Where Do I Download USB Device Driver For Tektronix USB Instruments?
Tektronix USB instruments use and require a generic USB Device Driver, referred to as a USB Test & Measurement Class driver or USBTMC driver. USBTMC is a subclass of the USB specification. This driver is typically included with the Virtual Instrument Software Architecture (VISA). (See block diagram below.)
For Tektronix oscilloscopes, this driver is included with TekVISA.
If you need simple communications between your Tektronix instrument and your PC, you may want to explore using Tektronix Open Choice Desktop application for communicating. You can down load the latest Open Choice Desktop below.
