Connecting to LDA-802-32 by Vaunix in Python
The LDA-802-32 Digital Attenuator is a rack mounted 32-channel high dynamic range, bidirectional, 50 Ohm step attenuator. The LDA-802-32 provides 120 dB of attenuation control range from 200 to 8000 MHz with a step size of 0.1 dB. The attenuators are easily programmable for fixed attenuation, swept attenuation ramps and user defined fading profiles directly from the included Graphical User Interface (GUI). Alternatively, for users wishing to develop their own interface, Vaunix supplies LabVIEW drivers, Windows API DLL files, Linux drivers, Python examples and much more.

Connect to the LDA-802-32 in Python
PROTOCOLS > SCPI
To connect to a LDA-802-32 Digital Attenuator using Qcodes Community, you can use the following Python script:
This script creates a
Station object to hold the instruments. It then connects to the LDA-802-32 Digital Attenuator using the
LDA driver from the
qcodes_contrib_drivers package. The attenuator is added to the station, and its IDN is printed. The attenuation is set to 10 dB, and finally, the connection to the attenuator is closed.
