155 Precision I/V Source IVI.NET Driver

155 IVI driver pre-requisites

It is recommended to download and install the following 155 IVI.NET driver pre-requisites before running the installer.

  1. Virtual Instrument Software Architecture (VISA) Implementation
    VISA is a widely used API for interfacing with test and measurement implementation. Many companies provide implementations of this standardized interface.

    The Model 155 IVI.NET driver was developed and tested with the National Instruments VISA implementation. The 155 IVI.NET driver is compatible with NI-VISA version 17.5 or later.

  2. IVI Shared Components
    In order for a driver to be IVI compliant, the IVI Foundation has defined shared software components that are required for the driver. In addition, IVI.NET drivers have their own shared components that must be installed as well. The IVI.NET shared components are dependent on the IVI shared components; therefore, it is recommended to install the IVI shared components first. Both sets of shared components can be found on the IVI Foundation website.
