Measurement Functionality

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 SHFSG+ and SHFQA+ user 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.
