To use instruments via the IVI interface, you need to install IVI drivers, VISA, and shared components. For information about these requirements, see Getting Started with IVI Drivers.
You can use the MATLAB IVI-C Wrappers provided with the Instrument Control Toolbox with IVI drivers of the same class. Supported IVI driver classes include IviScope, IviFgen, IviSwitch, IviRFSigGen, and many others. For information and examples, see Using IVI-C Class-Compliant Wrappers.
Quick-Control Oscilloscope, Function Generator, and RF Signal Generator are easy to use interfaces that let you communicate with scopes, function generators, and RF signal generators without dealing with the underlying driver. For requirements and examples, see Quick-Control Interfaces.

Examine your IVI driver installation. Create MATLAB® IVI instrument drivers. Create device objects for MATLAB IVI instrument drivers.
The IVI-C wrappers provide an interface to MATLAB for instruments running on IVI-C class-compliant drivers.
Instrument Control Toolbox™ can communicate with instruments using Interchangeable Virtual Instrument (IVI) drivers. The toolbox supports IVI-C drivers, provided by various instrument manufacturers.
With IVI® class-compliant drivers, you can exchange instruments with minimal code changes.
Examine and configure your IVI configuration store.
These properties are available in the toolbox.
Try these tips if you have problems using the toolbox with the IVI, VISA, and Quick-Control interfaces. Includes information about supported platforms, adaptor requirements, configuration and connection, and other interface-specific tips.
