The soft front panel (SFP) supports the following file formats:
• Signal Studio (.wfm)
• Binary (.bin) (Single or Double, automatic detection)
• Text Files, Comma separated (.CSV) or Tab separated (.txt)
• Matlab Files (.mat)
Using the API, the M9381A driver provides several interfaces for loading waveforms into the VSG. Waveforms that are created with the Agilent Signal Studio applications can be directly loaded into the M9381A, allowing users to use the exact same modulation data files between the M9381A and other Agilent Signal Generators, such as the N5182B MXG signal generator. For Signal Studio files, the API simply needs a reference name for the waveform and full path to the file.
Binary data files with interleaved I and Q data in single or double precision floating point and 16 bit integer formats can also be loaded directly into the M9381A. There are also methods in the IVI driver to load these same data formats from arrays of data, allowing the user to import data from other file formats or to generate the waveform data directly in the application program.
More information on the M9381A can be found here: http://www.agilent.com/find/M9381A
I hope this helped -
