Rohde & Schwarz Instruments and MATLAB
Rohde & Schwarz provides instruments such as signal generators, audio analyzers, network analyzers, and spectrum analyzers. You can use MATLAB together with Instrument Control Toolbox as your single software environment to configure, control, acquire, and analyze data from Rohde & Schwarz instruments.
Once data is in MATLAB, you can make customized measurements, perform data analysis, generate arbitrary waveforms, and develop automated tests. You can also create graphical interfaces for collecting and analyzing your data and automating tests.
Rohde & Schwarz Instrument Drivers
Instrument drivers let you communicate with your instrument using higher-level commands. MATLAB supports IVI and VXIplug&play instrument drivers and LXI-compliant instruments. If an IVI or VXIplug&play driver is available, you can use your instrument with Instrument Control Toolbox by installing the driver and then automatically creating a MATLAB driver wrapper by following the instructions in the MATLAB IVI or MATLAB VXIplug&play documentation. Some instrument drivers have preconfigured MATLAB wrappers.
Find Rohde & Schwarz Instrument Drivers
- Instrument driver search tool (search by model name or number)
- IVI Foundation Driver Registry
If an instrument driver is not available for your instrument, you can communicate directly with the instrument using SCPI commands over these communication protocols:
