Hi, I have a dual channel waveform that I created on benchlink waveform builder. I can load that dual waveform to the generator through direct USB connection to the PC or Ethernet, and all is well. But if I save the waveform on a USB stick and try to load the waveform through the USB front panel, I get an error that "Dual channel waveforms are not… (Show more)

Is it possible to download (e.g. from an USB stick) and generate my own (arbitrary) waveform with 33509B if my 33509B does not have the arbitrary waveform generator option (335ARB1U)?

Hello! I am trying to control a 33220A function generator using python socket. I am pretty new to socket programming and have no idea why my code doesn't work. I did something like command = 'some command string' session=socket.socket(socket.AF_INET,socket.SOCK_STREAM) session.connect((ip_address,5025)) session.sendall(command.encode())… (Show more)

Hello, I have seen people using this instrument (33612A) in Dual mode with the Inverted Tracking option on to emulate fully differential signals. But I am wondering how the signals would behave if we add an offset to the tracked channel. Does it end up with a common mode voltage or does a negative offset is added to the inverted channel ? Thank… (Show more)

Hello All, what I want to do is update the firmware to my Agilent 33220A function generator. I have tried to do this via USB, and via IP. Both Times, I get a message stating the visa IO library is missing. Please, how can I update the firmware for this device? my current firmware is v2.0. I want to update the v2.7 or whatever is newest.  … (Show more)

We have real problems connecting to an M8190A via PCIe. The soft front panel will just come up with a simulated unit. I've tried all combinations of the order I start things. The manual says to start the AWG first, but that doesn't guarantee it working. The Access and Status lights are both green. I can see the PXI in Connection Expert.   I am… (Show more)

   This question concerns the 33120A Function Generator. I am having trouble selecting a Burst Count and Burst Rate. On POR, the unit defaults to 1 kHz and 100 mVpp.  That is all ok for this question. I then select Shift-Burst-Shift-Left arrow (Burst Count is displayed).  Select the down arrow to get the parameter.  I use the knob to select 12… (Show more)

I'm testing simple scenarios such as a single waveform played once. I call AGN6030A_CreateArbWaveform to get a handle and pass it in an array to AGN6030A_CreateArbSequence. In this case the loop count array just contains 1 on the first entry. I get the error "Not a valid configuration."   What potential issues are there for this scenario? Is… (Show more)
