About Command Expert

Keysight's Command Expert software combines instrument commands, documentation, syntax checking, command execution, and code generation all in one simple interface. Command Expert works with instruments that use Standard Commands for Programmable Instrumentation (SCPI), IVI-C,  IVI-COM, or IVI.NET drivers.

Command Expert generates a SCPI.NET driver for each SCPI command set you install, for use in Visual Studio applications.

Command Expert Add-ons let you use Command Expert for easy instrument control in Excel, LabVIEW, MATLAB, Python, SystemVue, VEE, and Visual Studio.
