Measurement Functionality

In this section, the measurement functionality of the HDAWG is described, i.e. the functionality that is useful when setting up and carrying out experiments. Each chapter first introduces the functionality and feature description, and then provides a summary of the functional elements.

The functionality is represented by a node tree. Each node can either set, read or poll settings or data from the device. This can be done either through the General User Interface, or through our APIs. Most of the functionality resides within the main branches of the HDAWG, each of which is represented by its own feature, e.g. /DEV...​./AWG/, /DEV...​./SIGOUTS/ or /DEV...​./SINES/. Some functionality is shared between channels or branches and thus have their own branch, e.g. common device features (/DEV...​./Features/...​), or system features (/DEV...​./systems/n/...​). All nodes are listed within the node tree documentation.


The following chapters are constantly being upgraded and new documentation is added. For the latest version of the documentation, please always refer to the online documentation.
