I am looking for a teststand application that init

ialises a scope (tektronix tds210) to the optimal level of volts/div and sec/div from an input of the difference of 2 waves (ie 2 channels) from an E1 voice card. the purpose is to take accurate measurments so that the wave appears on the display as whole.
Thank you
Arik Any algorithms for the tektronix scope ie sampling results and thereby meauring Peak voltage thereby choosing suitable scale or examples will be helpfull

The tektronix tds210 driver that is on the National Instruments website comes in the form of a 32-bit DLL. You can call this DLL directly from TestStand using the DLL Flexible Prototype Adapter. For example, to initialize your scope, you would call the function
tktds2x0_init
OR
tktds2x0_InitWithOptions.

These two functions require the resource name of the device to initialize as a parameter.
You can also pass the name of a virtual instrument or logical name that you configure with the IVI Configuration utility. The virtual instrument identifies a specific device and specifies the initial
settings for the session.

The newer version of TestStand (2.0) includes IVI steps that configure/read/measure IVI-compliant scopes. With one single step i
n TestStand you can initialize a scope to a specific level and with another step you could read a measurement and display the soft front panel of the scope. With TestStand 1.0.x you have to call the tektronix DLL directly.
