Rohde & Schwarz Instruments and MATLAB

Rohde & Schwarz provides instruments such as signal generators, audio analyzers, network analyzers, and spectrum analyzers. You can use MATLAB together with Instrument Control Toolbox as your single software environment to configure, control, acquire, and analyze data from Rohde & Schwarz instruments.

Once data is in MATLAB, you can make customized measurements, perform data analysis, generate arbitrary waveforms, and develop automated tests. You can also create graphical interfaces for collecting and analyzing your data and automating tests.

Rohde & Schwarz Instrument Drivers

Instrument drivers let you communicate with your instrument using higher-level commands. MATLAB supports IVI and VXIplug&play instrument drivers and LXI-compliant instruments. If an IVI or VXIplug&play driver is available, you can use your instrument with Instrument Control Toolbox by installing the driver and then automatically creating a MATLAB driver wrapper by following the instructions in the MATLAB IVI or MATLAB VXIplug&play documentation. Some instrument drivers have preconfigured MATLAB wrappers.
