Instructions for installing Tegam 1830A IVI Drivers

Post by csperrazza »

An IVI driver was developed by Tegam for the 1830A RF Thermistor Power Meter. The following instructions are in accordance with the IVI Foundation guidelines.

About IVI and The IVI Foundation

The IVI Foundation is an open consortium founded to promote specifications for programming test instruments that simplify interchangeability, provide better performance, and reduce the cost of program development and maintenance.http://www.ivifoundation.org/

Why Shared Components
To make it easier for you to combine drivers and other software from various vendors, the IVI Foundation members have cooperated to provide common software components, called IVI Shared Components. These components provide services to drivers and driver clients that need to be common to all drivers. For instance, the IVI Configuration Server enables administration of system-wide configuration.
From the IVI Foundation

Important! You must install the IVI Shared Components before an IVI driver can be installed.
