TekVISA is an implementation of the industry-standard VISA API for use with Tektronix oscilloscopes, including the Open Windows desktop on Tektronix Windows oscilloscopes. Utilizing this Open Windows desktop and TekVISA, MATLAB applications can communicate with the oscilloscope directly from within a Windows oscilloscope or from a connected PC. TekVISA allows the oscilloscope to look like a standard device connected to the computer through a LAN, GPIB, or serial interface. MATLAB and the Instrument Control Toolbox allow the user to send commands to the instrument through TekVISA to automate the process of data collection, setup, and any other functionality available to the device.
Design engineers, research and development scientists, and many test and measurement professionals will benefit using MATLAB and TekVISA to convert their oscilloscope into a custom analysis tool that collects the data, processes it, and generates reports at higher communication rates.
