Instrument Control Toolbox

Keithley Instruments and MATLAB

Keithley Instruments manufactures electronic instruments for high-performance production testing, process monitoring, product development, and research. You can use MATLAB together with Instrument Control Toolbox as your single software environment to configure, control, acquire, and analyze data from Keithley instruments.

Once data is in MATLAB, you can analyze and visualize that data for tasks such as signal processing, statistical analysis, digital filtering, and curve fitting. You can also create graphical interfaces for collecting and analyzing your data and automating tests.

Keithley Instrument Drivers

Instrument drivers let you communicate with an instrument using higher-level commands. Keithley provides MATLAB instrument drivers that use the IVI specification for the following instruments: Keithley 2910 and 2920 Vector Signal Generators, 2810 and 2820 Vector Signal Analyzers, and 3706 System Switch.
