Instrument Driver and I/O Software

  • Increase performance with IVI state caching and multithreading
  • Instrument interchangeability minimizes system downtime
  • VISA I/O software simplifies integrating systems across different buses

One of the most important components in test systems today is instrument driver software. Instrument drivers perform the communication and control of the instruments in the system. Interchangeable Virtual Instruments (IVI) is a new standard for instrument driver software technology that incorporates features to address system performance, development flexibility, and instrument interchangeability. VISA I/O software is a comprehensive package for configuring, programming, and troubleshooting instrumentation systems comprised of GPIB, Serial, VXI, PXI, Ethernet, and USB interfaces.
