Instrument Control Toolbox

Tektronix Instruments and MATLAB

Tektronix manufactures arbitrary waveform generators, oscilloscopes, signal analyzers, and other test equipment. You can use MATLAB together with Instrument Control Toolbox as your single software environment to configure, control, acquire, and analyze data from Tektronix instruments.

Once data is in MATLAB, you can analyze and visualize that data for tasks such as signal processing, statistical analysis, digital filtering, and curve fitting. You can also create graphical interfaces for collecting and analyzing your data and automating tests.

Tektronix Instrument Drivers

Instrument drivers let you communicate with your instrument using higher-level commands. MATLAB supports many instrument drivers for Tektronix instruments. See the getting started guide: Using MATLAB with Tektronix Oscilloscopes in 15 minutes. MATLAB also supports any instrument that uses the IVI, LXI, or VXIplug&play standards.

Communication Protocols

If an instrument driver is not available for your instrument, you can communicate directly with the instrument using SCPI commands over these communication protocols:
