Connect to the AWG5014 in Python
PROTOCOLS > SCPI
Here is an example Python script that uses Qcodes to connect to a Tektronix AWG5014 RF Signal Generator:
This script connects to the AWG5014 using the IP address ‘192.168.1.1’. It sets the waveform, amplitude, and offset for channels 1 and 2, and then runs the AWG. Finally, it disconnects from the AWG.
