There is no separate manual for 16900 programming. Everything is in the help file, which is loaded with the software, or can be gotten as a separate download from the Agilent website. Use the index to get to 'COM Automation'.

Programming is done through a Windows COM or DCOM connection, so there is not a visa driver, as far as I know. This is VERY different from the SCPI commands that are used for other instruments.

There are example programs provided through the menu. Start -> Programs -> Agilent Logic Analyzer -> Utilities -> COM Automation. The source for some additional languages, including Python, Perl, and Tcl, is in the help file.
