zhinst-qcodes Changelog#

Version 0.5.0#

  • Updated to zhinst-toolkit 0.5.0

  • Added support for LabOne DAQ module

  • Added support for LabOne Sweeper module

  • Added support for LabOne Scope module

  • Avoid connecting to node when cache update set to false

Version 0.4.1#

  • Add new class zhinst.toolkit.Sequence that allows a more flexible use of sequences in toolkit (#141).

  • Add support for session wide transactions that bundle set command from all devices connected to the data server. (#134)

  • Add from_existing_connection() to zhinst.toolkit.Session to help reusing the existing DataServer connection.

  • Bugfix: Nodes with nameless options don’t raise an exception when their enum attribute is called (#165).

  • Bugfix: Values of enumerated nodes can now be pickled (#129).

  • Adapt toolkit to use the offline awg compiler when uploading a sequencer code to a awg node. Improves the performance a lot and also enables the uploading of a sequencer code within a transaction (Works both for AWGs and Generators).

  • Add new function compile_sequencer_code to the awg node.

Version 0.3.5#

  • Adapt AWG Waveform upload (write_to_waveform_memory) to append to existing transactions.

  • Make consistency validate during waveform upload optional (new flag validate in write_to_waveform_memory).

  • Add get_sequence_snippet function to zhinst.toolkit.Waveforms class. The function is able to generated a sequence code snippet that defines and assigns the waveforms for this object. Additional meta information like an optional name or the output configuration can be specified through a newly added Wave class from zhinst.toolkit.Waveforms.

  • Getting a value by calling a wildcard node now returns zhinst.toolkit.nodetree.node.WildcardResult

Version 0.3.4#

  • Commandtable.load_validation_schema can also get the command table JSON schema from the device.

  • load_sequencer_program now raises an ValueError if empty sequencer_program string is given. #138

  • Added a new raise_for_invalid_node keyword-argument to NodeTree.update_nodes. #110

    Now only a warning (instead of KeyError) is issued when trying to initialize device/module object, which does not have nodes defined in node value parsers.

  • Minor type hint fixes.#147

Version 0.3.3#

  • Added support for SHFQC

Version 0.3.2#

  • Added a helper function uhfqa.qas[n].integration.write_integration_weights for QAS integration weights configuration

  • Bugfix: Adapt Node Tree to be able to get daq result data #113

  • Bugfix: in the Waveform class to be able to convert a single waveform into a complex waveform.

  • Bugfix: HF2 PID nodes are available.

Version 0.3.1#

  • Add missing nodes setting for QCCS mode #108

  • pqsc.check_zsync_connection blocks even if nothing is connected

  • Create a temporary awg module every time a sequencer code is uploaded (The reason for it is to have a defined state) #104

  • reintroduce uhfqa.qa_delay function

  • uhfli/uhfqa return node object for uhfli.awg instead of raising an error (necessary for qcodes drivers) #102

  • hdawg.enable_qccs_mode wrong reference clock source fixed

  • Small docstring corrections

Version 0.3#

  • Redesign and complete refactoring of zhinst-toolkit

    • Lazy node tree to improve setup times

    • Switch to session based approach (no longer device based)

    • Command table handling improved

    • Waveform handling improved

    • Removed automated sequencer code generation

    • Added LabOne modules

  • Improved testing with mocking

Version 0.2.4#

  • Adapt modulation frequency range to +-1GHz (shfsg.sgchannels[i].modulation_freq, shfqa.qachannels[i].sweeper.oscillator_freq)

  • Bugfix: DAQ module timeout exception raises AttributeError

Version 0.2.3#

  • Make the command table validation optional

Version 0.2.2#

  • SHFQA Adapt oscillator_freq to +-500e6 Hz

  • Initial support for SHFSG
