Programming Interface Translator Technical Brief
Select Tektronix oscilloscopes include a programming command translator which allows new scopes to receive and interpret commands originally designed for "legacy" instruments. This facilitates the replacement of older oscilloscopes in automated systems while limiting the impact to existing code. Common translations are included "out of the box", but the translator can also be customized. This technical brief explains the structure of the translator and gives four examples which can be used as templates for customization.
