• Application "garfield.exe" is the bane of my existence

    I've been using this Agilent 33522A AWG for 3-4 years in my lab.  It has had the occasional crash from time to time, but now the crashes are so often I can't use the machine.  A dialog box pops up sayin...

  • Sequence does not trigger on External Trigger but works on Manual Trigger

    I created a sequence on the Waveform Builder Pro application. The sequence basically repeats 0V until a trigger, produces a ramp to 0.8V and then stays at 0.8V indefinitely.   After I transfer the sequence onto ...

  • Creating a sequence on N8241A in C++

    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 conta...

  • Retrieve waveform/trace out of M8190A

    Hi folks,   Is there a way to retrieve the data of a waveform/trace out of the M8190A? I am wondering in which way the Soft Front Panel synthesizes some multi-tone frequencies. I communicate with the M8190A over...
