Connect to IVI measurement device over USB




I have connected my device (USB Test and Measurement Device (IVI) - Driver: ausbtmc.sys) over USB and would like

to communicate with it in VS2008 .net C#!


I found out that I need the NationalInstruments.DAQmx library, but its not clear how it's possible to open a port and read/write DATA

over USB?



Thank you in advance for help!

Re: Connect to IVI measurement device over USB

Hey Peter,

It's tough to help without knowing exactly what instrument you are trying to communicate with. The make and model will get us started and the programmers manual for the instrument is going to be necessary in order to find the command list and syntax that the device expects.
