Agilent 546xx Oscilloscope PC Software
« on: February 13, 2020, 12:04:26 am »
Hey all

This may (or not) be of some use to some of you here, I own an Agilent 54622A and I was gutted to find that none of the PC software for these scopes exists any more (and even if it did, it's for Windows and I am a Linux user)

So I decided to do what any sane person would do and wrote some software for it.

The software is pretty basic, just grabs the currently displayed waveform (with all offsets and scaling etc intact). It's pretty slow as it's limited to 57,600 baud. I have the GPIB add on for mine, but need an adapter for the PC.

Software can be found here: https://github.com/Black-FX/scopetool

Usage is very simple:
Code: [Select]
scopetool [-h] [-1] [-2] [--port USB_PORT] [--speed USB_SPEED]
For example:
Code: [Select]
$ scopetool -p /dev/ttyUSB0 -s 57600 -1 -2
I have attached a couple of images of it in action.

It should work on Linux, Mac and Windows.

I would be very interested to hear if it works on other scopes outside the 546xx family.

Enjoy!
