. This easy-to-use function generator, or fgen, is used for simplified fgen control and waveform generation.

Create the Quick-Control Function Generator object using the fgen function. It simplifies controlling function generators and performs arbitrary waveform generations without dealing with the underlying drivers. You create an fgen object, configure it, then communicate with the instrument. You can generate both standard waveforms and arbitrary waveforms. The examples below outline the whole workflow for each type of waveform generation.

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