Agilent 3000 series oscilloscopes are not SCPI compliant. I do not understand why, considering that HP (Agilent) is a founding member of the SCPI Consortium. Other Agilent instruments, like the DMMs are SCPI compliant. On the other hand, the last published SCPI standard is from 1999. Does that mean that it is no longer maintained? The SCPI Consortium merged with the IVI Foundation in the spring of 2003. Since that date the IVI Foundation assumed control of the SCPI specifications, but no newer SCPI standard has been published in their webpage. Has the IVI Foundation abandoned the SCPI standard?
