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
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.
This example shows how to use Quick-Control Function Generator to generate a standard waveform.
This example shows how to use Quick-Control Function Generator to generate an arbitrary waveform.
The Instrument Control Toolbox™ Support Package for National Instruments™ VISA and ICP Interfaces allows you to use the Quick Control Oscilloscope, Quick Control Function Generator, and Quick-Control RF Signal Generator interfaces.
You can use the Quick-Control Function Generator for any function generator that uses an underlying IVI-C driver. However, you do not have to directly deal with the underlying driver.
Try these tips if you have problems using the toolbox with the IVI, VISA, and Quick-Control interfaces. Includes information about supported platforms, adaptor requirements, configuration and connection, and other interface-specific tips.
