VISA: 53131/32/81 Rise and Fall Time Read Me

53131A, 53132A, 53181A VISA and VB6.0 Rise and Fall Time Example Program

This program shows two different ways to make risetime and falltime measurements for the 
53131A and 53132A Counters. One way triggers the counter at the 5% and 85% value of the 
input signal (default values are 10% and 90%). The other way uses the 0.5V low and 4.5V 
high voltage values of the signale (default values are 0V and 5V). With the risetime and
falltime functions, the counter automatically makes the channels 1 and 2 a common input 
configuration. The returned measurements are output into a list box.

The program requires a 1kHz 5Vpeak signal, or similar, connected to Ch 1.

The program requires that VISA is installed in your computer. VISA comes with the 
Agilent I/O Library. Also include the visa32.bas file in the project.

The program was developed in Microsoft® Visual Basic version 6.0
