Displaying waveform from oscilloscope in Labview

Solved!
Go to solution

Hi all,

 

I am trying to display a waveform from an Oscilloscope I have connected up to my PC. All has been connected correctly which has been checked in NI MAX. I now need to write a program to display the waveform of the Oscilloscope in the program. Once displayed the program needs to be capable of measuring the peaks of the waves. 

Some details:

- Model: TDS 3034C

- Connection is serial.

 

Thank you for any help,

Hraym

  1. Look for a LabVIEW driver in the InstrumentDriverNetwork (www.ni.com/idnet) for your scope.
    Use that driver to communicate with your scope.
    When there is no (suitable) driver: read the programming manual of your scope and write your own driver.
  2. Now implement your "peak detection" for the waveforms read from the scope.
    (LabVIEW already has a PeakDetection function, maybe you can use it!?)
Best regards,

There is a driver and example available at Tektronix TDS3034C 300 MHz Digital Phosphor Oscil

Download and extract it to <LabVIEW>\instr.lib
