WHY write it yourself when you don't have to?
YOU DON'T NEED
to employ COSTLY consultants
YOU DON'T NEED to know the
INTRICACIES of SCPI
NEED A ROBUST SCPI PARSER.
In the current market, creating the
ultimate programmable instrument is not enough to maximize your sales.
Customers, in order to keep their own costs down, demand equipment that
supports the industry-standard control language.
SCPI (Standard Commands for
Programmable Instrumentation) is by far the industry standard today,
used by Agilent, Fluke, Tektronix, and many others.
By using JPA-SCPI Parser, your
instrument can interpret SCPI commands with ease! Its easy-to-use access
functions and full documentation mean that your instrument can be
"talking SCPI today!"
