Instrument Drivers

LabVIEW®, LabWindows/CVI®, VXIplug&play, IVI-COM

Rohde & Schwarz offers free LabVIEW®, LabWindows/CVI® and VXIplug&play instrument drivers supporting the latest firmware releases, as well as IVI-COM instrument drivers. The use of Rohde & Schwarz instrument drivers requires VISA software installation, for example R&S®VISA on your host PC.

For more details about instrument drivers, refer to:

  • The aim of this application note is to provide information regarding Rohde & Schwarz instrument drivers. This paper shall help application engineers and software developers to easily get an understanding of advanced techniques to develop test and measurement (T&M) applications by utilizing Rohde & Schwarz instrument drivers. Furthermore the nomenclature used for Rohde & Schwarz instrument drivers will be explained.

  • This white paper introduces a novel attribute based architecture for VXIplug&play instrument drivers. The presented architecture uses the attribute based concept of IVI-C instrument drivers to introduce a two-layer design for VXIplug&play instrument drivers. Moreover the use of attributes is shown for the Rohde & Schwarz Spectrum Analyzer (rsspecan) instrument driver.

  • This application note outlines two different approaches for remote-controlling Rohde & Schwarz instruments out of MathWorks MATLAB:

    The first one uses VISA connection and plain SCPI commands.

    The second approach takes advantage of Rohde & Schwarz VXI plug&play instrument drivers and MATLAB Instrument Control Toolbox.

  • The aim of this application note is to provide information regarding Rohde & Schwarz (R&S®) instrument drivers for R&S®CMU200. This document describes how to use the R&S®CMU200 VXIPlug&Play drivers in Microsoft Visual Basic.NET or C# using Visual Studio.

  • This application note explains how to create screenshots of Rohde & Schwarz instruments using instrument drivers. The presented examples are written in C (LabWindows/CVI), C# programming language and LabVIEW. The examples are available at the instrument driver download site.

Further information about how to use IVI-COM drivers can be found in the “Getting Started Guide” available at Numerous Rohde & Schwarz instruments support the LXI standard, which requires IVI drivers.

To select the correct instrument driver for your development environment and operating system, refer to the table on Instrument Drivers and Remote Control.
