You can use the Quick-Control Oscilloscope, which is included in the Instrument Control Toolbox™ Support Package for National Instruments® VISA and ICP Interfaces, for 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.
The documentation examples use a specific instrument, a Keysight™ MSO6104 oscilloscope. This feature works with any IVI-C class oscilloscope. You can follow the basic steps, using your particular instrument.
To use the Quick-Control Oscilloscope for an IVI-C scope, you must have the following software installed. Most components are installed by the Instrument Control Toolbox Support Package for National Instruments VISA and ICP Interfaces.
