In this section, the measurement functionality of the SHFQC is described, i.e. the functionality that is useful when setting up and carrying out experiments. Each chapter first introduces the functionality, provides a summary of the functional elements before - if applicable - explaining the representation in the LabOne general user interface.
The instrument functionality is a combination of the functionalities of
the SHFQA and SHFSG and is thus identical in most aspects to what is
described in the
manuals. 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 different channels of the SHFQC, each of which is
represented by its own version of the QAChannels (
/dev..../qachannels/0/...), or SGChannels (
/dev..../sgchannels/n/...) branch. Functionality that
is either independent of the output Channels or shared between them has
its 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.
