The IVI-C driver architecture is defined by the Interchangeable Virtual Instruments (IVI) Foundation and is supported and used by instrumentation manufacturers and end users around the world.
The ZT530 series IVI-C driver complies with the IviFgen specification, including the IviFgenBase Capability Group and the following extensions: StdFunc, ArbWfm, ArbFrequency, Trigger, SoftwareTrigger, and ZtecExtensions.
In addition to IVI-C, ZTEC also offers ZT530 drivers that provide hooks into key programming environments such as: C, LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, COM, Visual Studio and others.
The ZWave soft front panel (SFP) application has also been improved and updated. The GUI enables complete instrument control via a Windows PC (Windows 2000/XP/Vista) or a workstation running Linux 2.6.x. ZWave's operation is similar to a benchtop function generator.
