Models in the family that supports the data acquisition toolbox are the U2701A and U2702A.

This example requires the instrument’s respective IVI-COM instrument driver to be installed in order to operate. This driver can be downloaded for free at:
http://www.agilent.com/find/ivi-com

This example also requires VISA software to be installed in order to connect to the instrument using IVI-COM drivers. The software is included in the Agilent IO Libraries and is available for download at:
http://www.agilent.com/find/iosuite

Please place AgilentU2701A.mdd which is the MATLAB IVI driver into the install directory of MATLAB {Matlab Installation Directory}\toolbox\instrument\instrument\drivers. For example, C:\MATLAB_R2009a\toolbox\instrument\instrument\drivers

Users would need to change the VISA address in the programming example to start using this to communicate it with the scope. User Interface like the bundled Agilent Measurement Manager (AMM) software is not available and this is in M-code format.

Programming Flow
1. Create an object which connected to device using VISA address
2. Connect to the device
3. Enable Channel 1
4. Read waveform from the device
5. Plot the waveform
6. Disconnect the device and delete the object
