Using Python, Matlab, Igor Pro, C++, ...?

The SPM Programming Interface now supports custom scripts from any programming language.

The LabVIEW Programming interface is a powerful customization and automation tool, but not everybody wants to use LabVIEW as the default programming language. Python, in particular, is becoming one of the most relevant programming languages for experimental work.

As a result, we added a generic TCP interface to the Programming Interface add-on. The same functionality available in LabVIEW is now also available for generic scriping languages. The only requirement is the ability to communicate with a TCP port on the host PC, a requirement fulfilled by all languages listed above.

Every user of the LabVIEW programming interface will now have access to both versions.
