keyoscacquire: Keysight oscilloscope acquire¶
keyoscacquire is a Python package for acquiring traces from Keysight InfiniiVision oscilloscopes through a VISA interface.
Based on PyVISA, keyoscacquire provides programmes for acquiring and exporting traces to your choice of ASCII format files (default csv) or numpy npy, and a png of the trace plot. The package also provides an API for integration in other Python code.
By default, the package uses the binary
WORD format for the waveform
transfer from the oscilloscope, giving roughly an order of magnitude speed-up
ASCII transfer type.
The code has been tested on Windows 7 and 10 with a Keysight DSO2024A model using a USB connection.
