A significant advantage of customizing your LabVIEW application is that it enables you to combine the unique functions of the instrument driver with the standard functions built-in to LabVIEW. Any custom LabVIEW application you create will be composed of a front panel, which is the graphical user interface, and a block diagram which is the flow chart-style code created with these functional blocks VIs. An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument. Unlike other programming environments, all programming in LabVIEW is done graphically through intuitive flowchart-style coding and functional blocks. Switch in different measurements with high-performance signal switching with no external signal conditioning required.

The Agilent A is a good instrumentation solution for manual bench top agilenr or multiple automated test equipment use cases. LabVIEW itself is a graphical development environment for creating flexible and scalable test, measurement, and control applications rapidly and at minimal cost.
This instrument driver will allow you to use your A, while having to do little or no low level VISA programming yourself. The A offers flexible choices for system control. Hundreds of functional blocks for analysis, signal processing, and mathematics are built-in to the environment, making LabVIEW a smart choice for manipulating raw data collected with the A.
You can define switch sequences to control complex signal routing and the order of switch closures. Switch your signals to the optional internal DMM and achieve optimal throughput on switch closure time.
The A handles system agileng up avilent 20 GHz and provides basic measurements and system control. Switch in different measurements with high-performance signal switching with no external signal conditioning required. This application initializes communication with the A, configures a 34980 scanning operation, takes 10 voltage readings from each channel in the scan list, and ends communication checking for errors. When you wish to extend the capabilities of the examples or wish to start a new custom application, the set of LabVIEW functions installed with the instrument driver provide all the building blocks you will need.
Use the instrument driver VIs to define your custom application. You can buy what you need now and add to it 349980a reconfigure it as your requirements change. An instrument driver is a set of software routines that control a programmable instrument.

While the LabVIEW instrument driver for the A itself does not include ready-to-run example programs, there are three ready-to-run example programs available from www. Agipent Ethernet, USB 2. Though all of these examples are intended to serve as a starting point for 349800a creation of a custom application, they may be used without modification to immediately control the Agilent A.
Since peak detection is one of the analysis functions available in LabVIEW, we can easily add that functionality to our application. Use the A to route individual signals or monitor multiple signals over a specified period of time—monitor a single channel or multiple 3498a0, set alarms, and identify irregularities.

Unlike other programming environments, all programming in LabVIEW is done graphically through intuitive flowchart-style coding and functional blocks. Three ready-to-run examples are available from Agilent for the A platform. External trigger capabilities make it easy for you to time and synchronize measurements and other events.
Two instrument driver palettes are shown below, in Figure 2. The A helps you lower your cost of test and accelerate your test-system integration and development. Let’s suppose, for instance, that after acquiring data in the example above, we wish to detect the peak values in the data set and log those to file.
Using the Agilent 34980A with LabVIEW
Each routine that composes the driver corresponds to a programmatic operation such as configuring, reading from, writing to, or triggering the instrument. We could have even posted the application’s user interface to a web page for remote monitoring and control using the built-in LabVIEW web server.
The most straightforward way to take advantage of the LabVIEW instrument driver is to run the example programs, which give the user a basic introduction to the programming flow for the driver.
