April 04 C Electronic Test Instruments Programming test instruments doesn't need to be difficultAndy PurcellAlthough normally associated with enterprise application development, C can also be used in the lab, on the factory floor, and in similar environments that involve electronic test and measurement instrument control.

VISA is a specification developed by the VXIplug Systems Alliance, which identifies a common I/O API for communicating over a variety of bus interfaces, including GPIB, VXI, USB, and Ethernet. A number of vendors have tools that support this specification, including Agilent (the company I work for). In this article, I'll use C and VISA compliant software to develop test programs. Then I'll improve the test program by using software compliant with the Interchangeable Virtual Instrument (IVI) specification. While test program applications are traditionally written in C, C++, and Visual Basic, C provides several benefits when compared to these languages [1]. With C, for instance, C/C++ programmers can easily create applications with a GUI and not have to learn MFC or Visual Basic. You can develop programs immune to memory leaks. You can also use arrays and automatically detect any out of bound array accesses. And with C, you can write programs free of assignment mistakes (if (a=3) {.} instead of if (a==3) {.}). And since C applications are compiled (not interpreted), they offer faster execution times than Visual Basic programs. While learning any new programming language can be daunting, learning C does not have to be especially for experienced C/C++ programmers. It supports the familiar bool, int, float, and double types and multidimensional arrays of types. The syntax for declarations (int a;) and expressions (a=3;) is very much like C and C++. C has the familiar operators, such as +,,!,,, /, ++,,, ==, and the like. C has if else, switch, continue, break, goto, and the for, while, and do while looping constructs to control program execution. Enumerated types and structs can be defined. You can create C classes with private, protected, and public variables and methods. Classes can inherit from base classes, and base classes can have virtual members. All in all, this is very much like C++. But as you might expect, there are some new types in C. The string type, for instance, contains an immutable set of Unicode characters. Creating GUIs in C is as easy as in Visual Basic. All you need to do is drag the Label, Button, GroupBox, CheckBox, and like items from the Toolbox onto a Windows Form. Tooltip help, tabbing, louis vuitton agenda tumblr and pull down menus are also easy to set up. Another simple task is creating a distributed application that consists of a server application running on one computer and a client program running on a different louis vuitton alma youtube one. When both computers are connected on the network, the client can call methods on the server (a process referred to as "remoting"). Moreover, it is just as easy to create an application that remembers state information; for example, a UI setting. This is done using the DynamicProperties of an object. C provides get and set accessors to read and write object properties (member variables). These are naturally grouped together, as shown in Listing 1(a) and Listing 1(b). Of course, there are things that are commonly done in C/C++ that are more difficult in C the use of pointers, for instance. Pointers for memory manipulation must be done inside unsafe code blocks and the fixed keyword must pin the object the pointer is pointing to so that it won't be moved by the garbage collector. fixed ( byte pSource = )fixed ( byte pDest = ){ pDest = pSource;}Pointer arithmetic is disallowed: fixed ( byte pSource = )fixed ( byte pDest = ){ pDest++ = pSource++; // won't compile}Multiple inheritance is something else you can do in C/C++ that you can't do in C. There is no multiple inheritance in C, although a C class can implement multiple interface classes. This may cause concern for some programmers, but over the years I've only once used multiple inheritance in C++. Building a Test/Measurement ApplicationThe sample application I present here is a test and measurement system that communicates with a function generator. The application includes a GUI that lets users control the sine wave frequency. Agilent I/O Library (VISA) Software. Agilent 33220A Function Generator. USB cable. The concepts and programming details I provide here are applicable even if other test equipment is used, and much of the detail presented here pertains to any C application. Step 1: Creating the Skeleton Application. In the dialog box that pops up, select Visual C, Windows Application, and an appropriate directory and project name. I used "functionGenerator_1" as the project name. The IDE then automatically creates several files; see Table 1. Step 2: Creating the User Interface. To let users control the frequency, add a GUI TrackBar item onto Form1. Move the mouse over the Toolbox area on the left, then drag a TrackBar onto Form1. Figure 1 shows the TrackBar about to be added to Form1. The Toolbox contains many familiar GUI controls, ready to add to the GUI just by dragging onto Form1. After adding the TrackBar GUI item, add three Label items from the Toolbox and set the Text properties equal to: Frequency, 1 Hz, and 30 KHz. After selecting BuildBuild Solution and DebugStart, the skeleton app should run and display Figure 2. Naturally, your results will vary, depending on your placement of the Label boxes and the TrackBar properties; I set TrackBar minimum to 1, TrackBar maximum to 30,000. At this point, I haven't manually typed in any C code, yet I already have the beginnings of a GUI for the application. Step 3: Adding VISA Initialization Calls. Here's where you add C code to initialize the VISA software. The VISA software is a DLL, and for each DLL function a amazon uk louis vuitton handbags C application calls, a DllImport (or DllImportAttribute) statement must be added so that the C compiler knows how to insert code to call the function. The sesn parameter is an output parameter and a session to the VISA default resource manager. viOpen(ViSession sesn, ViRsrc rsrcName, ViAccessMode accessMode, ViUInt32 timeout, ViSession vi). The italic text represents code that has been manually added. For brevity, I've omitted error checking. Notice that the VISA viOpenDefaultRM() and viOpen() are done just after InitializeComponent(), after the TODO: comment that was automatically generated. viOpen() uses the rsrcName string functionGenerator, which is an alias set up by users when the function generator is first attached via USB. Next, add the Form1 class variables in Listing 3. The programMessage byte array is used as a buffer when calling viWrite(). Step 4: Adding VISA Calls to Change the Frequency. The IDE automatically adds additional skeleton code that executes when users change the TrackBar slider position. Listing 4 is event handler code that changes the function generator frequency. So after writing just 10 or so lines of C code, you have a simple program complete with a GUI which can be used to control the frequency of a function generator. C and IVI SoftwareAdmittedly, the program I've just presented has a limitation. The program message string syntax to change the frequency louis vuitton agenda setup is hard coded, and may need to change if a different function generator is used. This is because the syntax to change frequency may not be universally understood. If an application uses IVI software and only calls the specification required functions, there should be no need to change the application code if a different instrument is used. Since Agilent has IVI software available for the 33220 function generator, I'll use it to develop a second application that also sets the frequency. I use IVI COM software because C has built in support for COM. After installing the software, go ahead and create a new project, but this time call it functionGenerator_IVI_1. To use COM objects in C, you must add a reference to the COM object. In the Solution Explorer window, add a reference by right clicking on References, then select Add Reference, then select the COM tab. As in Figure 3, scroll down to the IVI Agilent 33220 (Agilent Technologies) 1.

0 Type Library entry, then add it in using SelectOK. This is the only COM object reference that has to be manually added; the other necessary references are added automatically. The Solution Explorer window in Figure 4 should then appear.
