This sample program configures a frequency sweep and generates an SRQ interrupt on completion.
Date: April 2005
Language: Agilent VEE Pro 7.5 (or later)
Instruments: Signal Geneartor
OS Requirements: Microsoft® Windows® 2000 or XP
Additional Software: Agilent IO Libraries Suite 14.0 (or later)
This sample program configures the signal generator to execute a frequency sweep. On completion of the frequency sweep an SRQ interrupt is generated. This allows easy re-synchronization between the software routine and the instrument. The use of SRQs avoids having to poll the instrument to determine when it has completed the requested action. On completion of the sweep the stimulus parameters and sweep performance data are stored to an Excel file. This sample program is supported by the ESG-B series of signal generators including the E4430B, E4431B, E4432B, E4433B, E4434B, E4435B, E4436B, E4437B.
